    It appears that Pakistan is losing friends fast.

    This is all because of their inherent and inbuilt contradictions, search of identity mired with confusion (Arab or native, Shia or Sunni, leader of the Islamic pack or not etc etc) and playing fast and loose with all concerned.

    They may find solace that China appears to be their friend, but the truth is that China is clear about its priority and national interests and if things go against China's national interest, it will not hesitate to drop Pakistan as a hot potato. Many Pakistani commentators have expressed the same opinion on their TV shows.

    Till now, Nawaz Sharif kept India in a blow hot, blow cold mode with the Gai fond Manmohan, but Modi seems to have cold shouldered him so much so he laments that India rejects push for better ties. Thereby, the only avenue Pakistan had to keep itself credible and in the news seems to have vanished.

    After the initial noises made by KSA and their allies in GCC against Pakistan, they have suddenly become quite. They obviously do not want to push Pakistan in the arms of Iran.

    There will be a price to pay for Pakistan , we have to wait and see how they mend the fences with KSA.

    When the reality of the Chinese investment bubble bursts, the pakis will be left high and dry again. This time there won't be any Saudi to bail them out too. ...

    Have the Americans installed a new regime change patch in KSA?
    Things just might get interesting.

    then u'll b disappointed ~ at least construction of power plants r underway.

    our word is our bond - so as to convince other potential partners along the Silk Road that Chinese r ready to transfer the excessive industrial capacity and capital.

    China's outbound investment has exceeded FDI into China.

    Do u understand hindi? Watch what is being said in Pakistan about Chinese investment. And the truth is in front of everyone. China abandoned other projects in Pakistan when pakistan failed to provide any guarantor. Chinese interest is in Silk road but within pakistan itself there are lot of issues about the change in route of the proposed economic corridor and given the security constraints this doesn't augur well for pakistan.

    Xi told the Pakistanis not to worry even if there is a fallout with the Saudis. He told them that if Pak successfully implements the Economic Corridor, it won't need aid from Saudis or the West.

    Oh U sat next to She and heard every bit of their conversation?

    Forget not Pakistan has always been a helpful broker btwn China and the Arab world. Temporary wrinkles will b ironed out and Pakistan is not in an either-or trap.
