Recent satellite imagery has shown that China is expanding into Bhutan's territory while both countries are engaged in negotiations to redraw the disputed Bhutan-China border. Satellite images by the United States (US)-based Maxar Technologies revealed a significant increase in China's presence in northern Bhutan's Jakarlung Valley over the past two years. Experts claimed that China is unilaterally seizing Bhutan's territory and establishing villages, military barracks, and outposts.
