China, Vietnam, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia, Brunei, Indonesia. No I’m not just rattling off a bunch of random countries in the Asia Pacific region. These countries are all involved in the escalating south china sea territorial dispute. The relatively small, but hotly contested area of water is estimated to see over five trillion dollars’ worth of global trade passing through it each year. But it’s not just the value of trade passing through which has caused this spicy Asian hotpot. There’s also the fishing rights and most importantly the drilling rights in the region which are at stake. The South China sea is a largely unexplored region when it comes to mineral wealth, but the word on the waves is that there is as much as eleven billion barrels of oil and nine hundred trillion cubic feet of natural gas buried deep beneath them and China wants it all for itself. So how does this affect me you might be thinking. Surely at some point, the sea will get carved up between the claimants and we’ll all benefit from a few billion barrels more oil? Well it’s not that simple. Tensions run deep between many of the countries and last year, China decided to stamp its authority in the region by building what at first looked like a few artificial sandbanks. It turns out however, through the magic of satellite imagery, that China has built a military base on the islands surrounded by ground to air missile launchers and packed with enough aircraft hangars to store twenty-five fighter jets and five bombers. And if that’s not enough of a reason to heighten tensions in the region, China’s President Xi has asked military personnel to strengthen their awareness in preparing for war. Of course you can’t have a good war unless the US and Russia involve themselves somehow and you’ll be pleased to know they’ve done exactly that. In the months leading up to the US election, Steve Bannon the Chief Strategist in the Trump administration stated explicitly that the United States and China will fight a war within the next ten years over islands in the South China Sea. There was no doubt about it he said. And just to cement their commitment to the cause, China’s military warned that war between the two countries was a real possibility on the day of Trump’s inauguration. With Japan and Indonesia both having strong ties with the US, Mike Pence, Trump’s right hand man has recently been sent on a ten-day tour of duty to the region to assure allies of the US that they have their support. The US might be playing nice with China today as it tries to convince the administration to pull its finger out over North Korea, but if that doesn’t go to plan, you can expect Trump to go back to his previous rhetoric and take his anger out on China elsewhere and that could be in the South China sea. But the US won’t have it all their own way. Russia is of course, prodding the proverbial wasp nest with a giant stick. Putin has made it clear he sees China as a natural military ally and partner and has even joined them on exercises in the South China sea. But he’s also offered to join the Philippines on joint ventures in the very same South China Sea. Even more confusingly, Russia calls Vietnam a strategic military partner in the region. So what’s Putin’s game? Aside from the simple goal of being a thorn in the side of the US, it’s clear Putin is hedging his bets and has a lot to gain from the region if it all goes bang. Russian companies have invested heavily in mining and drilling companies in the region to make sure they have presence no matter who wins and they’re also looking to build additional military bases in the region. So what does this all mean for you and me as investors? Well, if China goes to war you can forget those five percent plus per annum growth figures. China’s focus will shift entirely to winning and that means the Chinese economy, which is already weighted with extraordinary amounts of debt, could go through the floor and drag the worldwide economy down with it. It’s also likely to have a catastrophic impact on the emerging markets in the region and on Japan which is still struggling to get back to its glory days of the nineteen eighties. But can we really expect the south china seas dispute to end in all-out war or am I guilty, like the tabloids, of letting my overzealous imagination cloud the facts? With the US and Russia in the mix, I think it’s fair to say anything can and probably will happen so if you’re seriously considering investing in the region, be very careful out there.

In his first year in office, Donald Trump turned out to be anything but the proverbial ‘bull in the China shop’ for China-U.S. relations. At Mar-a-Lago and again in Beijing during his ‘state-plus’ visit, Trump and Xi Jinping struck up a cordial and respectful relationship. But in the recently released National Security Strategy and National Defense Strategy, the Trump administration labeled China as a “revisionist power” and as an “economic aggressor.” Which face of Donald Trump will we see during the latter half of 2018?

