China denies plans to build military base in Pakistan


Beijing: China today denied as “unnecessary” speculation reports that it was planning to build a military base at Jiwani in Pakistan’s Balochistan province close to the strategic Chabahar port, which is being jointly developed by India, Iran and Afghanistan.

According to reports, Pakistan may allow China to build the military base in Jiwani which is also close the Gwadar being developed by Beijing.

The Global Times had quoted a Times report that China was in talks with Pakistan to build its second overseas military base as part of a push for greater maritime capabilities along strategic sea routes.

“I am not aware of what you mentioned,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang told the media when asked to comment on the report.

The media in China and abroad had said that Pakistan had offered a key location to China as a retaliation to US President Donald Trump’s New Year Day criticism of for not cracking down on terrorist safe havens in the country.

The Chinese media has been speculating that Trump’s efforts to step up pressure on Pakistan may move it closer to as Beijing is involved in a number of projects in the country under the $50 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

“China and Pakistan are also making efforts to build the CPEC which is in the common interests of the countries along the route. I don t think it is necessary for the outside world to make too much (sic) guesses in this regard,” Lu said.

Chinese analysts said the Jiwani base was not necessary for China at present as it already has Gwadar.

Lin Minwang, a professor at Fudan University’s Centre for South Asian Studies told Global Times that “both Beijing and have the ability to build a joint naval and air facility in Pakistan, but it is unnecessary at this time.”

But he said it could be a backup plan for the Indo- Pacific strategy of the US and its allies, he told the daily.

In line with the general trend across the West, of stagnating wages and standard of living for professional-managerial classes, socio-economic anxiety among the working class, and the resulting reversal of political alignments, as politicians try to channel frustration elsewhere. https://twitter.com/Buckyball_60/status/1466733247442743299


What can we deduce from this @ruchirsharma_1 2

A thread: Pakistani newspaper Dawn's front pages from 4th december 1971 to 20 December to see how they kept their own people in the dark. This was on 4th december, after the commencement of war on 3rd december.

When this 4 month old child and his father died due to government hospital's apathy in Worli, local MLA Aditya Thackeray was busy partying or bowing down to Mamata Banerjee.


आगर मालवा के ग्राम दिवानखेड़ी के सपूत बनवारी लाल राठौर जी ने मणिपुर में मातृभूमि की सेवा करते हुए अपने प्राण न्यौछावर कर दिए।
