Chinese and Indian military commanders have agreed to disengage their forces in a disputed area of the Himalayas following a clash that left at least 20 soldiers dead. Both countries say the commanders reached the agreement Monday in their first meeting since the June 15 confrontation. A Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson says the two sides agreed to take appropriate measures to cool down the situation. He denied apparent speculation by an Indian government minister that 40 Chinese troops had died in the June 15 clash. India has said that 20 of its soldiers died. China has not released any information on casualties on its side.
