Sino-India Border War

Sheikh Mohd Arif

China and India are the two largest Asian countries, whose combined population of the 2 billion constitutes one third of the world’s total. Sharing a border some 2500 miles in length, they are separate by Himalayas in the eastern sector of Sino-Indian border and by the Karakoram in the western sector. Since 1913-14 Shimla conference, Sino-Indian border as a part of the issue of Tibet’s status has been a matter of dispute in the relations between the two countries. After India’s independence and the founding of the People’s Republic of China in the late 1940’s, the boundary problem became a major barrier to the development of Sino-India relations. Today, thus unresolved dispute remains at the core of their relations.