India has launched its first nuclear submarine. With the launch, the country now joins the elite club of five nations which have nuclear-powered submarines. On Sunday, July 26, India launched its first nuclear-powered submarine, capable of firing ballistic missiles. For more news and videos visit ☛ http://ntd.tv Follow us on Twitter ☛ http://twitter.com/NTDTelevision Add us on Facebook ☛ http://on.fb.me/s5KV2C The Prime Minister's wife launched the nuclear-powered submarine traditionally by cracking the auspicious coconut on the hull of the vessel. The project is part of a $2.9 billion dollar plan to build five submarines. So far they have been delayed for years due to technical problems. Experts say India is modernising its armed forces and is focusing on improving its naval fleet, with new ships and submarines to counter the strategic interest of China in the region. [Manmohan Singh, Prime Minister]: "The sea is increasingly becoming relevant in the context of India's security interests and we must re-adjust our military preparedness to this changing environment. Our Navy, therefore, has a high responsibility in this." China is India's biggest trade partner in Asia. But India is wary of China's growing military might and fears its giant rival wants to strategically encircle India as Beijing continues to supply weapons to India's neighbors, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

This summer, China’s attempt to extend a road through the Doklam plateau, a disputed area near the borders of China, India, and Bhutan, led to an eight-week-long standoff between two of the most powerful countries in Asia. Despite $70 billion trade ties, China and India continue to view each other as adversaries. Numerous incursions and military standoffs have occurred across their 2,500 mile-long shared border. The deepening India-U.S. relationship is a source of concern in Beijing, while New Delhi and Washington are increasingly wary of close Sino-Pakistan ties, especially the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). On November 16, Hudson Institute’s South and Central Asia Program hosted a discussion on India-China relations with Dr. Manoj Joshi, a distinguished fellow with the Observer Research Foundation in New Delhi, and Dr. Aparna Pande, a research fellow and director of Hudson Institute's Initiative on the Future of India and South Asia.

Executing a Smarter Trade Strategy amidst Turbulence Global trade has moderated, the multilateral trade integration agenda has stalled, and new turbulences are putting a strain on globalization. In the industrialised West, societies are placing pressure on their governments to do more to ensure trade is working for more people. As a consequence, tendencies towards protectionism are on the rise especially in subtle forms like non-tariff and regulatory barriers. Amidst this, Sri Lanka is embarking on a new trade reform effort, anchored to tariff liberalisation, preferential trade agreements, and export promotion. Is this a foolhardy strategy? Can Sri Lanka win? What must be done to realistically push forward? With these trends in the West, how can Sri Lanka latch on to growth in Asia, using ASEAN as a pivot ?

Visit our site for defence news http://www.globalconflict.in/ This video shows you that India is aggressively challenging China in South Asia. Under its 'string of pearls' policy, China has long been trying to ring-fence India by building strategic and economic bases in smaller countries in the region. However, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been pursuing an aggressive policy to contain China in India's backyard. South Asia has become a battleground between the two powers as India seeks to challenge Chinese influence in its backyard. A few days ago, PM Modi attended the swearing-in ceremony of new Maldivian President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih. India-Maldives ties had come under strain under former president Abdulla Yameen who was perceived to be close to China. Some of his decisions, including the restrictions on work visas for Indians and signing of a new Free Trade Agreement with Beijing also did not go down well with New Delhi. The new government in Maldives has said it would pull out of a free trade agreement with China because it was a mistake for the tiny nation to strike such a pact with the world's second biggest economy. Yameen had signed the agreement during a visit to Beijing last year and the same month his parliament ratified the treaty despite opposition protests that he had rushed through the 1,000-page document in less than an hour without any debate. China has extended its influence in small countries in India's neighbourhood by funding infrastructure projects. However, since such funding has proved to be a debt trap, these countries have become wary of it which gives India a chance to strengthen economic ties with them. PM Modi's relentless efforts to minimise Chinese influence in India's neighbourhood has led to a continuous power struggle between the two countries. In Sri Lanka, India helped broker a coalition between Maithripala Sirisena and Ranil Wickremesinghe to remove Mahinda Rajapaksa from office 2015. Rajapakse had given China strategic entry into Sri Lanka, by leasing out Hambantota port to China and allowing it to build Colombo port and dock its submarines in Sri Lanka. Wickremesinghe reversed a few deals with China and even signed a deal with India to operate the Humbantota airport.

