In a forceful statement, China accused the Indian army of crossing its territory and “blocking” its patrols and “trying to unilaterally change the state” on the current line of control (LAC) between the two countries of Sikkim and Ladakh.

It could be the most serious event since the Doklam shock in 2017. In the statement, Beijing said that “the Indian army crossed the line across the western section of the Sino-Indian border and the Sikkim section for entering Chinese territory.”
Still on the subject of territorial conflicts, Nepal has officially published a new political map of the country showing the regions of Kalapani, Limpiyadhura and Lipulekh of Uttarakhand as part of its sovereign territory. Less than a fortnight has passed since India announced the construction of a road to the Lipulekh Pass, which will reduce travel time to the Manasarovar pilgrimage center in Tibet. Nepal reacted angrily, saying the area belongs to Kathmandu. Launching the card at a press conference, Minister of Land Administration Padma Kumari Aryal said that Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli’s government was determined to protect the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. “This is a historic moment of happiness for the Nepalese people. The government will not allow the erosion of the self-esteem of our people. Nepal will publish the new map and integrate it into textbooks,” said Ayal. “We look forward to engaging in diplomatic negotiations with the friendly nation of India on land claims,” he added.
