China to Explore Trilateral Security Cooperation with India, Pakistan
Jul 21, 2014

China is reportedly keen to explore a trilateral security cooperation with neighbouring countries India and Pakistan. An affiliate of the ruling Communist Party of China's (CPC) People's Daily publication group, paid a visit to Pakistan and sought views from scholars of Islamabad Institute of Strategic Studies (IISS) on a likely India-China-Pakistan trilateral cooperation.

A senior IISS research fellow said that so far no formal trilateral meeting has taken place, but the idea sounds excellent, adding that a lot of ground was required to be covered, particularly in terms of India and Pakistan before everything else. China can play a role in ensuring that both countries are able to disperse the historical barricades and move in terms of ensuring the security which is going to be based on not traditional military security, but economic, social and popular security in the region. In order to curb military hostilities among the three neighbouring nations, a joint mechanism has to be set up.

Meanwhile, China and Pakistan were currently building the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor whereas China was also developing the
Bangladesh-China-India-Myanmar Economic Corridor.