China held an international conference last month that has advanced its massive Belt and Road Initiative, which will build infrastructural, trade and other links to nearly 70 countries. In three of China’s neighbors—Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Burma—energy projects, ports, dams and other Chinese investments promise potential benefits. But they also have prompted protests connected to local political disputes or even ethnic insurgencies. Join USIP on June 20 for a discussion of the broad impact of Chinese investments in these three countries, whose stable evolution remains a U.S. interest.

Lao President Choummaly Sayasone says that Saysettha Development Zone would become a model for cooperation between China and Laos. Choummaly inspected Saysettha Development Zone in the capital Vientiane on Thursday. The zone is a state-level cooperative project developed by China's Yunnan Construction Engineering Group Co. and the government of Vientiane. Choummaly says he sincerely believes that the project would rapidly become a new demonstration zone for Sino-Lao cooperation. He says it would also contribute to the long-term friendly cooperation between the two countries. As the only state-level overseas economic trade and cooperation zone in Laos, the Saysettha Development Zone is hailed as an example of successful implementation of China's Belt and Road initiative. Choummaly also pointed out China has become the top country of investment in Laos and has made important contributions to the economic and social development of the country.

Though India will need to work much harder and beat China's money power to woo back smaller neighbouring countries, Modi's 'neighbourhood first' policy has been aggressively at work. A few months ago, China had to scrap a hydroelectric project in Nepal due to the daunting cost of resettling thousands of families. But the real reason is said to be India. India reportedly told Nepal it would not buy electricity from that project, and China could not rely on a small Nepalese market. India's best hope is that the neighbouring countries grow doubtful about China's infrastructure funding. That's already happening. Bangladesh is building the 20-kilometre-long rail and road bridges over Padma river with its own money despite the lure of ready Chinese funds. While some Chinese firms are involved in the execution of the project selected through tenders, the initiative has no exposure to Chinese funds. Bangladesh has been cautious in accepting loans from China and has on occasions rejected Chinese firms vying for infrastructure projects and even blacklisted Chinese firms.

This video shows you that 7 Countries Object To China's BRI Initiative Including Pakistan. China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), which aims to build a trade and infrastructure network connecting Asia with Europe and Africa along the ancient trade routes of Silk Road, has hit a roadblock in seven countries, according to a recent report. The Gwadar Port in Pakistan's Balochistan province is the venue of the USD 63 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). China is developing Pakistan's power plants, airports, highways and other infrastructure under the project. Also, Beijing aims to link its landlocked western region to Gwadar. Despite this, some analysts have expressed concerns such as rising trade deficit of Pakistan with China. There are also doubts on how Islamabad will repay off its debt to Beijing if the former is unable to do so. Also, there are worries that the price of such investment can be a huge debt burden, according to the report by Nikkei Asian Review. "The China-Pakistan corridor will no doubt be a game changer for Pakistan, but we need to be careful. Ten years' tax concessions, 90-year leases for Chinese companies and cheap imports will impact the competitiveness of existing domestic industries," Nikkei Asian Review quoted Ehsan Malik, the CEO of Pakistan Business Council, a business policy advocacy forum, as saying. Nikkei Asian Review and The Banker magazine have published a detailed report on the status of the BRI projects in seven countries - Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Kazakhstan, Bangladesh, Poland, Laos and Pakistan. The report also deduces the concerns of these countries ranging from a lack of participation by local workers and banks to unmanageable debts. In Indonesia, the BRI project has been experiencing serious delays. Construction on a USD 6 billion railway line is running behind schedule, coupled with rising costs. This has been the same scenario in Kazakhstan and Bangladesh. In terms of deficits, concerns have been raised about owing unmanageable debts to China in Sri Lanka, the Maldives and Laos, along with Pakistan. As per the report, Beijing's massive economic project is also plagued with sovereignty concerns. In Sri Lanka, China's takeover of the Hambantota Port has raised eyebrows over the "loss of sovereignty." ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: Each and every content used in this video is not imaginary.

