The Strategic Stasis in the India-China Relationship

A confusing and diffi cult question no doubt, but one which calls for an analysis of the contradictions that underlie India-China relations. This relationship is scrutinised in the context of the Chinese Premier Li Keqiang's recent state visit that could have been marred by the earlier row over the Chinese "incursion" in Ladakh, but for an understanding that the relationship would not be made hostage to the boundary dispute.
