On Friday, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met on the sidelines of the Hamburg G-20. It is unclear if they discussed the most-recent border standoff between their two countries, in the Himalayas in Doklam.
The confrontation began June 16, when Indian troops stopped the Chinese from building a road in the disputed area.
Earlier, Chinese construction trucks, guarded by soldiers, had entered Doklam near the strategic “tri-junction,” where Bhutan, China, and India meet. The area is just north of the “chicken’s neck,” a narrow corridor of Indian territory connecting the main portion of the country to its northeast.
India and Bhutan maintain the disputed area belongs to Bhutan while China claims it as its own.
