SOUTH ASIA:

  • China has begun pulling back troops from along its contested border with India. This comes after weeks of tensions between the Asian nations following their worst border skirmish in more than five decades.

The recent hostility that erupted between two of the world’s biggest oil importers China and India, could increase security threats along the second most important oil chokepoint in the world, the Strait of Malacca. This vital strait connects the Indian Ocean with the Pacific Ocean through the South China Sea and is the shortest oil shipping route from oil suppliers in the Middle East to the Asian markets such as China, Japan, and South Korea.
