Shaksgam Valley

Recent reports have shown that China has breached roads into the Indian border at Aghil Pass and entered the lower Shaksgam valley of Kashmir just 48 kilometres away from Siachen.

The Indian government strongly condemned China's attempts to include the Shaksgam valley in its territory.

The Shaksgam valley is a strategically important region in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).

The Shaksgam valley in the trans-Karakoram tract, part of PoK, was handed over on a platter by Pakistan to China through an illegal border agreement on March 2, 1963.

India has never accepted the so-called China-Pakistan boundary agreement of 1963 through which Pakistan unlawfully attempted to cede the area to China.
