Miller Publishes Op-Ed Exploring China-Pakistan Relations

Manjari Chatterjee Miller, currently a Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and on leave from the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University where she is an Associate Professor of International Relations, published an op-ed in Hindustan Times exploring the evolution of China-Pakistan relations. 

In her article, titled “How China, Pakistan forged close ties,” Miller describes both China and Pakistan’s shared concern of India as a strategic threat as the onus for ongoing relations; however, China did not value the relationship nearly as much as Pakistan did. That has changed in recent years as India has bolstered relations with the United States and China altered its ambitions regarding the international order. Driven by these two factors, Miller argues that “this is no longer just a relationship, but a genuine partnership. India should take note.”

The full op-ed can be read on the Hindustan Times website.
