(FILES) This file photo taken on July 10, 2008 shows a Chinese soldier (L) next to an Indian soldier at the Nathu La border crossing between India and China in India's northeastern Sikkim state. A border standoff between Chinese and Indian troops on a remote Himalayan plateau has heightened long-standing tensions while ensnaring a tiny kingdom, Bhutan, between the two nuclear-armed powers. The row has festered for more than a month by the end of July 2017 as India and China refuse to back down in the distant but strategically key territory, reflecting the historic mistrust between the Asian giants. / AFP PHOTO / DIPTENDU DUTTA
