The Turing incident happened five months after China and India agreed to end a lengthy standoff at the Sikkim border that began in June last year, with Beijing abandoning plans to construct a road that had triggered the crisis.

 

The standoff began in mid-June after Chinese troops started building a road on the Doklam plateau. Indian soldiers rushed to stop that, triggering the worst military tension in decades with China.
