Six Decades After The War, Chinese Border Aggression Persists
NEW DELHI: Sixty years ago, the Chinese assault on India that played out as a month-long war caught India unawares. It came at a time the world’s gaze was on the Cuban missile crisis. The war ended with a ceasefire declared by China. Ever since, China has kept poking along the boundary, displaying aggressive intent from time to time. The latest provocation that came in 2020 is yet to be fully resolved. In this episode of ‘Ask Nitin’, StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale takes a look back at 1962, what has changed since then and why the vexed border issue remains unresolved.
