On Sunday, The Indian Army said that its soldiers were engaged during a face-off with Chinese troops along the border in northern Sikkim over undemarcated boundary issues between the 2 countries, which involved “aggressive behaviour and minor injuries on both sides”.

The last major stand-off between the 2 sides was at Doklam in 2017 which continued for 73 days.

According to the Indian Army, “temporary and short duration face-offs occur as boundaries aren’t resolved”(i.e. the undemarcated Sino-India border which covers the 3,488-km-long Line of Actual Control is a legacy of the 1962 war).
China claims Arunachal Pradesh to be a neighborhood of southern Tibet.
