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.

Watch What Else Is Making News

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.

    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.

                  Well we went ahead and did the cpec launch what could you do to avert it? Bomb innocent people in darga shah noorani to worsen the security situation and convey your anger over the success of this project. An how can you claim something that doesnt wanna be yours?? You say stan occupied Kashmir what we call azad jammu and Kashmir. Oh and did you see the no. of stani flags that went up in the funeral of that kashmiri you killed how was living in the Indian administrated Kashmir. And the so called administrators took his life for speaking against indian attrocities and war mongering. Call a spade a spade admit your wrongs. lt;br/gt;Build your own corridor and let us see what a great nation you are.. instad of finding loops or avenues to disrupt ours oit of spite.

                    Lol. If even half of what you say is true, then stan should have already taken Kashmir by now. Indian Muslims are not s. stan needs CPEC more than China or India need it. And what a deal! USD 46 billion for only 700k jobs, and Chinese ownership of all key installations. Three cheers to the Chinese for making stan shoulder a disproportionate share of the costs while pocketing a disproportionate share of the gains.

                          Forbes??? Since when do you need outsiders telling you to manage your foreign policy. India needs to join the CPEC train or get run over. lt;br/gt;Besides, if India sabotages CPEC, China-Pak can do same in Kashmir, Khalistan, am, Nagaland etc. Not a winning strategy!!!
