India–China Boundary Problem 1846–1947

A.G. Noorani

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews the status of India's boundaries as of 15 August 1947. It also considers propositions, based on the history of boundary-making, that are of direct relevance to the policies pursued by India and China after 1947. It discusses the Ladakh–Tibet Treaty of 1842; the undefined Karakoram and the Kuen Lun boundary; the northern and eastern boundary of Kashmir that was not only undemarcated on the ground but also undefined by a formal treaty or even an informal understanding; and China's refusal to occupy an area that would create a buffer between India and expansionist Russia.

Keywords:   India, Kashmir, Ladakh-Tibet Treaty, Karakoram, Kuen Lun, territory
