Who is to blame for violence at the India-Chinese border?

Fighting between Chinese and India troops in the Himalayas has recently left twenty Indian troops dead, and an undisclosed number of Chinese “casualties”. This is thought to be the deadliest clash between the two countries since 1975, when Chinese officers ambushed patrolling Assam soldiers in Arunachal Pradesh, India and killed four of them. Over the next few decades however the two countries have developed closer ties, especially through trade, and Sino-Indo relations remarkably improved, until recently. Who is responsible for China and India’s border flare up? What does this mean for wider relations between the two countries? theprint.in/india/1975-arunachal-ambush-the-last-time-indian-soldiers-died-in-clash-with-china-at-lac/442674

The latest clash between China and India caused over long standing border disputes is widely seen to be a direct reaction to India’s revoking of Kashmir’s autonomy in 2019 by repealing Article 370 of the Indian constitution. India's move here potentially gives them free reign to impose demographic shifting policies, which may only prove to further destabilise the region, and has already seen them militarise Kashmir even more heavily than before. Furthermore India has engaged in building infrastructure along the border, only further escalating the situation. While Indian citizens are protesting and calling for a boycott of Chinese products, experts believe that India will address Chinese border disputes by reaching out through the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (QSD or Quad), an informal security forum between India, Japan, Australia and the United States.