INTRODUCTION: Vietnam’s Defense Minister Ngo Xuan Lich met with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on August 8, a much-anticipated meeting that had been postponed from its original date. The two took stock of defense ties to date and agreed to deepen cooperation in several areas, including more naval engagement and information sharing. Though they discussed a wide range of issues in their bilateral defense ties during, the biggest headline item that emerged was the first visit of a U.S. aircraft carrier to Vietnam, set for next year. Although the sides didn’t release any further details, the aircraft carrier is likely to dock in Cam Ranh Bay, the Vietnamese base that the U.S. Navy used extensively during the Vietnam War. Notably in October 2016, two U.S. warships, the submarine tender USS Frank Cable and guided-missile destroyer USS John S. McCain, docked in Cam Ranh Bay. The decision indicates a growing relation between US and Vietnam and is sure to upset China. Sino Vietnamese relation has hit new lows in recent times mainly because China’s hostile behavior over South China Sea disputes. In this video, Defense Updates analyzes the background and helps viewers understand the significance of the move. Lets get started. BACKGROUND United States and Vietnam have a broad defense relationship, built in line with the gradual normalization of ties that has taken place since 1995 when U.S. President Bill Clinton was in office. Cooperation has slowly grown to encompass areas including maritime security, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief and peacekeeping. Bilateral defense relations have also been strengthening over the past few years as part of a broader comprehensive partnership signed in 2013 under former U.S. President Barack Obama, who presided over the historic lifting of a decades-old arms embargo on Vietnam toward the end of his presidency. The positive momentum in U.S.-Vietnam ties appears to be continuing under the new administration of U.S. President Donald Trump so far. A string of high-level visits have already gotten underway quickly, including the White House visit of Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc in May. President Trump has also committed to going to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit (APEC) in Vietnam this November, and there has been a series of moves in the maritime security domain, including the handing over of patrol boats and a Coast Guard cutter as well as U.S. port visits and other naval engagements. CHINA FACTOR China has maintained very high economic growth over the last 20 years & has become a major economic power. It has spent heavily on military buildup & modernized its military forces. SOUTH CHINA SEA DISPUTE China’s sweeping claims of sovereignty over the sea have infuriated competing claimants Malaysia, Brunei, Taiwan, Indonesia, the Philippines as well as Vietnam. United States, Japan, Australia and India favor freedom of navigation as it is a very important sea route with 5 trillion $ in trade, half of global merchant shipping and 1/2 of world’s oil shipment pass through it. The sea also has alleged 11 billion barrels of untapped oil and 190 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. CHINESE TACTICS China has tried to change the territorial status quo gradually, island-by-island instead of trying to capture in one go. For example, China first occupied the Paracel Islands in 1974 and then slowly expanded its presence southward by attacking Vietnam’s islands in the Spratly chain in the 1980s. This strategy known as salami slicing, aims for slow accumulation of small changes. AIRCRAFT CARRIER Though details are not divulged, it is most likely that US will send one of it 10 Nimitz class carrier. Nimitz class carriers been one of the most important asset of the US armed forces and has enabled power projection far off from the US homeland. These displace about 100,000 tons when fully loaded, can move faster than 30 knots and carry more than 60 combat aircraft. CONCLUSION: It is the greatest of irony that a communist nation seeks support from America to counter belligerence and aggression from another communist nation. America under Trump has already stepped up the game with increase in frequency of Freedom of Navigation Operations as well as initiating investigation in illegal trade practices of China. While Vietnam has been careful to calibrate how quickly it pushes its defense ties with Washington – as they often need to be weighed against other considerations such as domestic politics as well as the balancing of its foreign relationships, the pace has been decent. The fact that moves like an aircraft carrier visit are being agreed to speaks for itself, in terms of Vietnam’s assessment of the current regional security environment and how it will pursue its interests and its alignments with major powers.

