The Border Dispute with China
The Sino-Indian border incidents which occurred during the summer of 1959 led to the publication ofa series of White Papers containing the official correspondence between the two countries. Not only did they reveal that Chinese intrusions into the north-eastern corner of Ladakh had been discovered prior to July, 19582 and the construction of a motor road as part of the Sinkiang-Tibet highway three months later,3 but they also contained an exchange of notes concerning the disputed grazing grounds of Bara Hoti, in which each side kept referring to the principles ofPanchshcel from July, 1954 onwards. Three notes are dated shortly after Chou En-lai’s visit to New Delhi, but prior to the Bandung Conference.4
