How to End a Border Dispute

So, earlier this week there was a face off between Indian and Chinese troops.  Apparently this happens sometimes, where India and China have different perceptions of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) between India and China, so both sides have patrols to their monitor their respective positions.

This particular face off ended nicely.  The Indian troops gave the Chinese troops a pack of rasgullas, soft, spongy balls of cottage cheese soaked in chilled sugar syrup.  The Chinese troops gave the Indian troops beer.

At first I thought the Indian troops won, but it turns out the beer was Budweiser, so now I think the Chinese troops got the better let's-not-start-a-war token.
