Pakistan and China’s Silk Road is a game changer

The Chinese President Xi Jinping has announced a 46 billion dollar investment plan during his recent visit to Pakistan. The China-Pakistan economic corridor will link deep water port of Gwadar in south west of Pakistan with Kashgar in China’s North West Xinjiang region. This proposed Silk Road will ensure China’s access to the Middle East, Africa and Europe.

This investment plan will finance road and energy projects. It will also spark economic activity in Pakistan and create jobs. This plan is more than double than total direct foreign investment since 2008 in Pakistan.

Asia has become extremely prosperous since it has thrown away the shackles of colonization by the West. The Asian century has started.

USA: Iran’s nuclear programme

USA and its Western allies have xenophobic policies towards all races and countries around the world. The West does not want any other race to compete with it by developing new technologies.

It had discriminatory policies against many countries such as China and India in the past. The reason behind such policies was to stop any non-Western country or race to stand on its feet.

The Western policies against Muslim countries such as Iran and Pakistan were highly discriminatory and Islamophobic in nature. The West wants to control the whole world and impose its policies on every country of the world.

However, the West cannot impose its will on many countries. As a result the West is trying to negotiate with Iran. The West also negotiated with China and India after it failed to stop progress in these countries. The neo-colonial agenda is doomed to fail again because the people of the world are united against xenophobic policies of the West.

Pakistan facilitating Afghan peace process

Pakistan's army chief, General Raheel Sharif during his recent visit to Kabul renewed Pakistan’s offer to facilitate peace process in Afghanistan.

After the defeat of American led Western forces in Afghanistan there are renewed hopes for a lasting peace in Afghanistan. Pakistan as a neighbour wants to play a constructive role in the peace and prosperity in Afghanistan.

Dwindling American hegemony in the world especially in Asia will have a final kick in the guts due to a successful peace process in Afghanistan. China has also offered to help peace process in Afghanistan.

Pakistan, China, Russia and other regional forces want to get rid of the Western interference in this region to start a new era of peace and prosperity.

Peshawar attacks: Musharraf blames India for terrorism

Former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf said that India is involved in terrorism in Pakistan.

Musharraf said, “Do you know who is Maulana Fazlullah? He is the Tehrik -Taliban Pakistan commander. He is in Afghanistan. And I am reasonably sure that he was supported by former Karzai government and RAW to carry out terror attacks in Pakistan”.

Former head of Pakistani intelligence agency, Hamid Gul also accused India for terrorist attacks in Pakistan.

India must realise by promoting terrorism in the region, India will harm itself. Pakistani nation backed by its army is strong enough to face any challenge.

USA: Afghanistan is the graveyard of empires.

After the longest war in American history, thousands of soldiers killed and wounded, trillions of dollars wasted on an unwinnable war, America has finally accepted its fate. Military historians call it a defeat.

US President Barak Obama said, “Afghanistan remains a dangerous place, and the Afghan people and their security forces continue to make tremendous sacrifices in defence of their country.”

America was warned by many to keep away from Afghanistan. However, Americans insisted to invade Afghanistan. Now they have firsthand experience of defeat in Afghanistan which is called the graveyard of empires.

British Defence Secretary, Philip Hammond said, “Afghanistan is an incredibly complex society … Our ability to influence outcomes is very limited … the long-run solution to security has to be an Afghan solution; it cannot be imposed from outside.”

British MPs cross-party defence committee labelled the pull out as “withdrawal through fatigue”. “The MPs warned that the start of an Afghan-led peace settlement with the Taliban was vital to ensure the country's stability and security after the withdrawal of British troops next year” according to the British newspaper Guardian.

Americans should realize that the days of their supremacy are over. It’s time for America and its Western allies to respect the will of people around the world.

India’s economic future depends on Kashmir

India depends on Pakistan to trade with Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia by land. India has shown its desperation to persuade Pakistan to let it trade by land during South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) meeting in Kathmandu, Nepal.

“Pakistan refused to approve two agreements allowing the seamless movement of goods and passenger vehicles and railways citing a lack of domestic approval, according to two officials, who did not want to be identified as the information was private” according to according to Bloomberg news agency.

Nepal’s Prime Minister Sushil Koirala said that “It is upon us, the member states, to decide how strong and effective SAARC becomes … Despite many transformative potential in the region, our achievement stands short of expectations, and we alone are responsible for shortcoming in the SAARC process.”

India has failed to implement United Nations’ resolutions to resolve the issue of Kashmir. If India wants to help its poor people by trade then it must resolve the issue of Kashmir. People of Kashmir deserve to decide their future through democratic means given to them through the resolutions of United Nations.

Kashmir - the most dangerous place in the world

Indian army has accelerated killing innocent civilians on the disputed border of Kashmir. Pakistani army responded to Indian attacks with a measured and proportionate retaliation. Pakistan has restrained itself in response to unprovoked Indian attacks.

However, former President of Pakistan, General Pervez Musharraf said that “Pakistan will never shy of using the nuclear weapons against India if the need arises” in an interview to a news channel from India. He said that Indian Prime Minister, “Modi will have to change his stance. He is anti-Muslim and anti-Pakistan”.

Former US President Bill Clinton also said that “the most dangerous place in the world today, I think you could argue, is the Indian subcontinent and the line of control in Kashmir”.

It is time for India to diffuse the dangerous situation in Kashmir. The core issue between India and Pakistan is Kashmir. The only way to resolve this issue is to let people of Kashmir decide their own destiny.
