Manzoor Khan Afridi


The paper seeks to analyze the developments between China and Pakistan since the end of Indo-Pakistan war of 1965 to 1971. After the signing of Pakistan’s boundary, air and trade agreements with China, the latter continued its support to Pakistan. Their bilateral relations reached to the climax of cordiality by the exchange official visits of both leaderships and support to each other’s key issues and interests. Pakistan changed its pro-West policy of casting vote in favor of Taiwan and against of China for membership in United Nations. Chinese assistance for Pakistan’s defense sector began and supported the Pakistan’s view regarding the disputed area of Kashmir. However it was Pakistan’s start of good relations with the Soviet Union which created a doubt in China’s mind after the Tashkent Conference. It was natural for China to express her surprise on the new bilateral relationship between Pakistan and Soviet Union and called it superpowers’ conspiracy. The paper concludes that bilateralism in Pakistan’s foreign policy brought China and the US to normalization of relations where Pakistan played a bridge role between the two.
