China’s Road-Building Near Siachen Raises Strategic Concerns

China’s construction of a road near the Siachen Glacier has raised strategic concerns for India. The road, passing through Aghil Pass and extending into the Shaksgam Valley, is less than 30 miles from Siachen, prompting worries about potential military threats from China and Pakistan. India’s Ministry of External Affairs has formally protested, reiterating that it does not recognize the 1963 border agreement that ceded the Shaksgam Valley to China. This development highlights China’s growing infrastructure capabilities in challenging terrains and its potential strategic intentions to enhance connectivity through the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). Indian defense experts emphasize the need for vigilance and continued diplomatic efforts to address these concerns.
