At the fulcrum of the violent face-off between Chinese and Indian forces at Galwan Valley along the disputed stretch of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh lies China’s aggressive expansionist polices. Claiming someone else’s territory as its own and using threat, coercion and violence to stake claim is at the core of China’s territorial designs.

And India isn’t the only country with which China is engaged in territorial disputes. There are over 20 countries that China is embroiled in with regards to territorial disputes though geographically it shares its border with only 14 nations.
