In a recent escalation of tensions, India has lodged a strong diplomatic protest against China’s release of a new map that asserts territorial claims over Indian land.

The Indian foreign ministry spokesperson expressed vehement rejection of these claims, emphasizing their lack of factual foundation.

The tensions between India and China have persisted since a deadly clash between their soldiers in June 2020. Which resulted in casualties on both sides.

During the recent BRICS summit in Johannesburg, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi engaged in discussions with China’s President Xi Jinping, highlighting concerns about the ongoing border standoff.

The release of China’s controversial map and India’s swift protest have once again drawn attention to the complex and sensitive nature of the Indo-China border dispute.
