As India plans to equip its troops along the Chinese border with the BrahMos missile, China’s Defense Ministry has called for calm.
A long term territorial dispute between Beijing and New Delhi has been brewing along the Tibetan border. China lays claim to roughly 35,000 square miles ruled by India, while India says that China is currently occupying 14,600 square miles of its territory.
To assert its own claims, New Delhi plans to deploy advanced BrahMos cruise missiles to the region. Introduced in 2007, the projectile is one of India’s most versatile weapons, capable of being launched from ships, submarines, aircraft, or land.
