A letter by Pakistan Interior Ministry says that India has sent a group of 400 Muslim youth to Afghanistan to get training.

The Pakistan establishment is fearing an attack by India on installations of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), and is already making security arrangements to avoid any such incident. According to Pakistan-based media agency Dawn, the Pakistan government has written to Gilgil-Baltistan home department in this regard.

Dawn quoted an official of the home department as saying that a recent directive by the country’s Interior Ministry warned of a possible attack on the CPEC route.

According to the report, the letter sent by Pakistan Interior Ministry says that India has sent a group of 400 Muslim youth to Afghanistan to get training, following which they would be used to attack CPEC installations in Pakistan.

The targets of India include bridges at Karakoram Highway, mentions the letter.

Following the development, security along the CPEC route has been increased by Pakistan, and the situation is reportedly being monitored by senior officials of the Gilgit-Baltistan administration. The bridges along the route have also been declared sensitive.

The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor has been a bone of contention between China and India since its inception. Changing its stance on the issue, China had a week back said that it was ready to hold talks with India to resolve their differences on the contentious issue.

"As to the differences between China and India, China stands ready to communicate and hold talks with India to seek a proper solution so that these differences will not affect our general national interests. This best serves the interests of the two countries," Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying had said.

The CPEC is a network of infrastructure projects that are currently under construction throughout Pakistan that will connect China's Xinjiang province with Gwadar port in Pakistan's Balochistan province.

Meanwhile, in a notable setback to the CPEC project, it is increasingly being questioned by politicians and media in Pakistan. The questions that are being raised against CPEC within Pakistan range from doubts over financial viability, the country's ability to repay the debts, the secrecy surrounding the projects and the apparent use of Chinese workers instead of local labour

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…
