The test of wills between India and China continues, as both nations are once again pointing the finger at one another over military movements along their respective border. The Indian government says Chinese troops are carrying out ‘provocative military movements to change the status quo.’ Chinese state media makes similar claims about India.

So far, no physical clashes have taken place.
