China-Pakistan Relations and Implications for India

Miss Arpita Roy


Pakistan is a country in South Asia which got independence on 14 August 1947 after partition of British India. Since independence India and Pakistan have been two hostile neighbors and they fought many wars mainly on Kashmir issue. Apart from Kashmir issue India and Pakistan have conflict on several other issues such as terrorism, sharing of Indus river water etc. China is another hostile neighbor of India and it wants to counter India in the region by increasing its influence in India’s neighborhood. It is in this regard China has been maintaining very good relations with Pakistan for a long time and this was witnessed when China helped Pakistan in 1965 and 1999 wars with India. Besides, China has also helped Pakistan to become a nuclear power. China also helps Pakistan by providing support on many issues in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) such as Kashmir issue, issue of terrorism etc. All these make it clear that the China-Pakistan nexus has great implications over the security and other aspects of India. It is in this backdrop the present study is an attempt to discuss China-Pakistan relationship in modern times. The study also examines implications of the China-Pakistan nexus on India.
