China Denies Contacts with Separatist Militants in Pakistan
Friday, 23 February 2018 04:21 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Chinese officials have denied reports that they are in contact with separatist militants in Pakistan's restive Baluchistan province to secure tens of billions of dollars' worth of infrastructure projects planned for the area.

A report in the Financial Times this week said that quiet talks between the two sides had been ongoing for five years and that Beijing had been in direct contact with the militants.

However, a senior Chinese official dealing with the region said he had œnever heard of it. The official did not want his name mentioned in the media.

Sher Muhammad Bugti, a representative of a separatist group the Baluch Republican Party, also denied having any negotiations with China.

However, some other separatist leaders have demurred from issuing a similar denial.

China is planning the largest segment of its One Belt One Road initiative in Pakistan called the China Pakistan Economic Corridor. The primary aim of the network of roads and railway lines is to connect Xinjiang province in Western China through Pakistan to the Indian ocean.
