China-South Asia Strategic Engagements - 1
China's Strategic-Security Interests in South Asia
This paper analyzes the current geostrategic and security dimensions of South Asia and how they impact Chinese foreign policy. More specifically, it dwells on existing border disputes; regional anti-access strategies designed to keep 'intruders' out; the continuing challenges posed by separatism and terrorism; and a Chinese security strategy that increasingly stresses multilateralism and mutual cooperation in the area.
