Why China and India relationships cannot move forwards? China and USA, China and Japan, China and Russia all have historical conflicts for different reasons but they can turn the page on.

As a Pakistani me not expert on China India relations. Moreover, I have a deep realization that Pakistan couldn’t deliver according to her potentials and as a nation we failed to deliver. Although there Are some areas we made a headway but we couldn’t alleviate poverty, ignorance and other social evils from our society.

When Pakistan and India got freedom, China was a poor country. United India under the British despite imperial economic loot and plunder was a much progressive country. We had railways network and other industrial infrastructure which was not available in China. We had the greatest irrigation system, barrages and canals and our lands were very fertile. After gaining independence, till 1990, Pakistan was ahead of India in GDP growth. China remained behind till 1960s. Then China took a leap forward and went far ahead in the region. India also performed well after 1990 but there is no comparison between China and India. The relationship between India and China was never normal. Why China and India will remain in conflict for coming years as well, we will discuss later. Let us have some economic comparison first.





With a 20 trillion USD GDP, with exports around 2.4 trillion and imports around 1.9 trillion, China is second largest economy of the world. It was predicted that she will Not takeover USA till 2050. But China made a miraculous progress in all fields.

India is third largest economy PPP, fifth nominal. Here is a comparison of economies of China and India.

“China and India are the two emerging economies in the world. As of 2019, China and India is 2nd and 5th largest country of the world, respectively in nominal basis. On PPP basis, China is at 1st and India is at 3rd place. Both countries together share 19.46% and 27.18% of total global wealth in nominal and PPP terms, respectively. Among Asian countries, China and India together contribute more than half of Asia's GDP.

In 1987, GDP (Nominal) of both countries was almost equal. But in 2019, China's gdp is 4.78 times greater than India. On ppp basis, GDP of China is 2.38x of India. China crossed $1 trillion mark in 1998 while India crossed 9 year later in 2007 at exchange rate basis.





Both countries has been neck-to-neck in gdp per capita terms. As per both method, India was richer than China in 1990. Now in 2019, China is almost 4.61 times richer than India in nominal method and 2.30 times richer in ppp method. Per capita rank of China and India is 72th and 145th, resp, in nominal. Per capita rank of China and India is 75th and 126th, resp, in ppp.”

Why everlasting peace is not being reached between China and India needs a deeper analysis. India is always hegemonic towards her neighbours. Why? Because she thinks they succeeded British Imperialism. That imperialistic approach still persists. India expects her neighbours to behave like vassal states. Either Nepal or Bangladesh or Sri Lanka or even Pakistan, India wants they must accept her hegemony. Only Pakistan resisted and faced dire consequences. Now, Pakistan is continuously put in existential threat By India. Ultimately, Pakistan decided to get nuclear capability just to save herself from India. Likewise, while dealing with China, India always remained in that hegemonic frame of mind. This approach can’t work with a big country like China.

India invades his neighbors day by day. Let’s look at the history.

India is the top 1 threat to South Asia.

India invaded Goa in 1961.

India invaded China in 1962 but failed.

India invaded Sikkim in 1975.

India invaded Pakistan three times and split their country.

India invaded Sri Lanka in 1983.

India bully Nepal and Bhutan even after big earthquake. It’s totally cruel and brutal.

From my point of view, only China can keep South Asia from Nazi India.

I hope India could keep peace and stop invasion. That will help China and India relationships.

india has an imaginary image of itself - it thinks it is an elephant while it is only a mouse

It just has the support of USA so it thinks it can do whatever it wants with that support and USA is also enjoying the show because it is funny to watch M0doi do gimmicks with his citizens and how blindly they seem to follow him.

its fun to watch these ignorant idiots dance to his tunes while thousands of people are dying in India because of his lack of action

A $400 Billion China - Iran deal: Where does it leave the Chabahar project?

Reportedly, China is ready to invest across the Iranian economy. In return, Beijing could walk away with a steady supply of Iranian oil at a heavily discounted rate. What does it mean for India's Chabahar project?

Destabilized by sanctions and the maximum pressure from the Donald Trump administration has lead to steep economic decline in Iran.

With limited options and a time ticking bomb for economic collapse, Tehran has decided to go all out with China to ink a strategic deal worth $400 Billion dollars for a 25 years strategic partnership. The marriage between Iran and China will leave Washington with limited options to effectively punish Iran. This is happening because China sees a possible decoupling between the the US and China

The border dispute though should not define the long term relationships of the two nation, is in fact doing the same. China instead of serving the interest of its neighbor, has been doing the same with its distant friends.

India remembers 1962 India China conflict, also 2018 Doklam, and 2020 Galvan Valley incidents

After undergoing excruciating moments, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi had a telephonic conversation with his Indian counterpart to show that China would use diplomatic talks in stead of military means to resolve the border conflict. Wang suggested that China and India should strengthen communication and coordination on properly addressing the border situation and jointly maintain the peace and tranquility in border areas.

After such a long and culturally embellished history of this relationship, trust should not be a factor today in 2020.

But trust is the most important element that might make or break this relationship for a long, long time to come. This won’t be decades, and India is in no mood to forget the 1962 betrayal

China is an expansionist power, and India is a development oriented partnership power. The two nations have different ambitions. India never questioned China’s hegemony in the East China Sea or the South China sea, where China has antagonised a lot of nations, and now India is sending very clear messages that the Malacca Strait may be a showdown point if push comes to shove.

India has decoupled emotion from a relationship for the first time in Indian history. Even with India’s gross disagreements with Pakistan, there is always a fig leaf somewhere. This is because we know the people of Pakistan aren’t that different from Indian people, and there are people there that want the same things as us Indians.

With China, their deep state controls so much that we have very poor soft power extensions with its people. There is no emotional bond with China. This is not India’s fault and it is not the fault of Chinese people’s either, but this is reality

But most tellingly, 59% of Indians want war with China to settle whatever disputes we have currently, according to a Mood of the Nation survey. 59%!! India is no longer that peaceful, peace promoting, all bearing nation anymore.






最能说明问题的是,根据国家情绪调查,59%的印度人希望与中国开战,解决当前的争端。59% ! !印度不再是一个和平、促进和平、承担责任的国家。
