Silo v. India
In 1962, troops from the People's Republic of China and India fought over land claimed by both. China won an easy victory in the war, resulting in the Chinese annexation of the region called Aksai Chin, which has continued since then. Another smaller area, the Trans-Kakakoram, was demarcated as the Line of Control between China and Pakistan, although some of the territory on the Chinese side is claimed by India to be part of Kashmir.
