India-China tension: Sumdorong Chu military standoff that took 9 years to defuse

The Ladakh standoff continues regardless of rounds of navy and diplomatic-level talks between the 2 nations. However, this isn’t the longest navy standoff between India and China. One notably India-China navy standoff took 9 years to defuse

ndia-China navy standoff in jap Ladakh has continued for over 130 days or 4 months. The Doklam standoff of 2017 had led to 70-odd days. This time round, each side have ramped up their presence within the excessive mountains and look ready for a protracted winter.

The Ladakh standoff continues regardless of rounds of navy and diplomatic-level talks between the 2 nations. However, this isn’t the longest navy standoff between India and China. One notably India-China navy standoff took 9 years to defuse.

It occurred within the Sumdorong Chu space of Arunachal Pradesh, which bought its statehood throughout and because of the India-China navy standoff that started in June 1986 and full disengagement may occur solely in 1995.

WHAT BROUGHT INDIA AND CHINA FACE-TO-FACE?

Since the 1962 warfare, India had resisted strengthening its place alongside the Line of Actual Control (LAC) and the worldwide border with China. There was a way within the Indian authorities that any navy buildup or infrastructural push within the border space may irk China.

This coverage of “neglect” modified after Indira Gandhi returned to energy in 1980. The earlier Janata Party authorities had already damaged the ice with its External Affairs Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee paying a go to to China, and emphasising the general growth of the 2 nations.

The Indira Gandhi authorities authorised an infrastructure and navy improve plan ready by then Army chief General KV Krishna Rao. The plan additionally included the sporadic deployment of the Indian armed forces alongside the LAC with China.

Another background to this plan was China’s push for infrastructure growth in border and LAC areas placing strain on Tawang, the Arunachal Pradesh district which China claimed as its personal.