Public Lecture by Emeritus Professor Paul Dibb and Adjunct Associate Professor John Lee. The belief that China will soon become the dominant power in Asia is based on assumptions that its continued and rapid economic rise, and its emergence as a regional peer of America’s in military terms is all but assured. Such a belief underpins arguments that a fundamental strategic reorganisation of Asia is inevitable, and that it will be necessary and perhaps even desirable to concede to China significant ‘strategic space’. Dependent largely on linear extrapolations about the future, such arguments ignore the implications of China’s economic, social and national fragilities, its lack of major friends or allies in the region as well as the considerable military deficiencies and challenges faced by the People’s Liberation Army. With the Defence White Paper due for release in 2015, the government should bear in mind that planning for an era of Chinese dominance in the region—or even its emergence as an American strategic peer in Asia—would be premature if not improbable. Australia should not design its defence force for war with China, but it should be able to counter Chinese coercion and contribute to Allied military operations if necessary. Paul Dibb is Emeritus Professor of Strategic Studies in the Strategic & Defence Studies Centre, Coral Bell schol of Asia-Pacific Affairs, ANU. He was head of the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre from 1991 to 2004. Before that he held the positions of deputy secretary for Defence, director of the Joint Intelligence Organisation and head of the National Assessments Staff. He studied the former Soviet Union for over 20 years both as a senior intelligence officer and academic. He advised ASIO on certain Soviet activities. His book The Soviet Union--the Incomplete Superpower was published by the International Institute for Strategic Studies , London in 1986, reprinted 1987 and second edition 1988. John Lee is an Australian academic working on international economic and security affairs with a focus on the Asia-Pacific. Lee is an adjunct associate professor at the Australian National University's Strategic and Defence Studies Centre, a Michael Hintze Fellow at the Centre for International Security Studies, University of Sydney and a senior scholar at the Hudson Institute in Washington, DC. Lee is a board member of the Institute for Regional Security.

This video shows you that UN Issues Warning :: China's OBOR Could Drag South Asia Into Debt Trap. The United Nations, close on the heels of OBOR Summit between May 14-16, has raised a red flag over economic, financial, social and environmental risks of China's Belt & Road Initiative (BRI) across a number of countries that are part of the mega connectivity project. A recently concluded UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific Study (UNESCAP) has warned of financial risks in countries in south and central Asia where China's announced investment value under BRI is high compared to the relative size of the economy of the recipient country. The $15 billion China-Uzbekistan investment deal signed in late 2013 is roughly equivalent to a quarter of Uzbekistan's GDP. Similarly, the $37 billion China-Kazakhstan cooperation agreement signed in late 2014 and early 2015 and the $46 billion China-Pakistan agreement in April 2015 each represent over a fifth of GDP level in Kazakhstan and Pakistan, according to the UN study. China's commitment to Pakistan has now reached $ 62 billion. Similarly, the $24 billion China-Bangladesh agreement in October 2016 is equivalent to almost 20% of Bangladesh's GDP. "External account indicators for some of these economies are relatively weak. In Kazakhstan, the current account deficit amounted to about 6% of GDP in 2016, while external debt stood at over 80% of GDP in 2015. In Pakistan, foreign external reserves are rather small at about 4 months of imports in early 2017," said the report. "Relatively easy access to large foreign loans for infrastructure projects, even if most of them tend to be on a concessional basis, can lead to risks through a slight deterioration in trade balance, undermining macroeconomic and balance of payments stability in small economies with underdeveloped financial markets and less effective debt management," the study said regarding the nature of the Chinese loans. It is no secret that Sri Lanka has run into a huge debt trap by welcoming Chinese funded projects. Sri Lankan debt exceeds $60 billion, more than 10 percent of that is owed to the Chinese. To resolve its debt crisis, the Sri Lankan government agreed to convert its debt into equity. This may lead to Chinese ownership of the projects finally. american foreign policy, china and india, china and japan, china and us, china foreign policy, china india, china india relations, china japan, china military, china us relations, foreign policy of china, india and china, india china, india china relations, india japan, india japan relations, india russia relations, india us relations, japan china, japan india, pak china relations, us and china, us china relations, us china relationship Source: https://goo.gl/ncbrMu ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: Each and every content used in this video is not imaginary.

