The China-Pakistan strategic relationship has been one of the most enduring ones in world politics, often times leading to consequences for India’s foreign policy. Take, for example, the numerous cases of China’s repeated attempts to support Pakistan in international forums against India’s interests. Beijing and Islamabad also jointly coordinate their military and defence strategies. Do the recent border clashes between India & China and the continuing cross-border tensions with Pakistan reveal anything about the China-Pakistan factor in India’s strategic calculations?
In the first episode of this series, we talk about the China-Pakistan nexus and its implications for India. We are joined by Dr. Ashok K. Behuria, who is a Senior Fellow and Coordinator of the South Asia Centre at Manohar Parrikar Institute of Defence Studies and Analyses and Andrew Small, who is a Senior TransAtlantic Fellow with the Asia program at the German Marshall Fund of the United States and a Non-Resident senior policy fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations.
I’m Prarthana Puthran, and along with Vignesh, Co-Founder of The Bridge Project, we talk to Dr. Ashok K. Behuria and Andrew Small about the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, strategic military coordination, growing nuclear alliance between the two countries and its implications for India.
