ISLAMABAD: The senators belonging to opposition parties have objected over Prime Minister Imran Khan’s decision to make Saudi Arabia a partner in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and to hand it Reko Dik mine project.

During a session on Monday, Senator Raza Rabbani said Parliament should have been taken into confidence before Saudi Arabia was invited to become the third partner in CPEC.

He objected to the government’s move, asking if CPEC was being reviewed or plans were under way to dilute it.

The senator further said that no statement was issued from the prime minister, except for this that Saudi Arabia was offered to set up an oil refinery in Gwadar.

Moreover, Rabbani expressed doubt over China being approached before PM Imran offered Saudi Arabia to become a partner in CPEC. He said it seemed as if China was agreeing to the Pakistani government’s move despite not wanting to do so.

About the Reko Dik project, Rabbani said the leaders in Balochistan should have been taken on board since Reko Dik is situated in the province.

He added all this meant violation of the Constitution.

While announcing protest against the decision, Senator Hasil Bizenjo said all the senators of National Party — to which he belongs — would demonstrate outside the Parliament until an explanation is given regarding the matter.

“Has the Balochistan Assembly dissolved that decisions for the province are being taken by the federal government,” Bizenjo asked.

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…
