China has a fundamental interest in India's security and prosperity and has always supported India's independent foreign policy. China's development of its own interests in the region and the region's development is a vital national interest for China. China is also concerned about Pakistan's non-peaceful and destabilizing behavior and is concerned about the increased tensions in the region

The China-Pakistan relationship is the most important bilateral relationship in the world. It is also the most important bilateral relationship in the world in terms of the size of the bilateral trade and economic relationship. I think the most important factor is that Pakistan has been the major recipient of Chinese aid and investment in recent years. That is why we are concerned about China's response

The China-Pakistan dispute over the Indus Waters Treaty has been a source of friction between the two countries for decades. The two countries have been at odds over the issue since the early 1980s when China became the largest water user in the Indus Waters Treaty

If India and Pakistan agree on a new treaty, they can sign it immediately. The treaty would have to be ratified by both countries and be approved by the UN. A treaty would be an improvement over the existing Indus Waters Treaty, which is based on the 1947 treaty. India and Pakistan have the right to share water under the treaty, but both are bound by it.

If India unilaterally withdraws from the Indus Waters Treaty, China will respond by stopping its water sharing with Pakistan. This will not only damage China's relations with Pakistan, but also with India
