    A Pakistani diplomat lost his cool over what he termed as "Pakistan bashing" during a seminar organised by the London School of Economics. Political Counsellor at the Pakistan High Commission in London Khalid Majid, agitatedly accused certain speakers at the seminar

    Pakistani professor at LSE Athar Hussain said that China has significantly changed it policy on Kashmir to the disadvantage of Pakistan.

    He added, "On the Indian front, there is a misconception that China will always support Pakistan. However, the truth is that China supports Pakistan up to a certain extent and is not going to fight wars for Pakistan since it has its interests very clear."

    He's supposed to be a very pro pak guy right ? AFAIK he wrote "Pakistan a Hard Country"

    Strange that he allowed the session to devolve into "Pakistan bashing" :confused:

    Pakistan will soon get a rude shock when even China distances itself from Pakistan
    and that day will come because Pakistan offers absolutely nothing in ECONOMIC terms

    Pakistani economy is in very bad shape and ALL power groups are busy filling their pockets
    As the article points out " The Internal situation ,the shambolic and corrupt practices of Pakistani leadership
    are big source of worry for China "

    China believes in God helps those who help themselves.

    They have helped themselves with Pak territory - Shaksgam!

    will china distance itself from pakistan? doesnt seem so, at least not so soon, certainly not for another few decades if not more.

    china has global ambitions to achieve and pakistan has a part to play in that, dont forget this is exactly what the pakistanis did for the americans, china feeds a parasite in dprk, and that is how pakistan also fits in, also figure in, pakistan fits in to get access to ME and others in that part of the world, which helps by pass the rather long sea route full of bottle necks, and then here is a country which has nukes in its hands which when in need can be used as a blackmail tact by the chinese to further their interests and pakistanis will be more than a willing partner to be used whichever way.

    if china was to give up on pakistan, pakistan will have no other option but to fall back on the americans, its a mother of all necessities for them, they need either of these two, something to which the americans will be more than open to. then there remains the islamic terror angle in china which could then be triggered off in china which then could become a reason of instability in china and a serious cause of concern for CCP whose rule could then be under threat, something the CCP cant afford, nor want at any cost.

    feeding pakistan is in china's interest, certainly till the time pakistanis are ready to be used to the very last man. psyching up pakistanis up by saying they have a all weather friendship serves them well, and the pakistanis high on emotions love the rhetoric, chinese indeed are fine business chaps, they certainly know what sells with the pakistanis.

    this relationship is not going anywhere at least for now.

    I'm not sure about China distancing itself as much as the Professor thinks. Also not sure about wars or lack of support on the Kashmir issue as cited in the article. why? because Pakistan is effectively selling off its sovereignty by handing the Chinese rights to its lands in POK and its harbors , in return for aid they are not getting and will miss out sooner or later from the US. All their infrastructure projects are run by Chinese, paid by Chinese, headed by Chinese where they sideline Pakistan's industry heads...and hire only Chinese to execute it mostly.. so with so much vested interest- I'm not sure China will back off from Pak support in wars or on Kashmir.
