Author(s): Dr. Saroj Choudhary
Abstract: China–India relations, also called Sino-Indian relations or Indo-China relations, refer to the bilateral relationship between the People's Republic of China (PRC) and the Republic of India. China and India are separated by the Himalayas. China and India today share a border with Nepal and Bhutan acting as buffer states. Relations between contemporary China and India have been characterised by border disputes, resulting in three military conflicts — the Sino-Indian War of 1962, the Chola incident in 1967, and the 1987 Sino-Indian skirmish. India never suspected that China would ever launch an attack, but it did. India was attacked on October 20, 1962 in what famously came to be known as Sino-India war of 1962. 2003: Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee makes a landmark visit to China -- the first Indian head of government to visit China in ten years -- to strengthen relations. China acquires Top position in Asia for Nuclear Technology. If India enters to NSG will fluctuate Asian flow on Nuclear Technology, which will adversely effect on Chinese power full position on Asia. Should India get membership to the NSG, it can block Pakistan from its membership as entry into the grouping is by consensus only. This is one of the reasons why China is pushing to include Pakistan as well as pointing out that India as a non-signatory to the NPT cannot be a member. 8th BRICS Summit concluded with adaptation of Goa Declaration. Several steps have been taken to enhance bilateral issues between the two counterparts, one of them was -The summit “Building Responsive, Inclusive and Collective Solutions”. In nutshell smooth SINO-India relations are integral for the growth and development of India and China as well so as to present themselves supreme powers in the world.
