In some cases, where the boundary is not demarcated, such as the Taiwan Strait, and Kashmir, involved parties define a line of control that serves as the "de facto" international border.

  • The term border dispute (or border conflict) applies only to cases where a limit territory bordering more than one state.

  • Occupied territories in general are regions distinct from the recognized territory of a sovereign state but which it controls, especially with military forces.
