**This event will premiere on this page at 12:00 p.m. EDT, Tuesday, June 23.**

Join Hudson Institute for a discussion on the recent deadly clash between India and China along their disputed Himalayan border. Hudson Director for South and Central Asia Husain Haqqani will moderate the event.

While the 2,167-mile-long mountainous border has periodically seen conflict between the two nuclear-armed neighbors, the current standoff has been the most violent in over a half-century. With China's recent power grabs in Hong Kong, its economic threats toward Australia, and its growing belligerence toward South East Asia, Japan, and Taiwan, how do the recent skirmishes connect to China's attempts at strengthening its global posture? Is the current standoff with India part of China's broader strategy? Does the power competition between the United States and China factor into the clash? How should the United States seize the moment to strengthen its partnership with India?

Our experts will address these and other elements of the on-going tension between the world's two most populous countries.
