Lol what?

Let us start with Tajikistan

View attachment 102328

Chinese have overwhelming influence over tajikstan. Tajikistan owes 1.3 billion USD to the Exim Bank of China, which is 40 percent of the total foreign debt of Tajikistan.

They also maintain a military base in that country.


Let us take an other example Kyrgyzstan

View attachment 102331

China is accounted for 45.3% of Kyrgyzstan's external debt (May 2019).

Same goes for Kazakhstan Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan whose percentage varies between 10-25%.

One must also remember that most central Asian countries have china as one of their largest trading partners. China corporations control most of the gold mineral hydrocarbon plants in these countries.

View attachment 102335

All these combinations combined given china overwhelming influence in Central asia.

Afghanistan clearly is the next logical step.
Not Just the CAR, even eastern Europeans are going with China, Chinese influence is high there as a part of their bloody Silk road, they trapped the leaders with Cash, its the EU now fighting back

These are dubious stats. The products you are selling are mainly western products manufactured in china. The profit margins are mainly of contract manufacturing for china which is just 10 to 15 % of the actual trade deficit.

How many chinese products are being manufactured which are global brands and give you profits.

These are rough estimates
Even with India if we estimate 80 Billion dollar trade deficit. More than 50 Billion dollars goes to western countries and 30 Billion to China. In that if we subtract manual labour costs, electricity and raw material close to 15 Billion is what China earns from India. Which can be nullified

1) If India demands to Manufacture what ever it wants to sell to India in India.
2) cut down the cheap imports like toys and other small daily utility and plastic items.

China tries to flaunt what it not and it does not have.

All china is doing is occupying resources which has growth potential. In the name of OBOR and digital revolution.

It was not a accidental fire .. siddiqui was chased . Captured from mosque where he was treated for sharpnel injury . Then was beaten before being fired upon with bullets . The picture we see is before his body was mutilated after he was dead . ...

Probably Taliban was angry due to some negetive coverage in indian media and wanted to take revange whn chance is presented .

China is demanding to hand over Taliban commander Haji Furqan, a Chinese national from Xinjiang and senior leader of ETIM who led recent offensive in Wakhan Corridor in Northern Afghanistan. Taliban have reportedly refused to comply on the demands.
Is there a source?

They are pulling the capitol to invest in their own country, which indicates either they are cutting their losses or they lost the privilege the US has given to them.

China is export driven economy, what ever they make they have to export it. they have banked on Huawei and 5 G as their next trump card, previously it was infra. Now those plans are in jeopardy.

They are loosing the manufacturing edge. They are restructuring their economy to become consumption based. All this points to the fact that China is not betting on foreign ventures specially in a place called Afghanistan which gives no returns.

They are playing a strategic game in Afghanistan, economy and prosperity as just a buzz word coming from China not a reality.

The big economic gamble of close to1 Trillion did not give them returns. OBOR is almost stalled.

They thought they can buy strategic assets like ports, land and companies and wanted to integrate it to their manufacturing base in main land. They now realized it is not their game.

Specially in Afghanistan, what China wants to do is like what they did to Pakistan in the name of CPEC. Occupy strategic points and then black mail the host country for access and accommodate Hans.

Regarding my knowledge, what ever you have said.

I want to know about you, what are you?

you might be that pizza general who sold his country trying to sell CPEC and fake dreams?

China develops Afghanistan and Central Asia, have you ever checked the GDP and GDP percapita and the investment opportunities of these republics ?
Afghanistan has no value to us,

As long as Afghanistan does not have Xinjiang independence activities, how does Afghanistan matter to China?
Afghanistan has $4 trillions worth natural resources and is a potential gateway between Central Asia, Middle east, East Asia and Indian subcontinent.

Hadn't Pakistan created Taliban causing civil war and millions of deaths, the fate of Afghanistan would have been different today.

Our One Belt One Road passes through Kazakhstan and Pakistan. What does it have to do with Afghanistan? If the Taliban want some food, we will give it some, nothing more

Then why your leadership is inviting UN designated terrorist outfit in Beijing?

Afghanistan is not one homogeneous entity. It is divided into many small tribes who are controlled by corrupt and violent warlords. So Afghanistan collectively won't do any terror activity in China but these warlords have their own interpretation of things and how they react and whome they target, nobody knows.

This is the reason why US and India are worried about situation in Afghanistan. If it falls back to being a terrorists safe haven, no one will be safe.

As told before, OBOR doesn't pass through AFG right now since it's unstable. As situations are changing, China is trying to engage with ruling class to exploit opportunities.

Chinese companies already have mining rights in certain regions in afghanistan. They also have set up factories in afghanistan way back in 2013 itself and from then on expanded their areas of operations elsewhere.

It seems the aim is to use the mineral resources of central asia to help china gain fuel its economy and gain monopoly in the sector.
