India and China have shared historical ties and, as immediate neighbours, have seen many ups and downs in their relations. As a result, bilateral ties between the two countries are not only of concern for the countries in question, but are under the scanner from the other countries in the vicinity as well as the world, as any skirmish between the two has a direct impact not only on the region and the larger geopolitics of the world.
