Border Defence Cooperation Agreement

Given that China and India have not agreed on an effective line of control (LAC), sporadic incidents of border crossings are increasingly becoming a secret Chinese strategy to assert their claims in the western sector of India, particularly in northeastern Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh. , in the eastern sector. The LAC is not physically demarcated on the ground or in military maps, and there are persistent resistances and official refusals from China to show its version of the LAC in India – suggesting a greater trick that is gradually building a case for its claims in eastern Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh. In his remarks following his meeting with Li, Mr. Singh said that “peace and calm at our borders must remain the basis for growth in India-China relations, even as we continue negotiations towards a fair, reasonable and mutually acceptable settlement of the India-China border. That will be our strategic scale. This language is refreshing and effective and is a recognition of the criticism leveled against him and his government for ignoring China`s provocations in the interest of maintaining trade relations. India and China present a particular case of “limited cooperation” where the convergence of their economic interests tends to mask their strategic differences. But these differences, the main issue of which is territorial and cross-border conflict, still have the potential to end ties. This was demonstrated in April 2013, when a force contingent of the People`s Liberation Army of China (PLA) penetrated deep into the Depsang Plateau, east of Von Ladakhs, a region of Jammu and Kashmir that shares a border with China. The troops pitched tents on Indian territory, violated previous confidence-building measures and pushed India into a diplomatic and military scam. The agreement is expected to improve communication between the two military personnel. Articles VI, VII and VIII explicitly describe dispute resolution procedures in “areas where there is no common understanding of the effective line of control.” The aim is to question the usefulness of the 1993 agreement.
