#China plans to sell #Pakistan an aircraft carrier and integrate it militarily - I believe a carrier for Pak is far fetched, but the article is very revealing about CN plans for Pak, something that usually gets dismissed @desertfox61I @avarakai sundayguardianlive.com/news/china-pla…
Beijing is increasingly integrating Pakistan into its military system to fulfill its global ambitions. Meanwhile, India refuses to sell Brahmos to Vietnam for fear of upsetting China. China is not reciprocating India's actions. #Huawei is allowed to bid for the 5G network.
Conscious Western efforts to retard its growth & access to hi-tech supply chains, Beijing has adopted an overtly benign tone with its neighbors. These are, however, cosmetic tactical measures & China’s ambition of developing “a kind of military force system” has not changed.
CN-Pak relations are moving from “all-weather strategic cooperative partnership” to one where China is increasingly integrating Pakistan into its military system to fulfil global ambitions. The CN Pak Economic Corridor is an important part, but more important is the military role
There are clear indicators that China is not only strengthening Pakistan to restrict India’s growth by keeping it under direct military pressure, but that it plans to use Pakistan as the outpost for its extended global maritime reach.
China has also been selling military hardware, including nuclear weapons technology, warships, aircraft and missiles to Pakistan and has recently begun helping Pakistan develop aerospace capability.
The establishment inside Pakistan of satellite stations linked to China’s BeiDou Satellite Navigation System ensures that the avionics, guidance systems etc., of the Pakistan military will be tied in with Chinese systems.
An official media report disclosed that China has planned to carry out a “large-scale upgrade” of China’s first aircraft carrier, the Liaoning, and “sell it to Pakistan to compete with India”! It described Pakistan “as the best destination for it”, this is planned for 2030.
There are now clear indications that China has decided to build five aircraft carriers and launch them by 2025-2030. Two of them will be nuclear-powered. Whether a sixth aircraft carrier will be built is still uncertain.
I've been saying to not underestimate what CN can deploy in Pak & I.O. in the future. I got into heated arguments with @vgmenon99 & others over this (something I very much regret) but the signs are pointing in that direction. Don't know the future, CN could collapse tomorrow, but
#China not reciprocating India’s gestures, says parliamentary panel - #India has not given diplomatic recognition to #Taiwan and it recently acquiesced to “China’s demand to refer to Taiwan as ‘Chinese Taipei’” hindustantimes.com/india-news/chi…
India is “overtly cautious” about China’s sensitivities on Taiwan and Tibet but Beijing hasn’t shown the “same deference” while dealing with New Delhi’s sovereignty concerns linked to Arunachal Pradesh or China–Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), a parliamentary panel has said.
Parliament’s committee on external affairs expressed concern at the government’s Taiwan policy & said that “even when India is overtly cautious about China’s sensitivities while dealing with Taiwan & Tibet, China doesn't show the same deference while dealing with India’s concerns
