McMohan Line : Disputed Agenda Between India and China

"`The McMohan Line' is a line agreed to by Britain and Tibet as part of the Simla Accord a treaty signed in 1914. It is the effective boundary between China and India, although its legal status is disputed by the Chinese government. The McMahon Line boundary dispute is at the heart of relations between China. China has land and sea boundary issues with 14 neighbors, mostly for historical reasons. The Chinese have two major claims on what India deems its own territory. One claim, in the western sector, is on Aksai Chin in the northeastern section of Ladakh District in Jammu and Kashmir. The other claim is in the eastern sector over a region included in the British-designated North-East Frontier Agency, the disputed part of which India renamed Arunachal Pradesh and made a state. In the fight over these areas in 1962, the well-trained and well-armed troops of the Chinese People's Liberation Army overpowered the illequipped Indian troops, who had been properly acclimatized to fighting at high altitudes. In 1913-14, representative of Britain, China and Tibet attended a conference in Simla, India and drew up an agreement concerning Tibet's status and borders. The McMohan Line, a proposed boundary between Tibet and India for the eastern sector, was drawn by British negotiator Henry McMahon on a map attached to the agreement. All three representatives initiated the agreement, but Beijing soon objected to the proposed Sino-Tibet boundary and repudiated the agreement, refusing to sign the final, more detailed map. After approving a note which stated that China could not enjoy rights under the agreement unless she ratified it, the British and Tibetan negotiators signed the Simla Convention and more detailed map as a bilateral accord. Neville Maxwell states that Mcmohan had been instructed not to sign bilaterally with Tibetans if China refused, but he did so without Chinese representative present and then kept the declaration secret. This book debunks many notions about the boundary dispute and conflict, delves deep into its different aspects to give a blow by blow account of as to how and why a conflict arose over the boundary."
