China Factor

The Beijing Consensus meant authoritarian rule with secular economic growth, which seemed like a panacea to a world dumbstruck by civilisational conflicts between the Judeo-Christian side on the one hand and the rabid Islamist beliefs on the other, writes Pinaki Bhattacharya for South Asia Monitor.

 

Amidst media reports that it has stepped up the presence of troops and widening the road in Doklam area, China on October 8 said it has the right to protect its territorial rights.

 

 

A BRICS-themed subway train has started test operations in the southeastern Chinese city of Xiamen, with the "Indian carriage" depicting elephants and yoga.

 

No bottoms. No bottoms up, either. China’s new internet censorship guidelines proscribe all that entertains and refreshes.

 

General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, told Congress Tuesday that "China probably poses the greatest threat to our nation by about 2025," during a hearing on his re-appointment for the position. "China is focused on limiting our ability to project power and weakening our alliances in the Pacific," he said.

 

The Communist Party of China (CPC) is expected to amend its constitution at the upcoming national congress.

 

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi met with his Pakistani counterpart Khawaja Asif in Beijing on Friday, and they spoke highly of the bilateral relations at the press conference that followed. Wang said Pakistan has been a good brother and ironclad friend of China, and that Pakistan has spared no effort in fighting terrorism.

 

 

For a long time, the Chinese people wrongly believed that China could "control" North Korea and that North Korea's insistence on developing nuclear capabilities was a result of a failure in China's diplomacy. The international community has also misunderstood China's ability in the North Korean nuclear issue.

 

At the root of the present Doklam crisis is China’s intrusion into Bhutanese territory for its road building projects. These connectivity projects are integral to President Xi Jinping’s dream project, the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). India and Bhutan were the only two countries that did not participate in the first forum on BRI held in Beijing in May this year.

 

The inevitable is now slowly coming to pass. Costs that were not originally part of the tariffs granted to CPEC power projects are being passed to consumers, starting with the added cost of security.
