Map of the Kashmir region, showing the traditional boundary claimed by the former princely state of Jammu and Kashmir and the disputed areas claimed by India, Pakistan and China.
The 1972 Line of Control currently marks the boundary between Indian and Pakistani administered territory, and the Line of Actual Control marks the current boundary between Chinese and Indian administered territory.
The term Kashmir is sometimes used to refer to the whole of the former princely state of Jammu and Kashmir, but applies more precisely to the Vale of Kashmir and its surroundings.
