Disputed areas of Jammu and Kashmir
China, India and Pakistan each claim all or part of the former state of Jammu and Kashmir. A cease-fire agreement in 1949 divided the region into 2 sectors: the eastern part administered by India as the state of Jammu and Kashmir and the western part administered by Pakistan as Azad (Free) Kashmir and the northern areas. In the 1950s, China occupied the northeast portion of Kashmir, known as Aksai Chin.
