China has been trying to increase its military strength on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) since Doklam dispute. In fact, China has been working towards strengthening its preparedness in view of the situation of military confrontation since the Doklam dispute. 

According to the information received from the sources, China has built a military camp in the lowland areas from Ladakh to Arunachal Pradesh. The army of India and China have been face to face from laat few months.

The sourness of relations between India and China started from 1962. But, when the Doklam dispute started in the year 2017, the relationship between India and China started getting tense. Doklam is a disputed territory on which both China and Bhutan countries claim their claim. India is in favor of Bhutan, from a strategic point of view this area is very important for India.

When China started road construction in this area in 2017, the Indian Army stopped the road construction work of China. After that, the forces of both the countries of India and China remained face to face for two and a half months. A war-like situation was created between the two countries. 

However, the latest deadlock was ended by negotiations. But the relationship between the two countries remained intact.

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said that India is in the “most difficult phase with China in the last 30-40 years”.

Jaishankar referred to the movement of the Chinese army in the Galvan valley in which 20 Indian soldiers were martyred. He said, “Today we are probably in the most difficult phase of relations with China, at least in the period of 30 to 40 years, maybe more than that.”
