According to a report of Indian intelligence agencies, China has deployed its troops in Sindh region of Pakistan to protect the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

The report noted that China has deployed the troops of People Liberation Army (PLA) for the security of coal mines in Sindh's Thar region. Located in Tharparkar district of Pakistan, Thar region is only 90 kilometers away from Indo-Pak border. Several Chinese projects are going on in Sindh and most of these projects are facing stiff resistance from local people. It seems that China has decided to deploy its troops for securing the CPEC fearing such protests.

''The Border Security Forces (BSF) deployed at the Indo-Pak border have also noticed the movements of Chinese troops close to the border. It seems that due to the opposition of Chinese projects by locals  in Sindh and Balochistan regions China has deployed its troops," said an intelligence officer.

The CPEC project is around three thousand kilometer long and Pakistan has already deployed 17,000 of its troops for the security of CPEC. It is learnt that out of these 17,000 soldiers, 4000 are from special forces of Pakistani Army. But it seems that China does not have much faith in the Pakistani army and this is the reason why Beijing has decided to send PLA troops too.

It may be recalled that Pakistan's army chief had visited China in July last year and met with Chinese Prime Minister emier Li Keungang and vice president Fen Changlong. During the meeting, China had thanked the Pakistani Army for the security of CPEC and Pakistani Army Chief had also assured China of providing full security to CPEC.

A ‘European Silk Road’

publication_icon Philipp Heimberger ,  Mario Holzner and Artem Kochnev wiiw Research Report No. 430, August 2018  43 pages including 10 Tables and 17 Figures FREE DOWNLOAD The German version can be found  here . In this study we argue for a ‘Big Push’ in infrastructure investments in greater Europe. We propose the building of a European Silk Road, which connects the industrial centres in the west with the populous, but less developed regions in the east of the continent and thereby is meant to generate more growth and employment in the short term as well as in the medium and long term. After its completion, the European Silk Road would extend overland around 11,000 kilometres on a northern route from Lisbon to Uralsk on the Russian-Kazakh border and on a southern route from Milan to Volgograd and Baku. Central parts are the route from Lyon to Moscow in the north and from Milan to Constanţa in the south. The southern route would link Central Europe with the Black Sea area and
