Pakistan responds to China seeking military access to Gwadar port

need be mentioned that Gwadar is in the southwestern province of Baluchistan

Amid the difficult phase that Pakistan is going through in terms of its economy, the country has clarified that China has not asked for military access to Pakistan’s Chinese-funded, deepwater port of Gwadar.

The confirmation came about from a senior Pakistani rear admiral.

This is despite the fact that there are serious apprehensions in the international community that Gwadar will eventually become a Chinese naval base.

It need be mentioned that Gwadar is in the southwestern province of Baluchistan.

The plan is to turn Gwadar into a trans-shipment hub and megaport to be built alongside special economic zones from which export-focused industries will ship goods worldwide.

A web of energy pipelines, roads and rail links will connect Gwadar to China’s western regions.

China opened its first overseas military base, which it formally calls a logistics facility, in the Horn of Africa country Djibouti last year.
