Casting a shadow on the security situation prevailing in Pakistan, the Pakistan general manager of the Chinese shipping major, Cosco Shipping Lines Company, was shot dead in Karachi, the financial hub of the country, Reuters has reported.

Chen Zhu, 45 was in his car in an upscale area in Karachi, when the car was shot at and Zhu died from a bullet wound to the head.

“The incident appears to be targeted attack, doesn’t look like a mugging,” said Azad Khan, deputy inspector general of Karachi’s south zone.

Although Pakistan is struggling with home-grown terrorism, China has invested close to $57 billion in Pakistan towards the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

Last June, Islamic State (IS) had kidnapped and killed two Chinese nationals in Baluchistan underscoring the dire security situation in Pakistan.

While no group has claimed responsibility of the attack yet, China had in December issued warnings to its citizens in Pakistan owing to imminent threats to Chinese targets.

China faces a threat from Uighur IS extremists who’ve vowed that blood will 'flow in rivers' in China because of its treatment of Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang.

Geng Shuang, spokesperson for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, while speaking to reporters in Beijing said that the Chinese consulate had asked the Pakistani police to bring the killer to justice

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…
