Ladakh standoff between India and China

Ladakh standoff between India and China

Recently, talks between senior military commanders of India and China to find a solution to the 17-month-old standoff in the mountainous regions of eastern Ladakh have turned out to be in vain.

The 13th round of talks held on the Chinese side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) was aimed at discussing the withdrawal of troops from the Hot Springs area of ​​eastern Ladakh.

The Galwan Valley, Gogra Post and the northern and southern banks of Pangongtso were other points of interaction.

India-China border dispute

The border between India and China is not completely clearly demarcated. With some stretches of 3,488 km in length, the two sides do not mutually agree on the Line of Actual Control (LAC).

The border is divided into three sections namely Western, Central and Eastern

  • Western Section: This is related to the Johnson Line proposed by the British in the 1880s. It placed Aksai Chin under the then princely state of Jammu and Kashmir. However, China does not accept the Johnson Line.
  • Middle section: This is the only area where India and China have exchanged maps and they almost agree on it.
  • Eastern Section: The disputed boundary line is located above the McMahon Line.
