    Harsha Gowda asked: Why China is not accepting McMahon Line with India, while the same has been accepted with Myanmar?

    M.S. Prathibha replies: The Burma-China Boundary Treaty of October 01, 1960 had settled the boundary dispute between the two countries. Though the agreed boundary mostly followed the McMahon Line, the Chinese called it as “customary boundary”. In other words, the Chinese never legally accepted the McMahon Line, but based their negotiations on what they termed as traditional boundary features. In this context, China’s refusal to agree on McMahon Line with India is more complicated than its negotiations with Myanmar.

India attaches highest priority to having good and friendly relations with China, and considers it as among its most important relationships. Various statements issued by the Indian leaders and the Ministry of External Affairs testify this assertion. However, at the same time, one cannot wish away the complexity of relationship between the two countries.
