Relations between India and China have been tense since the military standoff in Ladakh’s Galwan Valley in 2020. Although several rounds of military talks have taken place between the two sides for the disengagement process, the border dispute at places like Depsang and Demchok remains unresolved. Before the clashes in the Galwan Valley, Indian and Chinese troops also faced off in 2017 on the Doklam plateau, which is claimed by both China and Bhutan. The two-month long military standoff began when China started building a road in the disputed area of Doklam. After Bhutan called New Delhi for help, Indian troops were deployed to handle the issue, leading to controversy. However, after weeks of diplomatic talks, the standoff ended, with both sides promising to disengage and Beijing taking necessary steps in its military deployment.
