India–China Boundary Problem 1846–1947

This chapter details the events that were initiated by China to claim Aksai Chin, a region situated east of Ladakh, marked within British territory in earlier surveys. China's claim provided a good opportunity for reviving the proposal of a Joint Commission. But London decided in June 1896 that it was ‘impolitic’ to raise the matter. By 1898, it was decided that the time had come to consider what line of frontier to adopt for endorsement by London and acceptance by Peking. The India Office and the Foreign Office responded to the Government of India's pleas for a definition of India's northern boundary.

Keywords:   British territory, Ladakh, Joint Commission, Aksai Chin
