ISLAMABAD, July 7 (Xinhua) -- The concessional agreement of the 700.7-MW Azad Pattan Hydropower Project under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) has been signed, a breakthrough for the implementation of the project, according to China Gezhouba Group.

The signing of the agreement between China Gezhouba Group, the investor of the project, and the Pakistani side was witnessed on Monday by Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, Chinese ambassador to Pakistan, ministers and representatives of the project partners.

Addressing the signing ceremony, Prime Minister Khan expressed pleasure over the progress of the project, adding that it would provide green and cheap energy and would help the country save the environment.

"I am happy because this project is under CPEC and it is not a loan but an investment which will benefit Pakistan from all sides," said the prime minister during the ceremony telecasted live at local TVs, adding that CPEC is a great project which would take Pakistan to progress.

According to China Gezhouba Group, the project on a build, own, operate and transfer (BOOT) basis will be built at the Jhelum River. With a total investment of 1.54 billion U.S. dollars, the construction period of the project is expected to be 69 months and the hydropower plant will be generating some 3.265 billion units of clean energy per year and provide relief to the water shortage in the local areas once commissioned.

A large number of jobs will also be created during the construction period of the project, and the development of local transportation industry, building materials industry and other hydropower related industries will be promoted, said the Chinese company. Enditem

Historical relationship between Kurd and Baloch.

      The Kurds are the ethnical group living in a region known as Kurdistan which is divided into Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran. They  are struggling for an independent region since decades and they are famous for their female guerrilla fighters.         On 25 September 2017, the referendum for an independent Kurdish region  was held in Iraq with a turn out of 72 %.    On this important occasion, the historical relation between Kurd and Baloch people is worth discussing.        When it comes to history, every nation tends to find its roots and origin. Same goes with the Baloch people. The Baloch people are always curious  about  finding their roots in history. Even if you  talk to a shepherd in Balochistan, he will be curious to talk about his  tribal or ethnical roots.       The Balochs have always conveyed the history to the next generations in different mediums like poems etc. No Baloch before 20th century had written books on  history  or origin of the Baloch nation .
