Belt and Road Initiative: What They're Saying



AYESHA SIDDIQA 
Research Associate at the School of Oriental and African Studies
On the increasing power of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor Authority in Pakistan 
"It’s basically building a new institution that is parallel to the government. We are in a phase of hybrid martial law."

DAW KHIN KHIN KYAW KYEE
Head of China Desk at the Institute for Strategy and Policy (Myanmar) 
On the visit of Yang Jiechi, Chinese Director of the Office of the Central Commission for Foreign Affairs, to Myanmar
"As the [Burmese] election is getting nearer, [Yang’s] trip is aimed at checking the status of China’s strategic projects in Myanmar. Before the election, China wants to make sure the CMEC projects get off the ground. In other countries, the implementation of BRI projects normally moved forward very quickly. Here, the government is very cautious and the process is still slow.
JOSEP BORRELL
High Representative of the European Union
On Chinese economic engagement with the European Union, prior to Wang Yi’s European visit
"Our relationship is excessively asymmetric for the current level of Chinese development. And that must be corrected. If we don’t do it now, in a few years it will be too late. Chinese products will continue to move up the value chain and our economic and technological dependence will increase."

HEIKO MAAS
German Foreign Minister
After Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi’s visit to Germany
"We as Europeans act in close cooperation-- we offer our international partners respect, and we expect the exact same from them. Threats don’t fit in here."

ZUZANA CAPUTOVA
President of Slovakia
After Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi threatened a Czech Senate speaker after visiting 

"EU-China relations are based on dialogue and mutual respect. Threats directed at one of the EU members and its representatives contradict the very essence of our partnership and as such are unacceptable.

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 .
