Business Insight | What explains the India-China border tension?
While India and the rest of the world battle a pandemic which originated in China, the Chinese have opened a new battlefront involving troops and weapons along India’s contested border with Tibet. Indian and Chinese troops remained engaged in an eyeball-to-eyeball situation in several disputed areas along the Line of Actual Control in Eastern Ladakh. Chinese troops have crossed over onto the Indian side in Ladakh and started violent clashes in Sikkim. The key question is - why now? What is the message that China is seeking to send? What has motivated the Chinese to ratchet up the aggression despite confidence-building efforts and summit meetings between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping?
