China is continuously developing infrastructure in the disputed Aksai Chin area. Now a report has revealed that China has constructed many roads, posts in Aksai Chin. Along with this, modern camps and heliports are being built for Chinese soldiers. Britain-based think tank Chatham House has prepared this report by analyzing satellite images for six months from October 2022. Apart from this, many other facts were also studied.

Shocking revelation in the report

Chatham House, also known as the Royal Institute of International Affairs, has claimed in its report that China has made tremendous development in its infrastructure along the border. Satellite photographs have shown that roads, posts, modern waterproof camps, parking areas, solar panels, heliports have been constructed in Aksai Chin. 18 hangars and a small runway have also been built in the heliport. It is believed that this runway has been made for the flight of drones.

It is visible in the satellite pictures that the Chinese army has developed a complete system for the convenience of its soldiers stationed in the Aksai Chin area. Explain that India considers Aksai Chin area as a part of Ladakh. At the same time, China considers Aksai Chin as part of its Xinjiang and Tibet. In the 1962 war, China captured Aksai Chin. The Galvan Valley is located near Aksai Chin, where 20 Indian soldiers were killed in a violent clash between the soldiers of India and China in the year 2020, while China claimed the death of four of its soldiers.

Chinese army increasing its influence in Depsang

The report claimed that patrolling by Chinese soldiers has increased in Depsang as well. It is believed that this is being done with the aim of putting pressure on Indian operations at Daulat Beg Oldi airstrip in Depsang. Along with this, Chinese posts are also visible in Raki Nala area present in Depsang itself. It is believed that these posts have been established with the aim of stopping the patrolling of Indian soldiers in this area.
