Political leaders all over Pakistan worry that the leadership of world’s number one superpower, USA, is suffering from short memory. Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on CPEC and Chairman Pakistan-China Institute, Senator Mushahid Hussain Sayed has pointed out that US defense Secretary’s statement is a U-turn from US’ participation in the OBOR Summit. He has further said that opposition of US to OBOR is a historic mistake of the American establishment and reflects short-sightedness of the US leadership.
Chairman, CPEC Parliamentary Committee Senator Mushahid Hussain Sayed has pointed out the short memory of the US leadership saying that the US had officially participated in OBOR summit and now US Defence Secretary has come out with a statement opposing it which ironically echoes toeing of Indian line by Washington. He has further remarked that the opposition to OBOR is a historic mistake of the American Establishment and reflects short-sightedness and forgetfulness of the US leadership.
India is opposed to CPEC right from its being launched and do not let any opportunity go by without trying to thwarting and raising objections in a quite baselessly and rather ridiculously also. It is already an acknowledged and duly recognized and appreciated fact that the multi-billion CPEC project is going to link Gwadar to China’s Xinjiang province through vast network of highways and railways which New Delhi and Washington nexus in a devilish manner is opposing in a sinister manner. But their evil designs are bound to fail miserably as both China and Pakistan are committed and determined to make OBOR and CPEC great success for the betterment, prosperity and progress of their people and also those of the region as well..
