Unlike India, China has not officially said if there it had suffered casualties.

But Hu Xijn, editor of the Global Times, tweeted that there were Chinese casualties but the government did not want to publish the numbers because they do not “want people of the two countries to compare the casualties number so to avoid stoking public mood. This is goodwill from Beijing.”
