NEW DELHI: It’s well known that India and China have differing perceptions about where the Line of Actual Control (LAC) lies. But amid the ongoing standoff in eastern Ladakh, China has renewed a claim it made over 60 years ago—that it is following the line put forth by its then premier Zhou Enlai in 1959. India had rejected China’s claim then, calling it unilateral and retains the same position even now. So what’s at the heart of the boundary dispute? In this episode of ‘Simply Nitin’, StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale describes the issue, its historical context and how China has repeatedly changed its stance.
