What are the points of contention between India and China?

India and China are two powerful nations in Indian Subcontinent. It is but natural for both of these to be envious towards each other. There are many points of contention between these two countries. Below we are listing some of the key points of contention between these two countries.

1. Tibet

The political asylum to His Holiness The Dalai Lama is a major point of contention between India and China. While China sees Tibet as its Integral part, the Tibetan leadership under Dalai Lama is fighting through peaceful means to get its due from the Chinese oppressors while running their Government in exile from Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh in India. This has led to the creation of tension between India and China and the situation is unlikely to change.

2. Border disputes

India and China share a vast border spread over 3488 km across the Himalayan range from Kashmir in the North to Arunachal Pradesh in the North East. This border has several pockets where disputes with China exist and despite numerous rounds of discussions and military and political level, the problem has still persisted.


3. Staple visa

China does not accept Arunachal Pradesh as Indian Territory and issues separate stapled visas to its citizens who wish to visit China. This has created a major political furor between the two countries. Recently, China issued such stapled visas to people from Jammu and Kashmir who intended to visit China.
