While global attention has been focused on rising tensions between China and Taiwan, another alarming clash could boil.
When tensions between China and Taiwan reached record highs, another battlefield quietly emerged, following reports of an intensifying conflict between the communist superpower and India.
For decades, the two countries clashed in areas along the Himalayan border and culminated in the war in 1962, resulting in the establishment of the Line of Actual Control (LAC).
The repellent area is in the western part of the Gallowan Valley in the Ladakh region near Tibet, but countries disagree on the exact location and accuse them of violating each other on a regular basis.

“But India still insists on unreasonable and unrealistic demands, making negotiations more difficult.”
Chinese Communist Party mouthpiece Global Times In a bitter article following a new controversy, India accused India of “causing a new incident along the eastern border.”
“Chinese experts say China should not only refuse to succumb to India’s arrogant demands at the negotiating table, but also prepare to protect itself from the new Indian military aggression, in a new conflict. We warned about the risks, “the report said.
another Global Times An article on Monday reported that China was “preparing for future conflicts” over LAC.
