News is brought to you Buy some for Solaris. Let's say good morning to ABC. Aaron Carter Ski Aaron. This next story is the stuff movies are made of. You've got a New York City police officer. He's also an Army reservist at Fort Dix. So on paper you talk about patriot you talk about, you know, protecting and serving, and now he's been arrested, is acting as an agent for China. Who is this guy? This guy's by Margie on long. He's an ethnic Tibetan and, according to federal prosecutors, Jen he ended up becoming an illegal agent for the People's Republic of China, in fact, referred to himself as an asset of China. And according to prosecutors, he would spy on other ethnic Tibetans in and around New York City. And would you know kind of keep tabs on what these people were doing on behalf of the Chinese Consulate in New York? What in the world? Were these people doing that they needed to be spied upon? Well, nothing really. They were just existing. But of course with Tibet and China on the historically fraught relationship. Apparently the Chinese want to keep tabs on people in On Tibetans to make sure they're not doing anything untoward or anything that could potentially damage China, or perhaps speak out in the United States about about China or about treatment of their relatives, so on long presented himself to a Chinese consular officials As someone who could help and who could use his position in the NYPD E to further the interests of China because he would have the power to either maybe question people to an extent that others wouldn't or he'd have access to things. You could see how he could show himself as an asset. And of course, using his position that way is it is it is not proper. He also, according to prosecutors allied to the military. When he failed to disclose how his brother was in the People's Liberation Army in China and how his father was part of the Communist Party in China. So all that together, gets in these federal charges, and he was arrested yesterday at his home All my island. He you know, is kind of a decorated officer. He's been the community liaison officer in this precinct in Queens. One of the few ethnic Tibetans in the department on DH, someone who can reach out on behalf of that community on DH. Of course, he was doing it now on behalf of China, according to the feds, and No, no. Do they think that the US has anything to worry about? Was he able to get any information that could be compromising to us? Doesn't appear so he may have given the Chinese consular officials some some insight into the inner workings of the NYPD. But I'm not sure how useful that that ultimately would prove to be It's more that he was not Frank about who you know who he and his family were, but also that he was appeared to have divided loyalties. And then when they did arrest him as he admitted to all of this in the sense of his, he said, Yeah, Here's what I did. And here's what I'm doing and do, do they, eh? Did he admit to it and B? Do they think that he's got any accomplices? Uh, he he did not admit to anything that we know of. He was arrested yesterday. If you're briefly in court did not enter. A plea on DH was held without bail. We don't know whether he had accomplices. Court records on Leigh mention unnamed consular officials. India in the Chinese consulate in New York, one of those officials on long apparently referred to as boss. That's easy enough. Does he have a family? We've got a family We know of in China on DH, apparently a connected with the Chinese Communist Party, his brothers and the People's Liberation Army. But we don't I don't think he has any family here. He's not mentioned in in court records. Right. So the the you know whether he was doing this Because he thought it don't mean something in China. Whether he thought he was doing this for because he was somehow recruited. That part wasn't exactly spelled out in court records. All right, Aaron, thanks for the update on this, So I'm just kind of just a weird story. That's It's crazy. You know, the spy within, you know, he'd say course, made the front cover of the New York Post as such sure the posting could never. They never fail. All right, Erin, thanks so much. See you later. That's a B C's Aaron Carter Ski It's just weird. So I don't know how much information he really was able to give. He put your life on the line to go. Eh? No, Tibetans. They're doing anything back to you. Boss. All right. To each his own. But you got caught, buddy. Let's get back to some of the stories we're watching in the fight..