There’s good news for India from the Indian Ocean nation of the Maldives. And it comes primarily in the form of its new president, Ibrahim Solih, being sworn in last Saturday after defeating the incumbent, Abdulla Yameen, against all odds. Solih, upon taking up presidentship, almost immediately sought a review of China-backed projects in the archipelago nation. After Sri Lanka and Malaysia, Maldives is another country in the region whose people have expressed its opposition to their country’s leadership signing up for projects with China under the latter’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and has led to a debt trap. Change in the Maldivian regime, however, isn’t going to bring any relief to countries that have taken substantial Chinese loans already and cannot service the debt. Sri Lanka already lost the Hambantota port when it signed a lease agreement with China on a 99-year lease for $1.12 billion. Projects like the ‘Friendship Bridge’ in Male have already been completed, and others are underway. Already, over 70% of Maldives’ foreign debt is owed to China, of which the loan interest alone is more than 20% of the country’s budget. Malaysia cancelled all its projects with China before they could reach a stage where pullout was impossible. Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad described the decision to avoid “a new version of colonialism”. His statement quite appropriately sums up what China has been doing in countries that have signed up for BRI. This presents a problem for other powers such as India whose security is undermined by China’s ‘debt trap’ strategy. There are genuine requirements in many countries to improve their infrastructure and boost economic growth. But lack of resources and requisite knowhow hold them back. Many rely on foreign funding and companies to do this. China uses its economic muscle to pursue its ambitious BRI, reportedly a $1 trillion project. Its capacity to execute large projects at a fast pace makes ‘joining’ attractive for some countries. India, the US, Japan and Australia who form the Quadrilateral — Quad —have pledged to help infrastructure and connectivity projects, and to keep the oceans free and open. In July, the US, Japan and Australia announced a trilateral partnership to build infrastructure, address development challenges, increase connectivity and promote economic growth. India has extended line of credit to several countries, and has also executed infrastructure and capacity-building projects. India and Japan signed the Asia-Africa Growth Corridor (AAGC) with four main components: development and cooperation projects, quality infrastructure and institutional connectivity, capacity and skill enhancement, and people-to-people partnerships to promote growth and development. India has also initiated talks with the US to partner it in joint investment in infrastructure development, energy, transport, tourism and technology. While members of the Quad either on their own, or in bilateral or trilateral forms, have announced funds to assist countries in the region, they need to come together as a group to synergise the effort. It is India’s opposition — due to its undue respect for Chinese sensitivities — which has so far prevented this. India should shed this fear. The Quad will have to deepen its engagement with the smaller countries to understand their needs and aspirations that have been exploited by China so far. India faces issues in its neighbourhood, just like Australia has, of late, realised that it had neglected and failed to understand the needs of its neighbouring Pacific island nations — till the possibility of a Chinese military base there made it see reason.

