As China opens its One Belt One Road summit, anti-CPEC protests erupt in PoK
The sullen child attitude does not work in the real politick & economics of the World.
India must engage & contribute positively and then gain from within to isolate or marginalise it’s detractors like Pakistan, rather than refuse and face redundancy.
With so much trading already taking place with Pakistan, what is the harm in adding more, to gain access to whole new markets in Central Asia & Eastern Europe, areas where China and Russia have to have an upper hand in any case?
Geo-strategic alignments which are never permanent, like with USSR then & the West now, cannot be allowed to ruin this opportunity.
India must partake of this opportunity and many other possibilities that will emerge from this corridor rather than dash them on imaginary anvils of Western Economies alone.
