Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the status of the boundary dispute after 1899. China consistently avoided a boundary settlement without spelling out clearly its objections to any agreement. Hunza was exclusively under British control and had become a vassal of Kashmir when the Mir received a sanad from the Maharaja and agreed to bear allegiance to him and to pay an annual tribute. In the Aksai Chin the boundary remained undefined.

Keywords: boundary agreement; boundary settlement; Mir of Hunza; Aksai Chin
