India is using Afghanistan to conspire against the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, Pakistan’s Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal alleged on Thursday. He added that Islamabad will foil India’s attempts with people’s support, Dawnreported.

The minister’s statement comes days after China said it was considering extendingthe corridor into Afghanistan. Beijing had announced the plan on Tuesday after a trilateral meeting with the foreign ministers of Pakistan and Afghanistan.

India has reiterated repeatedly that the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and the One Belt, One Road project does not respect its territorial integrity. Parts of the corridor would run through the disputed Pakistan-occupied Kashmir region.

Iqbal also accused India of violating the ceasefire along the Line of Control and killing three Pakistani soldiers the same day Pakistan “allowed” the mother and wife of former Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav to meet “on humanitarian grounds”.

India has criticised Pakistan of ill-treating Jadhav’s family during their visit. Pakistani authorities confiscated his wife Avanti Jadhav’s shoes alleging there was “something” inside them. Delhi said Islamabad had used their meeting as a propaganda tool. Pakistan has denied insulting the two women during their trip.

Regarding the cross-border firing, the Indian Army claimed its troopers had crossed the border and targeted Pakistani posts near the Rukh Chakri sector in Rawalakot. The strike was carried out a day after four Indian Army soldiers were killed after the Pakistani Army allegedly violated the ceasefire in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district.

The Rise of China-Europe Railways

The Rise of China-Europe RailwaysMarch 6, 2018The Dawn of a New Commercial Era?For over two millennia, technology and politics have shaped trade across the Eurasian supercontinent. The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive. Mercantilism and competition among Europe’s colonial powers helped pull commerce to the coastlines. Since then, commerce between Asia and Europe has traveled primarily by sea.1Against this historical backdrop, new railway services between China and Europe have emerged rapidly. Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
