Back in May 20 Indian soldiers were killed in border clashes with their Chinese counterparts which were fought with metal bars, rocks and clubs. An unconfirmed number of Chinese troops are also believed to have died in the hand-to-hand fighting. However according to India’s The Print news service, a “large concentration” of Chinese troops has gathered in the Akasi Chin border region. Indian military sources told the service this was “making the Indian Army cautious about the disengagement process”. They added: “There is a fear that the People's Liberation Army (PLA) is intentionally delaying the disengagement process to sustain it till winter and then open a new front, possibly in the Northeast.” China withdrew troops from the contested Ladakh area following May’s deadly border clash, but the region remains tense.

The Indian Government responded by banning a number of Chinese apps, including TikTok, on national security grounds. Simon Tack, an analysis from the US Stratfor group, emphasised how important the region is for China. Speaking to the New Zealand Herald he said: “Controlling the source and course of rivers that run from Ladakh also provides a great deal of environmental security for China, as the Himalayan mountains in the region are an important source of water to the areas below them on either side.“China initially launched its military push into Ladakh in May, when the region's snow- and ice-covered valleys had just started to thaw.
