There is a 3488 km border dispute between India and China along the LAC. China’s new law could have a further impact on this border dispute.
Listen to the news
What the new law in China is saying
China calls the law non-violence for the sake of national sovereignty and territorial integrity. As part of this, China will increase security arrangements along the border. In addition to economic and social development in these areas, government areas and infrastructure will also be developed. There will be coordination between border security and economic and social for people to live and work in border areas. The law will come into force from January 1 next year.
The India border dispute is having an impact
India and China have a long-running border dispute. The LAC agreement between the two countries has not yet been finalized. Under such circumstances, there is often a tense atmosphere between India and China. Troops from the two countries have clashed several times in the Ladakh sector and there have been violent clashes along the border. In such a situation, the new law passed by China will affect the India-China border agreement and create new conflict.
There is a border dispute between India and Bhutan
China has more border disputes than India and Bhutan. China has not yet finalized a border agreement with the two countries. India and China have a 3488 km border dispute over the LAC, while Bhutan has a nearly 400 km dispute. China has resolved border disputes with nearly 12 countries.
