India enhancing terrorism in Balochistan: speakersSeptember 7, 2015
JAMSHORO: Speakers at the 2nd day of a conference termed India as an immense threat to regional peace, saying that Modi government is enhancing terrorism in the Balochistan province.
They said that integrating with the expanding global economy of China would spur economic growth in Pakistan, adding that the Pakistani government has handed over the operations of Gwadar port to China for more investment into its infrastructural developments to realize the objectives of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, a history development that would change the trade, market and communication structure of the region.
They were speaking at a two-day international conference titled “Pak-China Strategic Partnership and its Regional Implications”, organised by Sindh University’s (SU) Area Study Centre on Tuesday. The conference was concluded after having two working sessions on the next day.
Dr Rasool Bux Raees said that Pakistani youth must learn Chinese language in a bid to get job opportunities in the international job market across world as Chinese had a big investment in various countries. “Only those can get jobs in China and in multi-national companies working under Chinese in other countries, who are cognizant with English and Chinese languages,” he added.
He said Indian premier Modi was an international culprit for burning and killing thousands of people in Gujrat which caused the refusal of issuance of visa once by the United States of America.
“In today’s world one must understand partnerships with reference to trade, energy corridors, future growth prospects and economics integration patterns of the larger central & south Asian regions,” said Dr. Rasool Bux Raees.
Another speaker Dr Sarfraz Khan said Sino-Pakistan relations stood out as one of the few enduring friendships that had withstood the pressure of time and shifting geo-strategic conditions. “Their strong convergence in security interests has led to a multi-faceted strategic relationship which is reflected in a strong show of support for each other’s positions across a wide spectrum of bilateral, regional & international issues,” he maintained.
He looked at the regional dimensions, in particular the relevance of India to Sino-Pak relations and peace building & rehabilitation process of Afghanistan by realizing the fact that peace and development in the region are mostly connected with the stability and peace in Afghanistan.
Dr. Nazir Hussain said, “Though China has committed multi-billion dollars for the projects but Pakistan’s domestic politics, controversies over route, terrorism and long time period for its completion cast heavy shadows on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
Moreover, he said that Indians’ unease and covert actions to sabotage the project along with the US reservations added further challenges to the project. However, he said with political resolve by both Sino-Pak and guarantees by Pakistani army to safeguard the project, initiation of the project on fast-track and financial commitment by China would augur well for the project.
Dr Manzoor Ali Isran, Zhejiang Normal University Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Lou Shizhou, Dr Abdul Majeed Chandio, Dr. Riaz Ahmed and Dr. Hamadullah Kakepoto also presented their research papers on the occasion.
