The June 2020 clash erupted near Pangong Tso, a strategically important lake 14,000 feet (4,267 meters) above sea level, which stretches over an area stretching from the Indian province of Ladakh to China-controlled Tibet, in the greater Kashmir region of India. China and Pakistan claim territory.

In 1962, India and China went to war over this remote, inhospitable stretch of land, and eventually established the Line of Actual Control (LAC), the de facto boundary on both sides of the Panjung Tsu region. However, the two countries do not agree on the exact location of Latin America and the Caribbean and both regularly accuse the other of transgressing it, or seeking to expand their territories. Since then, they have had a history of mostly non-fatal quarrels over the location of the border.

In September, the two countries agreed to stop sending more troops to the border, after escalating tensions between New Delhi and Beijing. The situation was temporarily resolved, as the two sides engaged in several rounds of talks.
