In
October
2020,
reports
said
that
China
is
helping
Pakistan
set
up
sites
for
surface-to-air
missiles
in
PoK
and
the
soldiers
of
both
the
sides
have
been
carrying
out
joint
patrols
in
the
region.

New
Delhi,
Aug
05:

A
Chinese
construction
company
has
been
renovating
bunkers
and
building
new
ones
in
areas
adjoining
Muzzafarabad
an
Athmuqam.
It
has
set
up
an
office
in
Pakistan
occupied
Kashmir
(PoK).

The
area
falls
under
the
Kel
sector
of
the
Pakistan
army’s
32
decision
and
these
sites
have
been
camouflaged.
However
this
is
not
the
first
time
that
the
Chinese
are
undertaking
activity
of
this
nature
in
the
region.

China, Pak can play friends but India has larger plans to expose them

Earlier
Beijing
had
sent
manpower
and
machines
to
Pakistani
territory
opposite
Bikaner
in
Rajasthan.
A
forward
airbase
was
upgraded
and
over
350
stone
bunkers
and
border
outposts
were
refurbished.
China
justifies
these
actions
citing
threats
to
the
China-Pakistan
Economic
Corridor
and
also
its
nationals
working
on
its
projects.

The
location
used
by
Pakistan’s
Khuzdar
Missile
Regiment
has
also
reported
Chinese
activity.
A
UNI
report
said
that
construction
of
cave
type
storage
facilities
by
Chinese
soldiers
has
been
reported
from
Ranikot,
Sindh
along
the
Sehwan-Hyderabad
highway.
The
report
citing
evidence
said
that
10
to
15
Chinese
soldiers
were
seen
engaged
in
construction
of
underground
bunkers
at
the
Pakistan
Army
Camp
(40
Frontier
Force).
The
Indian
government
has
been
informed
about
the
developments
taking
place.

In
October
2020,
reports
had
said
that
China
is
helping
Pakistan
set
up
sites
for
surface-to-air
missiles
in
PoK
and
the
soldiers
of
both
the
sides
have
been
carrying
out
joint
patrols
in
the
region.
The
army
had
then
said
that
because
of
the
CPEC
there
is
the
presence
of
China
in
Pakistan.
“The
military
cooperation
in
terms
of
equipment
is
there,
but
we
are
not
seeing
any
tactical
help,”
the
army
said.

In
this
context
the
decision
by
India
to
host
the
G-20
Summit
in
Jammu
and
Kashmir
and
Ladakh
is
an
important
one.
Both
Pakistan
and
China
have
cried
foul
and
have
opposed
India’s
plans.

This
has
put
both
countries
in
a
spot
of
bother
and
Pakistan
has
already
turned
to
Turkey
and
Saudi
Arabia
urging
them
to
boycott
the
summit.
The
summit
could
put
the
focus
on
China’s
illegal
activity
under
the
garb
of
the
CPEC
project
and
also
how
Pakistan
relentlessly
continues
to
fund
terror
in
the
region.

Infringement of sovereignty: India opposes China, Pak invite to third countries to join CPECInfringement
of
sovereignty:
India
opposes
China,
Pak
invite
to
third
countries
to
join
CPEC

The
abrogation
of
the
Article
370
on
August
5,
2019
has
led
to
several
opportunities
in
Jammu
and
Kashmir.
Several
CEOs
from
Gulf
countries
have
already
visited
Kashmir
to
explore
investment
opportunities.
30
business
persons
had
taken
part
in
an
investment
summit
in
March
this
year.

These
developments
do
not
bode
well
for
both
Pakistan
and
China
as
the
presence
of
several
international
firms
would
put
the
focus
on
the
activity
that
is
being
undertaken
under
the
garb
of
protecting
the
CPEC.
