    Chinese interest in Gwadar appears to be more Geopolitical than Geoeconomics. Perhaps that explains indifferent attention to the Baluch people.

    Hi General. If i am reading this article from Indian perspective i would say wow.. but being Pakistani and expert on CPEC i would say its completely false fabrication or may be wishful desire of Indians.
    To your dismay, Balochistan is the maximum beneficiary of CPEC. Wait for another 5 years and i would then email this article to you. Pakistan and Balochistan is much beyond what you are told and shown.
    Pakistan is a progressive and developing country. You may say its going through turmoil, we see it as transformation. Unlike going back to hatred and extremism we are shunning culture of extremism. Any way good article for Indians only.

    Don’t Build your wishful castles in the air, come down on earth. This all what you wrote doesn’t come with any logic ….? why it doesn’t have any to support your so-called analysis. analysis can not be made over assumptions and expectations. this all perhaps has everything you expecting from CPEC except any logic for it.
