China has no legal right to build in an occupied territory

*REPORT excerpt , CPEC projects in PoK is illegal and violation of International law*

Furthermore, the current building of the multibillion-dollar infrastructural project of the China Pakistan Economic Corridor, which passes through the disputed territory of Gilgit-Baltistan - a region of Jammu & Kashmir under the administration of Pakistan - comes as a direct violation of the doctrines of International Law. China has no legal right to build in an occupied territory, the same way Pakistan does not have the right to sell territories, which does not belong to it. The implementation of the project is being enforced violently, leading to the large-scale displacement of the local population from their homes and farmlands in several areas of Gilgit-Baltistan in order to make the land available for the construction of the corridor. Moreover, the indigenous people will be completely excluded from the high profits that the multibillion-dollar project will bring, which is a direct violation of their human rights, which further will have severe negative impacts on the ecology of the region. A large number of political and human rights activists from Pakistan Administered Jammu & Kashmir, Gilgit-Baltistan, Baluchistan and Sindh have been facing sedition charges for opposing the Chinese-Pakistani project. Many of them have been charged under Pakistan’s Anti-Terrorism Act, which legally does not have any jurisdiction in Gilgit-Baltistan and Pakistan Administered Jammu & Kashmir, and are languishing in prisons across Pakistan. Evidently, it shows how the people of Jammu & Kashmir have experienced the dreadful consequences of Pakistan’s illegal annexation of their territories, unlawful sale deal to China, and steps in contravention of the same International Law, which the State invokes vis-á-vis the Durand Line.

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…
