China needs to mend bridges with India or forget CPEC dream

A report in Forbes states that Beijing is committed to the USD 46 billion project as it will eventually serve as the express link between Western China, the Middle East, and Africa.

China desperately needs the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) as it will help in pushing Beijing to the next stage of globalization, but since the project passes through regions claimed by India, China therefore needs to make peace with New Delhi. A report in Forbes states that Beijing is committed to the USD 46 billion project as it will eventually serve as the express link between Western China, the Middle East, and Africa.

But with the corridor passing through ‘Indian’ territory, it has raised several hackles in New Delhi and a vociferous protest has erupted from the Indian Government against the project. China, however, seems oblivious to India’s objections and has charged ahead with it plans.

Instead of mending fences and appeasing the Narendra Modi-led government, it has done exactly the opposite and has blocked India’s several efforts to join the elite Nuclear Supplier Group (NSG).

Besides that, China has brazenly taken Pakistan’s side on the Kashmir dispute, which clearly explains why India’s has sided with the United States in the South China Sea dispute.

Things can take a turn for the worse for Beijing if “pro-Indian forces in Pakistan” sabotage China’s CPEC route, which creates the horrific possibility of an all-out open altercation between China and Pakistan on the one side, and India and its allies on the other.

    Very few stanis realise that this did of China is a bear trap and smacks of neo colonialism. Already under tremendous debt, stan will fall into a debt trap. Due to a variety of reasons, the development will be dela ( attacks, reluctance from some optical parties etc.) stan and many parts of it is ripe for revolution. China will come down heavily on stan one there are a few Islam attacks in that country ( very high probability) China is not US to indulge with Pak lobbies etc. It would be failure if the century

    Exactly, If India think that they can do bomb blast or sabotage in stan, trust me stan can do 10 times more than what they can even think of stan-China. India is a country with 200 million Muslim who are mostly badly treated by Hindus, it is not at all a Challenge for stan to convinced 0.2 million of them to start Jihad against Indian and Hindus, just remember if Muslim convinced to Jihad than no matter what one do cannot stop them. Muslims in India are Killed for eating cow and doing their ritual sacrifices on Eid Adha. Muslim still remember how they are Killed and their women were raped in Gujrat and how every day a Muslim is Killed in Kashmir Occupied by 70 million Indian forces against United Nation resolution. If India don't want such things happened in India then try to help and stabilize stan, because now disturb stan would means disturb India.
