2 years of Sino-Indian Relations After Galwan conflict

The prevailing tensions on the Sino-Indian border are a sign of widespread strategic competition between the two Asian neighbours.

June 15 marked the second anniversary of the Sino-Indian conflict in the remote area of ​​Galwan in Ladakh on the Sino-Indian border. Two years after the clashes, which left 20 Indian soldiers and at least four Chinese soldiers dead, tensions on the border are real and the future trajectory of bilateral relations is uncertain. Talks between the two sides have continued through diplomacy and military channels, but a standoff and a resolution to release troops are unlikely in the near future. No progress has been made in reaching a mutually agreed arrangement to release troops at several points across the Line of Actual Control (LAC), including Patrol Point 15 near Kongka, Depsang Bulge in the Daulat Beg Oldi Sector and Charding Nalla Junction (CNJ).