Long, island works for the NYPD, the army reserves, and in some capacity is also at least performed with the Marines as well. And he is accused of being a Chinese spy and not only is he accused of being a Chinese by the evidence is very overwhelming. Angling is a naturalized to Betton living in America and he began contacting the Chinese consulate in New York in twenty fourteen in twenty, thousand eighteen. He began just full on spying for across all of his security clearance clearances and all of the jobs he held That included getting into NYPD databases information for the Communist Party. Inviting Communist Party members to. NYPD events spying on fellow Tibetan Americans mostly in Queens. Reporting, their activity back to the Chinese consulate, the Chinese can't leave Tibet alone. Can they? Come on China. And spy on them after they come over and and using one of them as the spy, which is interesting like a jealous boyfriend that got broken up with that still following Tibetans around in new. York City like let it go buddy. Clearly insane. Yeah. The stuff the stuff that he's he's he's doing basically. Just, everything he was performing all spying on all of these US institutions to bring glory to China. That's what he would always say on the tapes they have recordings of him talking to his handler. Sixty Times. Despite claiming asylum to stay here in the United States saying that he was captured and tortured and China due to his Tibetan ethnicity. So he lied to claim asylum to stay in America saying he was tortured by the Chinese to then become a spy within the NYPD, the army reserves and potentially something that's. This guy sounds like he's a smooth gorgeous TRAE, right? Operator. Must have been very smooth because. His ass off you got into a lot of a lot of institutions there. I mean, anyways, his neighbors on Long Island are shocked. Because he's such a nice guy but now he's facing fifty five years in prison. Because they have them on tape like I said. Spying on all of his neighbors who are so shocked now for the last six years or so. So soft corner for this Dickhead and Wang and any other foreign spies living in the USA fuck all you guys. The FBI has probably watching. So I love that turning what? What's sad pieces of surely spiders ass off. He really did I. Mean You got you got deep in their into a Lotta Shit like. Going away for a while. If. A. Assuming. It's true. But they're saying they all these tapes of him talking like they had alleged this shit. Trees. These tapes so punishable by death guys. Let's talk about predict it real quick. So Predicted, plus Regan bet on the stock market and it's like the stock market of politics. You Bet News in politics. Fantastic.

Go to that link up for New Count Throw Twenty Bucks in your account Bam we match it free twenty. We reached out to predict it about getting some some markets up for the debates on September twenty nine. So look forward to that guy's updates on that but to markets like right now, when will the Senate vote on confirmation of the next Supreme Court nominee? Before November third is seventy one cents a little bit of information here guys. We are forty two days away from November third and It took exactly that long to confirm Ruth Bader GINSBURG and we have no nominee right now trump said he will announce his nominee on Saturday but is going to be a tight timeline. I also WANNA point out that are Congress are pieces of Human Dog Shit and have still not past any sort of a second stimulus bill. Will drop everything Oh to to to make sure that a supreme court nominee gets through on the conservative. Yet total. Argue over the people. Let's do some selfish ask political play that'll help us down the line. You piece of Shit. Congress. Listen to fuck up you assholes. Who will be the next prime court nominee. By the way before number thirty before November thirds at seventy one right now, who will be the next nominee? Amy. Coney Barrett is it seventy eight cents? I can't figure out why she's leading.

