Though Pakistan watched with anxiety as the Chinese President Xi Jinping hosted an informal summit with the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, it further has reasons to roil.
This is because the two major economies of the world have now come together to work in Afghanistan on projects.
This is quite contrast to the Pakistani position which said that India has no role whatsoever in Afghanistan.
It is said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping have agreed to undertake a joint India-China economic project in Afghanistan.
The decision came about at their first informal summit in Wuhan.
As per the understanding, officials of both sides will identify the project in follow-up discussions and work out modalities.
China for the first time held a trilateral meeting with the foreign ministers of Pakistan and Afghanistan in December last in Beijing to narrow down the differences between the two countries.
China had also announced plans to extend its controversial CPEC to Afghanistan at the meeting.>
