A Chinese think tank recently contended that if India intervened in the affairs of Balochistan in anyway then China would have to step in.
The China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations Director Dr Hu Shisheng in an interview said that China would thwart all moves against the $46 billion China–Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
He said that Modi’s recent controversial statement regarding Balochistan have alarmed China and its intelligentsia.
If India attempted to jeopardise the region’s stability then Indo-China relations could get worse, he added.
Indian Prime Minsiter Narendra Modi’s controversial statements on the Independence Day regarding Balochistan received widespread criticism.
Modi had said the people of Balochistan and Gilgit Baltistan had thanked him and that he was grateful to them.
China-Pakistan economic corridor (CPEC) is a mega project of USD 45+ billion taking the bilateral relationship between Pakistan and China to new heights. The economic corridor is about 3000 Kilometres long consisting of highways, railways and pipelines that will connect China’s Xinjiang province to rest of the world through Pakistan’s Gwadar port.
