New Delhi: Indian football team captain Sunil Chhetri on Wednesday called for negotiations between India and China while paying tribute to the Indian soldiers who were martyred in the Galwan Valley clash.

Twenty Indian Army men, including officers, were killed in an unprecedented violent clash with Chinese People's Liberation Army troops at Galwan Valley in Eastern Ladakh on Monday night, the Indian Army said in a statement on Tuesday.

Chhetri said that the matter should be resolved across the table and not at the border for the sake of the army personnel who died and those who are still in danger.

"Resolve this across a table while you can, not at the border. Act swiftly, for the sake of those army personnel who have died and for those who shouldn't," Chhetri tweeted.

"I can only hope that the families of those who have laid down their lives find strength to deal with their losses," he added. IANS
