Our analysts also point to powerful Chinese ties with Pakistan, which has actually leased parts of Gilgit Baltistan,in the Northern Areas of Kashmir, to China. "China has already occupied a part of Gilgit Baltistan, a little part of Hunza is under its control and Aksai Chin is also occupied," Wajahat Hassan Khan, the chief of the Gilgit Baltistan National Alliance told ANI over phone recently.
On the flip side, the Chinese, while arming Pakistan with missiles and nuclear weapons, has studiously avoided getting directly involved in our wars with Pakistan. But that’s no guarantee that they won’t.
India has water sharing treaties with all its neighbours - Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Myanmar...all except China.
