Explain with reason whether the following statement is true or false.
Pandit Nehru contributed towards improving Sino-Indian relations.
Pandit Nehru played an active role in contributing to improving Sino-Indian relations. He made an earnest effort in enhancing relationships with China for seven years from 1949 to 1955. With mutual support, he strengthened the Sino-Indian relations in various areas of regional, national, and international importance.
Unfortunately, the relationship did not last long and the two countries fought an intense border war for a month in 1962. This put an end to both Sino-Indian relations and the commitment Nehru had towards Asian internationalism.
