It's interesting timing that while Trump and Kim Jung Un meet to discuss nuclear weapons, 2 other nuclear powers go to war.

China and Russia will watch this very carefully. They cant afford a major war in their backyard.
India is in Russia's backyard??

It would affect them, though, shared border or not. Pakistan has long been a China's ally, while Russia maintains a "special relationship" with India, going back all the way to the Soviet era.

Isn't the Chinese alliance relatively recent given that Pakistan was on the US side in the Cold War?

Nope. When Bangladesh got its independence, there was some talk of a Bangladesh /  India / USSR vs USA / China / Pakistan war.