Make India An Enemy And You Will Lose Your Lifeline, Chinese Experts Caution Beijing Over Doklam. Apart from raising tensions between India and China, the Doklam standoff could potentially threaten Beijing’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), Chinese scholars and experts have warned for the first time.Macau-based military expert Antony Wong Dong has cautioned that Beijing’s hardball politics are pushing New Delhi further away and could end up making it an enemy. “China is playing psychological warfare… but it should realise that even if it defeated India in a war on land, it would be impossible for the PLA navy to break India’s maritime containment,” Wong told Hong Kong-based English daily South China Morning Post (SCMP), pointing to the importance of the Indian Ocean as a commercial lifeline. China is largely reliant on imported fuel and, according to figures published by Chinese state media, more than 80% of its oil imports sail through the Indian Ocean or Strait of Malacca. “Unlike Southeast Asian countries, India has never succumbed to China’s ‘carrot and stick’ strategies,” Wong said. “India is strategically located at the heart of China’s energy lifeline and the ‘Belt and Road Initiative’, and offending India will only push it into the rival camp, which [Beijing believes] is scheming to contain China by blocking the Malacca Strait and the Indian Ocean.” Sun Shihai, an adviser to the Chinese Association for South Asian Studies, expressed similar sentiments. He told SCMP that he was concerned that the worst military stand-off in more than three decades would fuel anti-Chinese sentiment in India, as mistrust and hostility between the two countries run deep. “If not properly handled, the border row could have a long-term impact on China’s efforts to expand its diplomatic and economic influence beyond the Asia-Pacific region with its “Belt and Road Initiative”, he said, adding, “India is one of the most important strategic partners for China’s ‘Belt and Road Initiative’ because of its geographic location.” “Beijing has been trying to lure India to join ‘Belt and Road’ projects because both countries stand to benefit from them strategically and economically. [But] The latest tensions have soured bilateral ties and the growing mistrust will only make New Delhi more reluctant to make a decision,” Sun claimed.It may be recalled that Delhi boycotted the BRI Summit in Beijing in May on the grounds that China-Pak-Eco-Corridor under BRI violates India’s sovereignty and that the initiative lacks transparency.Referring to India’s position on BRI at the maiden Indo-US Forum here on Monday night, Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj said, “…We have also outlined the principles that should be adhered to in undertaking connectivity initiatives, including ensuring respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity.” american aircraft carriers, china aircraft carrier, china carrier, china navy, china new aircraft carrier, china submarine, china vs us military, china vs usa military, chinese aircraft carrier, chinese navy, chinese navy news, chinese navy ships, chinese navy vs us navy, chinese submarines, indian navy vs chinese navy, new aircraft carrier, pla navy, us navy china, us vs china military, usa vs china military ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: Each and every content used in this video is not imaginary.

The report also deduces the concerns of these countries ranging from a lack of participation by local workers and banks to unmanageable debts. In Indonesia, the BRI project has been experiencing serious delays. Construction on a USD 6 billion railway line is running behind schedule, coupled with rising costs. This has been the same scenario in Kazakhstan and Bangladesh. In terms of deficits, concerns have been raised about owing unmanageable debts to China in Sri Lanka, the Maldives and Laos, along with Pakistan. As per the report, Beijing's massive economic project is also plagued with sovereignty concerns. In Sri Lanka, China's takeover of the Hambantota Port has raised eyebrows over the "loss of sovereignty." In 2008, former Sri Lankan president Mahinda Rajapaksa had ordered the construction of the USD 1.5 billion Hambantota Port. Colombo has granted a 99-year lease on the port to China Merchants Port Holdings in a bid to eliminate its debts. The first phase of the project, which ended in 2010, costs USD 361 million. The Export-Import Bank of China financed 85 percent of the work during the first phase. The Sri Lankan Government found itself unable to repay its debts as the port's losses started piling up. The country had an external debt of USD 48.3 billion in 2017-end, and its annual external financing needs are USD 11 billion. Colombo owes a debt of USD 8 billion to Beijing and is said to carry an interest rate of 6 percent, according to the report. In 2009, Rajapaksa flagged off the construction of Sri Lanka's second international airport in Mattala, situated 20km from the port. Of the USD 209 million construction cost, the Exim Bank of China put up USD 190 million with a concessionary loan. The Mattala airport is now known as "the world's emptiest international airport" since it has only four regular flights arriving and departing per week. The Sri Lankan government has plans to sell off the airport as it is mounting losses. Source :- ET Background Music :- bensound.com Disclaimer- This channel is for defence related news worldwide .

