This allows the government to take action to promote coordination in border management and social and economic development. The law provides that the Chinese government will resolve border disputes with neighboring countries on the basis of equality, mutual trust and friendly dialogue. This will be the basis for a long-term discussion on the border issue and debate. China has not yet signed a border agreement with India and Bhutan.
The border between India and China covers an area of 3488 km². The border dispute with Bhutan is therefore in the 400 km long border area. Border disputes between India and China have been simmering since last year. 20 Indian soldiers were killed in a violent clash in the Galvantal.
