In this article, the authors explore the growing economic interdependence between China and India under Modi’s regime. The authors approach the topic through a qualitative methodology that is explorative in nature; data collection is based on oral interviews and existing literature about the topic.  The authors speculate that this interdependence—if turned into a military dimension—can become a huge concern for Pakistan, a rival country of India. India and China are the emerging giant powers in Asia, but have been facing border disputes for a long time. The China-Pakistan relations have prevented India and China from coming closer, and the growing ties between China and Pakistan are sources of insecurity for India. The US-India relationship also increases the trust deficit between China and India, as China believes that the US is using India as a proxy to attack China and to prevent it from becoming a world power. The authors recommend that India and China develop a healthier and more cordial relationship, since they constitute the most important economies of the world.
