    Tensions along the disputed India-China border seem to be getting worse, three months after their deadliest confrontation in decades. The Asian giants accused each other this week of sending soldiers into the other's territory and fired warning shots for the first time in 45 years, raising the specter of full-scale military conflict. Their foreign ministers are expected to discuss the simmering dispute in Moscow on Thursday on the sidelines of a regional security and economic meeting.

    Customs officials at major Indian ports are holding back imports coming from China, Indian government and industry sources told Reuters on Wednesday. Among the goods held back are products from U.S. companies, including Apple, Dell, Cisco, and Ford Motor Company. Although no official Indian government notice has been issued confirming the trade disruption, Reuters reports that a lobby group representing U.S. firms known as the U.S.-India Strategic Partnership Forum addressed the holding of imports from China in a letter to India’s commerce ministry dated June 23. “Authorities have abruptly halted the clearance of industry consignments coming in from China (and perhaps other destinations) at most major ports and airports,” the lobby group said in the letter, reportedly seen by Reuters. On Wednesday, the India Cellular and Electronics Association (ICEA) revealed its members were recently told that airports in the cities of Delhi, Mumbai, and Chennai would have a “new examination procedure for all consignments coming from China,” Indian news site WION reported. The trade impediments come amid heightened tensions between India and China. Last week, a violent military conflict erupted between the two countries’...

Chinese forces have held onto a chunk of land covering several square miles at the mouth of the Galwan valley - following the deadly brawl on June 15. The bloody violence saw 500 soldiers fighting with spiked clubs in a clash that left at least 20 Indian soldiers dead.

    VIDEO2:0302:03India's recent border clash with China a 'turning point' in the bilateral relationshipStreet Signs Asia The border clash between India and China that killed 20 Indian soldiers is going to be a "turning point" in bilateral relations between the two Asian giants, a former Indian ambassador to China told CNBC.  A "violent face-off" in the Himalayas occurred Monday last week along the border in the Galwan Valley in Ladakh, where soldiers from India and China have been locked in a standoff since May. While India said both sides suffered casualties, China did not disclose how many of its soldiers died during the clash. The encounter sparked concern and soured public sentiment even as the two nuclear powers moved to deescalate tensions. "This is definitely a turning point in the bilateral relations, but I wouldn't call it a breaking point," said Nirupama Rao, who served as India's ambassador to China between 2006 to 2009.  Speaking to CNBC's "Street Signs" on Wednesday, she said there were indications that both countries had a constructive discussion and attempted to disengage from the disputed areas. Still, she said,...
    A second agreement this month has been struck between Indian and Chinese security forces to alleviate growing tensions along their disputed border in the Himalayan mountains. The 11-hour meeting Monday was described by an unnamed top Indian official as “cordial, positive and constructive,” according to the Wall Street Journal (WSJ), adding that both sides agreed to disengage from the areas of greatest friction. No information has been released by either side regarding details of the withdrawal. Experts believe this latest round of talks is a positive sign of declining mistrust between the nuclear-armed neighbors that have been building up troops and artillery since early May in the Ladakh region, and further north along the Line of Actual Control, high in the Himalayas. “The two sides had a frank and in-depth exchange of views on the outstanding issues of the current border control, and agreed to take necessary measures to cool down the situation,” China Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told the WSJ.

    MOSCOW – Russia will not be stepping in to mediate between China and India following a deadly border clash in the Himalayas, the country's foreign minister said Tuesday. Sergey Lavrov said after a video call with his Chinese and Indian counterparts that Beijing and New Delhi don't need outside assistance to settle their differences. “We never had a goal to help India and China develop their bilateral ties,” Lavrov said in a call with reporters. “India and China have every opportunity to tackle and solve any problems in relations between them.” Lavrov spoke to Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and Indian Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar in the wake of last week's clashes which saw 20 Indian soldiers die. China has not released any information on its casualties. Soldiers brawled with clubs, rocks and their fists in the thin air at 4,270 meters (14,000 feet) above sea level. A previous agreement in the border dispute bans the use of firearms. The confrontation in the Galwan Valley, part of the disputed Ladakh region along the Himalayan frontier, was the deadliest between...
    Initial reports on the number of soldiers who were killed in a border battle this week between India and communist China suggested that several soldiers were killed. However, as more information becomes available it appears as though dozens of soldiers may have been killed on both sides. The New York Times was one of the first media outlets to report on the skirmish and said that three Indian soldiers were killed. Reuters reported that, according to an Indian Army official, there were casualties on both sides. U.S. News & World Report later reported that Indian government officials had told a local publication that 20 Indian soldiers had died in the fighting and that somewhere between 35 and 43 Chinese soldiers were also killed U.S. News & World Report reported: American intelligence believes 35 Chinese troops died, including one senior officer, a source familiar with that assessment tells U.S. News. The incident took place during a meeting in the mountainous region between the two sides – both of which had agreed to disarm – to determine how the two militaries would...
    Hong Kong (CNN)China and India's latest border dispute may have mainly involved scuffles and troop maneuvers on the ground, but it has been all-out war in the respective countries' media. Tensions have been growing in the Himalayas along one of the world's longest land borders, with New Delhi and Beijing both accusing the other of overstepping the Line of Actual Control (LAC) that separates the two. The territory has long been disputed, erupting into numerous minor conflicts and diplomatic spats since a bloody war between the countries in 1962. On Saturday, military leaders met at the border to "peacefully resolve the situation in the border areas," according to a statement from India's foreign ministry. Even today, just what occurred on the ground in the highly militarized region remains unclear -- in part because the main body of this distinctly 21st-century conflict has so far mostly played out through propaganda, strategic leaks and aggressive posturing in the media. Ahead of Saturday's meeting, Chinese broadcasters aired footage of People's Liberation Army (PLA) maneuvers in the region -- complete with planes and trucks...

    Additional troops have reportedly arrived at the contested, high-altitude border between China and India, even as both sides downplayed reports of tensions spilling over into violence there. Asked Monday about Indian Defense Minister Rajnath Singh's promise that New Delhi would not allow its "pride to be hurt" at the disputed boundary between India-controlled Ladakh and China-administered Aksai Chin, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said Beijing has upheld its bilateral obligations and "is committed to safeguarding national territorial sovereignty and security and maintaining peace and stability in the border area between China and India." "Currently the overall situation along the border is stable and controllable.
