Despite Indian Antics, Pakistan Wants it to Become Part of CPEC

China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) can be called the flagship project of our country. Several countries have shown interest in becoming a part of the economic corridor and recently UK also announced that it wants to join the CPEC.

Now it has been revealed that Pakistan plans to invite India to be a part of CPEC. The offer was formally extended by Pakistan’s National Security Advisor Nasir Janjua recently as per media reports.

Pragmatic Offer or Olive Branch?

Pakistan’s National Security Adviser, Nasser Khan Janjua, recently stated that the government has offered India to join CPEC and work towards bringing peace and prosperity in the region.

Experts are divided over this offer being made to India. While this is an attempt at letting the world know of Pakistan’s role at promoting peace in the world, the Modi-led government has made its intentions pretty clear by refuting all of Pakistan’s attempts at peace. Many argue that the olive branch of CPEC may be similarly snubbed as well.

Concluding Thoughts

Many are of the view that Pakistan should be informing the world of Indian mutiny at Pakistan’s border areas and the Kashmir region instead of inviting India to join CPEC, especially after leading figures like General (r) Raheel Sharif and officials from Pakistan’s security apparatus have clearly called out India for its attempts at sabotaging the CPEC.

Considering India’s aggressive policies towards Pakistan and the CPEC, it remains to be seen whether the country will respond positively to this offer, or continue to adopt a negative posture towards Pakistan and hinder its progress.

    Ap CPEC ki baat karte ho hum kahen ge k saare sifarati taaluqaat khatam kiye jayen India se..

  • Lol, they have their own land based trade with China. And they know China is their biggest competitor

  • A diplomatically sound move made by the National Security Adviser here.
    Everybody knows that India will refuse to join but the fact that Pakistan was the first one to offer peace is a great way to improve its image in the world.

    • Your assumption is good, but what if India agrees?
      Kalbushan is infront of us, many more news about the RAW agents in sugar mills, do you think this type of offer at this time is like come and kick my ass?

  • @ProPk staff member: kalbhushan ka likha or india agay kia kar sakta hy wo likha to comment delete kar diya, are you serious or paid by modi?

  • If we keep our bigoted frame of mind aside and dont actually use our brains, getting india on board with CPEC is in favor of Pakistan greatly, the revenue of shipping, more jobs, more pressure on India if our terms gets worse that current, Pakistan can always use CPEC as a leverage… Think…
