India-China LAC Standoff
Mediate Between India And China: India is facing another problem on top of coronavirus, which is showing no signs of slowing. This other problem is China. China has been trying to build an upper hand on large parts of Galwan Valley and includes some area of Ladakh. Galwan Valley is an area of conflict among the two nations, and now the Chinese troops have entered into the Indian territory. They refuse to back off from their positions, which has led to tension between the two nations in LAC (Line of Actual Control).
China is in no mood to give away their positions even after constant dialogue between the two nations. China has deployed more troops to the areas for backup in case things go out of proportion. They have also try to leverage the temporary infrastructure as a part of its preparation.
