GWADAR, PAKISTAN: A day after claiming the responsibility for the attack on the iconic Pearl Continental Hotel here, the 

Balochistan Liberation Army

 (BLA) released a video message on Sunday.

In the four-minute long video, the BLA militants are heard warning China stop "aiding Pakistan to brutally suppress Baloch civilians." The video was posted at vimeo.com.

"Baloch youth has time and again warned China to immediately stop its exploitation of Baloch land. But China has failed to take notice of our genuine concerns. China is using Baloch land to further its evil designs and in doing so it is aiding Pakistan to brutally suppress Baloch civilians."

The BLA militants claimed that scores of families in Balochistan have "suffered at the hands of Pakistan military" due to China's ambitious infrastructure project- China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

"Because of the so-called CPEC, scores of Baloch families have suffered at the hands of the Pakistani military, which are financially aided and armed with Chinese support. The people of Gwadar do not have drinking water and their only source of income is being snatched because of the CPEC. But BLA will not let this continue to happen unnoticed."

Balochistan is embroiled in a separatist movement, which has now dragged China into the conflict because the province is a key pillar to the CPEC. The BLA, which opposes the CPEC, alleges that the project is aimed at exploiting the resources of the province.

On Saturday, three heavily-armed militants stormed Pearl Continent Hotel, leading to a fierce gun battle in which four persons, including the attackers, were killed. The hotel is frequented by Chinese businessmen.

In the last few years, the BLA has carried out several suicide attacks in Balochistan. The group was also behind the attack at the Chinese Consulate in Karachi last year.

Guardians of the Belt and Road

Guardians of the Belt and RoadThe internationalization of China's private security companiesby Helena Legarda and Meia NouwensFollowing the build-up of infrastructure and investment projects along China’s extensive Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), private security companies from China are also increasingly going global – to protect Chinese assets and the growing number of Chinese nationals living and working in countries along the BRI, in sometimes unstable regions. Out of the 5,000 registered Chinese private security companies, 20 provide international services, employing 3,200 security personnel in countries like Iraq, Sudan and Pakistan.The impact of this newly developing Chinese activity abroad is analyzed in this MERICS China Monitor. Chinese private security companies’ international activities pose a challenge to European interests as they are often largely unregulated and their security staff are often inexperienced in dealing with serious conflict situations and combat.