This video shows you that China Is Building Very 21st Century Empire Delhi On Alert. Support Us: Buy Smartphone: https://amzn.to/2NZG9hK OnePlus 6: https://amzn.to/2OtbHhf Honor 7x: https://amzn.to/2Kg98f1 China is building a very 21st century empire-one where trade and debt lead the way, not armadas and boots on the ground.If President Xi Jinping’s ambitions become a reality, Beijing will cement its position at the center of a new world economic order spanning more than half the globe. Already, China has extended its influence far beyond that of the Tang Dynasty’s golden age more than a millennium ago. The most tangible manifestation of Xi’s designs is the new Silk Road he first proposed in 2013. The enterprise morphed into the “Belt and Road” initiative, a mix of foreign policy, economic strategy, and charm offensive that, nurtured by a torrent of Chinese money, is rebalancing global political and economic alliances. Xi calls the grand initiative “a road for peace.” Other world powers such as Japan and the U.S. remain skeptical about its stated aims and even more worried about unspoken ones, especially those hinting at military expansion. To assess the reality of Belt and Road from the ground up, Bloomberg Markets deployed a team of reporters to five cities on three continents at the forefront of China’s grand plan. What emerges is a picture of mostly poor nations-laggards during the past half-century of global growth-that jumped at the promise of Chinese-financed projects they hoped would help them catch up. And yet as some high-profile ones falter and the cost of their Chinese funding rises, would-be beneficiaries from Hambantota, Sri Lanka, to Piraeus, Greece, are questioning the long-term price. In Malaysia, one of the biggest recipients of Chinese investment in Southeast Asia, newly installed Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad is pushing back. Expressing concerns about loan conditions and the use of Chinese labor that limit benefits to the local economy, he’s put billions of dollars of Chinese-funded rail and pipeline projects on hold.

English/Nat An expert at the University of Indonesia says the country's financial problems are now causing a health crisis. Prices of imported medical supplies have skyrocketed and some hospitals are running out of drugs. The shortages are even reported to be costing lives. Some of Indonesia's hospitals are running out of drugs and medical supplies. The shortages range from the thread used for stitching up wounds to modern anaesthetics. In some cases doctors are resorting chloroform to put patients under - risky procedure only used as a last resort nowadays. Imported drugs are fast running out. Foreign companies are wary of extending credit to hospitals in Indonesia. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Life saving drugs is very very scarce now and then other drugs like antibiotics I think the government said that they will be there in one or two months but what will happen in that time I think we face a very serious problem in the drug business in Indonesia." SUPER CAPTION: Alex Papilaya, Chief, Medical Administration Studies, University of Indonesia There have been reports that donated blood can no longer be screened for the AIDS virus, as the imported tests are too expensive. The government has been trying to reassure the public and is encouraging them to go to smaller community-funded clinics. Public hospitals are said to be in the best shape, as the government's purchasing power can help them stay stocked. But private hospitals are either not stocking certain items or passing on increased costs of up to 500 percent higher to their patients. The sick are also reported to be paying with their lives. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Some of the patients now they have given up and I think they will suffer a lot - this is only drugs. But for life saving equipment for example for haemodialysis and kidney patients I think you have read in the newspapers already that four people have died and I think there will be more deaths because the supply is still a problem" SUPER CAPTION: Alex Papilaya, Chief, Medical Administration Studies, University of Indonesia The Jakarta government says it has come up with a plan to lower costs and save lives. It is putting together a consortium of doctors, hospitals and pharmacies to purchase drugs in bulk at lower prices. But there are doubts in the medical community about the effectiveness of the proposals. SOUNDBITE: (English) "If there is no emergency actions to handle this I believe that it can happen but if all of the plan can goes in a good way and a good procedure and then we can get that kind of medicine as soon as possible yes we can handle it of course" SUPER CAPTION: Merdias Almatsier - President Indonesian Medical Association The shortages and rising costs are also hitting small, independent pharmacies. Their shelves are fast emptying - and with nothing to sell they would fast go out of business. SOUNDBITE: (Bahasa Indonesia) "It's clear there are no drugs and those that are around come at high prices. it is difficult to find many items." SUPER CAPTION: Armen - Pharmacist Big drug chains have an easier time keeping their supplies up. They can afford the higher costs and their shelves appear full. But at a price the poor can't afford. The rich will be able to pay for the treatment and drugs they need, But for the less well off - Indonesia's financial crisis could cost them more than just their jobs and scant savings.
