At a Joint Working Group (JWG) meeting at Islamabad in November 2017, China announced its decision to suspend funding for at least three road projects in Pakistan, pending the release of “new guidelines” (Dawn, December 5, 2017). Only a few days earlier, Pakistan rejected Chinese funding for the $14-billion Diamer-Bhasha dam project and withdrew its request for inclusion of this project in CPEC.

U.S., Pakistan: A Carrot-and-Stick Approach to Ports Jan 11, 2018 | 20:34 GMT (Stratfor 2018) Forecast Update In Stratfor's 2018 Annual Forecast, we wrote that although the United States and Pakistan would take actions intended to needle the other, the two countries would grudgingly maintain their defense cooperation. That analysis has held true, as Pakistan and the United States continue to negotiate over the details of their cooperation and attempt to pursue their conflicting interests in Afghanistan.  See 2018 Annual Forecast Underneath the din of sharpening words between the United States and Pakistan, a quiet dialogue endures. Despite their harsh rhetoric, both countries are seeking to balance cooperation with coercion as they advance their respective strategies in Afghanistan.

French president questions China’s New Silk Road strategy By  EMANUELE SCIMIA JANUARY 12, 2018 3:49 PM (UTC+8) 35 1 On Wednesday, President Emmanuel Macron of France wrapped up a three-day state visit to China aimed at improving ties between Europe and the Asian giant, with no apparent breakthrough. The French leader tried to put himself forward as the standard-bearer of the “great rejuvenation of Sino-European cooperation” – paraphrasing one of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s maxims, his dream for “the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.” But he likely failed in his bid. The dailyReport Must-reads from across Asia - directly to your inbox Despite all the diplomatic trimmings and a rather flattering approach, Macron actually offered his Chinese counterpart little prospect for progress in relations. His finance minister, Bruno Le Maire, reaffirmed during the trip that Paris would  scrutinize Chinese investments  in an attempt to protect France’s high-te

Killing Baloch on frivolous charges by millitant groups

.....By a well known Balich activist , extracted from SM The break of the militants with the political forces came with the uncalled for killing of Maula Bakhsh Bashti. I first saw him in 1979 fixing the drinks of guerrilla leader  Sher Mohammed Marri aka General Sheroff at Frontier Hotel. Of course he became a critic of militancy in late 2000s but did that mean he deserved death? When his cousin Mohammed Husain told the law-enforcement who killed Dashti and he was himself killed. A third cousin who is American and works for the Homeland Security was a great supporter of the freedom movement but got disheartened by these actions. Then the killer was killed by the BLF many years later not because he had killed the Dashti cousins but because he was trying to set up his own organization.  Here is the list of Baloch locals target killed by BLF & BRA on frivolous charges   1-عبدوست تمپ 2-اکرم کورجو میرعیسئ 3-وقار نظر آباد 4-دوست محمد نظر آباد 5-علی احمد نظر آباد 6-صدام نظر آباڈ

Balochistan National Congress strongly condemns the killing of Mohammad Baksh Jagoo.

Balochistan National Congress strongly condemns the killing of Mohammad Baksh Jagoo. January 11, 2018 Washington DC- Mohammad Bakhsh aka Juagoo, the Tiger of Mekran, is no more. He was killed by BRA terrorists the other day in Mekran, Balochistan . Balochistan National Congress (BNC) strongly condemn the killing of Jagoo Baloch by BRA and BLF Terrorists. If they think by acting as the Judge, Jury and Executioner, they can kill the political opponents and innocent Baloch citizens who don't agree with their militancy and terrorism and they can liberate Balochistan, they are seriously mistaken, extremely wrong and misguided and are living in fools paradise. Jagoo was a great son of soil. He lost his entire family fighting the Punjabi occupying forces in Mekran. It is shame that BRA and BLF trying to justify their terrorism by throwing dirt on Jagoo’s dead body in the name of liberation movement. This shows how ugly and disgusting one can be. All the allegations labeled against hi
