NEW DELHI: Prime Minister

Narendra Modi

on Friday said that 20 of our brave soldiers made the supreme sacrifice for the nation in

Ladakh

but also taught a lesson to those who had dared to look towards our motherland.
Neither has anyone intruded into India's borders, nor has any post been taken over by China, PM Modi said during the all-party meet to discuss the situation along the India-China

border

.
The virtual meeting comes days after the death of 20 Indian Army personnel, including a colonel, in a violent clash with Chinese troops in

Galwan valley

in eastern Ladakh.
Here is what PM Modi said in his closing remarks at the meet:
* The country has immense faith in our soldiers. I want to assure our soldiers that the entire country is with them. All of us stand united with the soldiers defending our borders and repose full faith in their courage and bravery
* Neither have they (China) intruded into our border, nor has any post been taken over by them. 20 of our jawans were martyred, but those who dared

Bharat Mata

, they were taught a lesson
* While on the one hand, the army has been given freedom to take necessary steps, India has also conveyed its position clearly to China through diplomatic means
* India wants peace and friendship, but its sovereignty is supreme
* Whether it is deployment, action, counter-action...air, land or sea, whatever our

armed forces

have to do to protect our country they will do
* Today, we possess the capability that no one can eye even one inch of our land. India's armed forces have the capability to move into multiple sectors at one go
* Till now, those who were never questioned or stopped, now our jawans stop them and warn them at multiple sectors
* In the past few years, to protect our borders, we have given importance to infrastructure development to protect our borders. The requirements of our armed forces, be it fighter planes, advanced helicopters, missile defence systems, that too is being given importance
* The areas which were not really monitored earlier, even there our jawans are now able to monitor and respond well
* Entire country is hurt and angry at the steps taken by China at the LAC but our armed forces are leaving no stone unturned to protect the country
* All steps necessary for national security and construction of necessary infrastructure, will continue to be taken at a fast pace
