Abstract or Introduction
This paper aims to answer the following question: How does the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor affect Sino-Indian relations?
Based on academic literature and newspaper articles, the development of the relations will be analyzed. First, a short background of Sino-Indian relations since the Sino-Indian war in 1962 will be provided, before focusing on the disputed area of Gilgit-Baltistan. Second, CPEC will be briefly described, of which the Diamer Basha Dam project -which is located in Gilgit-Baltistan - will be closely looked at. In the main part of this paper, the implications of CPEC and Diamer Basha Dam project on Sino-Indian relations will be examined. Finally, the findings will be summarized with a focus on the effects on the sustainable development goals. It is to be noted that the relationships of both China and India with Pakistan play a vital role in this research question, hence there will be references made for a thorough understanding.
