Media: China intends to create a military base in Pakistan

39
Newspaper South China Morning Post (Hong Kong English edition) writes that official Beijing allegedly intends to expand the Chinese military presence in the Middle East. At the same time, an understanding emerges of why substantial friction has recently begun between Washington and Islamabad.


The fact is that China, according to the reports of this publication, intends to create its own naval base in Pakistan. To locate the base, the Pakistani port of Gwadar (Baluchistan province) was chosen. The port itself in this city was built with the active support of Chinese investors in the early 2000's. The opening of the port of Gwadar took place in 2007 year.

Media: China intends to create a military base in Pakistan


China is positioning the development of port infrastructure in Pakistan as part of its plan to create the largest trade route in Eurasia - “One Belt, One Road”.

In the West, China’s trade plans in the region are not believed in exclusively and they say that Beijing is taking advantage of the opportunity to strengthen its military component in the region. At the same time, in the West, they are trying to “wind up” the situation with statements that China is increasing its military presence in the region against India.

Earlier, Donald Trump blamed Pakistan for “badly fighting off terrorists” with huge amounts of US aid. If you believe the US president, in recent years, Islamabad received 33 billion dollars from the States.

        - Fighting the fifth point, Pakistan senses that soon the states will have a cordyk. But China is on the rise! So why can’t you put straws in advance?

        Protection of trade routes
        In December, China established a base in Africa, in Eritrea, opposite Yemen, last summer on the island of Sri Lanka, near India. The China-Pakistan highway is under construction, via Tibet, with access to the new port of Gwadar. States in response actively offer India to be friends against China.

          Hello Sergey! They are actively proposing to us to be friends against China. wink(Sanctions, including because of this) We do not like the American world order and we are not silent about this, but are actively building relations with China! China is building an alternative the dollar and we are participating in this repeat

            That’s not true, they don’t offer anything like that to Russia, otherwise they would have been friends for a long time. Russia is required to do one thing - to obey.

            At an extreme meeting, Xi and Modi agreed on China's largest investment in India. In 2016, they increased 6 times compared to the 15th year. In general, the leaders agreed to 300 billion. investment from China and India.
            Against this background, there is no need to talk about a military conflict. Last year there was a border conflict, which was extinguished in 2-3 days by the political will of the leaders of these countries.
            Both countries are members of the SCO, CICA and BRICS - these sites were created in order to remove contradictions. hi
            They perfectly understand who needs such troubles.

          China began to build this highway back in the 60s (oh how far the Chinese are counting). Now it is a strategic highway with which the Chinese went directly to the Gulf of Oman and the Indian Ocean. What remains for the Indians to do? Well, at least in Tajikistan to gain a foothold. And the highway is wonderful

      One Chinese weather base will not do. It seems that China intends to hide from the eyes of some kind of joint venture. Perhaps the production of synthetic drugs.

        The new powerful port was created by the Chinese. There comes the railway from China.
        The second "Silk Road".
        And they cover him from all sorts of "accidents" with military bases.

      It would be interesting to know the purpose of this base.

      Let me try to guess:
      1. Protection and control of sea trade routes from China to Europe.
      2. Support expansion to Africa
      3. Strengthening military positions in the region

    This United States will not be allowed, for letting the Chinese go there, it’s essentially losing Pakistan to begin with, then Chinese expansion will expand to the whole region! Then the United States will have only two options - to leave like a beaten mongrel, tail-tail, or to set fire to this region, starting there wars in several countries at once, where there are ethnic or religious differences. And there, like throughout the world, there are enough such countries, so that wars will start quickly and easily, and it will be almost impossible to stop them.

      Already. Someone threw off Musharraf. After that, Pakistan’s friendship with the United States ended. Now this country is tightly tied to China. Economically (there are a lot of joint projects), military (the base of the Air Force is the joint aircraft JF-17, K-8 is again Chinese, the new frigate is again Chinese), by the elites (the Chinese have plagued the entire anti-Chinese element in characteristic palace intrigues).

        After all, it began 10 years ago.

    The fact that it will not be entirely commercial is unambiguous. Clearly, India is a bone in the throat. Perhaps they will turn to us for the Bastions, although they have Israeli products on this subject. And China will not offend Pakistan with money - the port base is more profitable.

    Beijing takes this opportunity to strengthen its military component in the region
    He does the right thing using the situation. One would think that the West would have acted differently under favorable conditions.
