Trump Sanctions Against Iran Frighten India

https://inserbia.info/today/2017/02/trump-sanctions-against-iran-frighten-india/
ByKoushik Das -Feb 9, 2017US President Donald Trump’s fresh sanctions against Iran have prompted India to review its crucial connectivity project in West Asia – the Chabahar port.During his visit to Tehran in May 2016, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi assured the top Iranian leadership that New Delhi would complete the construction works of two terminals and five berths at the strategically located port on the Gulf of Oman in 18 months. PM Modi made the assurance after the West Asian country struck a nuclear deal with world powers that eventually encouraged the Barack Obama administration to withdraw a series of sanctions imposed on Iran.However, President Donald Trump made it difficult for India to complete the project within the stipulated time frame by imposing fresh sanctions on Iran a couple of days ago. Washington made the move immediately after Tehran test-fired two ballistic missiles.The US Trea…

The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is largely viewed as a significant Chinese investment that will infuse a new life into Pakistan’s economy, but this project bears much wider strategic significance and has the potential of uniting the countries of the region in a relationship of mutual economic benefit and thereby creating dependencies that promote peace.The strategic significance of CPEC lies in the fact that the revival and expansion of the old Silk Road gives more economic choices not only to Pakistan but also to other countries of the region, reducing their dependence on the maritime trade routes controlled by the US.The British Empire had vigorously built oceanic trade routes and regimes over the two centuries. On replacing the British Empire as the key player, the US did not disturb these rout…

China’s debt-trap diplomacy

http://www.dailymirror.lk/

PROJECT SYNDICATE: If there is one thing at which China’s leaders truly excel, it is the use of economic tools to advance their country’s geostrategic interests. Through its US$1 trillion ‘one belt, one road’ initiative, China is supporting infrastructure projects in strategically located developing countries, often by extending huge loans to their governments. As a result, countries are becoming ensnared in a debt trap that leaves them vulnerable to China’s influence.Of course, extending loans for infrastructure projects is not inherently bad. But the projects that China is supporting are often intended not to support the local economy, but to facilitate Chinese access to natural resources, or to open the market for its low-cost and shoddy export goods. In many cases, China even sends its own construction workers, minimizing the number of local jobs that are created.Operating exactly as neededSeveral of the projects that have been completed are now bleeding …