Elaine Pearson on free speech at UNSW

"Battle of free speech on Australian University campuses. Allying piece was interviewed by the Media Department at the University of new. South. Wales about the human rights implications of Hong. Kong's new national security role as. Director at Human Rights Watch and an adjunct law lecturer at the university. She expressed concern about the laws and called on the United Nations Secretary General to appoint a special envoy in Hong Kong. Well, it's hardly a very controversial stuff in democracy lock Australia Russia. Will sell you think. We'll after the article, win online the pro. Chinese Communist Party students at the university they demanded the article be removed. You see caused a fence it was hurtful to the communist government in China. The university caved in and pulled the article. Only. After an outcry in the press was the article riposted. So. How did we get to the point when one of Australia's leading universities agrees to political censorship in favor of another nation state? Elaine. Joins me now aligned welcome to between the lines. Great to have you on the program. Thanks Tom. Now, the article is back on the University of New South Wales website but with caveats that the views expressed do not represent the views of the university you happy with this outcome. Well I'm glad that they put it back up. But I am pretty disappointed at the university's response I mean I think you know the views expressed in that article of us about the human rights situation in Hong Kong and I think that shouldn't be something that should be controversial and I was a bit surprised actually that the university was so quick to distance themselves from those views and I think you know I presumed that the ferocity of the campaign by the Pro Chinese Communist Party. Students really took them by surprise. But I think now the question really is how is Going to respond to this and I, think the students you know really are looking to see what is going to be the public response and what next is the university going to do to address these shoes mind you. This is not the only incident of academic freedom being compromised. Can you tell us about some of the other cases? Yeah, Human Rights Watch has actually been documenting Chinese document lit threats to academic freedom since two thousand fifteen not just in Australia about universities all around the world we've looked cases in the US the UK Canada France and right here, and what we've seen is that there is A universities are in a tight bind because the become quite dependent on foreign students. Many of those students coming from China those students have a very different world view, many of them and when they come here. Obviously you know coming here should come with a guarantee of academic freedom and what these should be quite basic things for an Australian university education. But in reality if those students try and for instance, join protests on campus about Hong Kong or Fin Jiang they are often then reported to the Chinese consulates So they are very afraid of doing anything like that they just. Try and keep the hits down and you know you only have to look at the controversy that's happened on Q. Withdrew Pavlou and how he has been treated to see that you know we you know it's not a very impressive response from the universities to to say, Scott Free speech and academic freedom only sorts of sensitive topics like shin-jang like Hong Kong, and like human rights in China. Now you mentioned drew heavily, he was expelled from the University of Queensland in part. For, organizing, what was it very noisy pro Hong Kong protests is that right? Well, he's been suspended. So I, think you know the industry who six months suspension six month suspension so He has been you know he's had been a pretty provocative campaigner. Some of these methods may have been a bit unorthodox, but at the end of the day, look at what happened to him on on that campus I. Mean there were fistfights erupting you cue between the different student groups you had in our pro CCP's students you know supporting the Communist Party trying to tear down. The messages from? Hong, Kong democracy supporters and the only person who's actually suffered any retaliation or reprisals is is drew himself, and so we wanna see universities really safeguard academic freedom and free speech and I think that means also acting against those who are intimidating or harassing all those on campus and making the campus a safe space to express all sorts of different views. Now in your case, a lot of the outrage amongst the Chinese students was expressed and organized I understand on Chinese soil media platforms way chat. which are now apparently watched by Beijing and to what extent you concerned about those platforms like we had and I think the other one is is a waiver we Yes that's right. Yeah I mean. These were the platforms where they organize. Look if students want to express different view an opposing you that's fine I think. I'm concerned is the extent to which this campaign became one of intimidating and harassing other students who expressed different views and as I understand it were threats made that they would report people to the Chinese consulate. For expressing excuse so I think the universities actually really need to monitor. Their social media channels and not just use them as a means of advertising for you know potential new students come to the university but also make sure that those channels are being you know being up being watched not to to censor free speech. But as I said, you know where that free speech is crossing the line. I also think they just need to be clear to the students. You know what what that means that it means. Going to a means being exposed to two different views and a free to discuss and debate those issues, but you're not free to shut down. The views of others. Of course, a line universities in Australia and this is cried sacred I've become increasingly dependent on. Overseas students for their budgets. Some have more diversified student bodies but others locked. University of new, South, Wales away opposite talking about University of New South Wales because of your special case this week they heavily concentrated on the Chinese market now since covert. US W has been one of the hardest hit by travel restrictions at recently made nearly I think five hundred staff redundant. Do you think this budget anxiety affected their handling of the issue align peace and? Yes I've been I think this reliance on the revenue from foreign students is something that you know all universities are facing now and so it it is putting them in a difficult position but I think that's why actually universities need to have a unified front. I think they really need to look at their existing. Codes of conduct they don't actually deal with these issues of foreign students might come from very different oil you, and so you know what I've suggested to you, and it's still view and to many other universities in Australia is to adopt a twelve point code of conduct specifically on these issues and they need to be alive to these issues. They need to incorporate it more into the orientation when you foreign students coming to campus so that they really understand what academic freedom means with our and they need to sort of monitor and. Safeguard, for you know acts of intimidation or harassment because I'm not so worried about myself but I'm more worried about other students on campus who will see how the situation has developed and then they might be too scared to speak out on. Hong Kong will fit in the classroom or other academics who might think twice about taking a meteorological on Hong Kong because they'll be worried about the potential backlash. So you know I think universities really need to take a stand on this and you know it needs to be done. You know jointly. By by all USTRALIAN universities.

China is "No Friend to United States"

"Is no friend to the United States. That fact is clear to everyone except the Democrats. China tries to undermine the United States with every chance they get, Let's just look at the recent headlines. The Chinese Consulate in San Francisco is harboring a Chinese military researcher wanted by the FBI, who was accused of visa fraud and who lied about her connection to the Chinese military. We recently discovered the photos of her and the Chinese People's Liberation Army. We also found out that they have been spying and committing espionage from within our own borders in the consulate in Houston, now set fire to documents and would not even let the Houston fire Department in Makes you wonder what they're hiding or even what they are burning. A few months ago, U. S authorities arrested a Chinese researcher in Boston and charged with trying to caught him were trying to smuggle 21 vials of stolen biological research back to China. Just last month there caught another individual. At L A x trying to fly back and then we just found in January this year top professor at Harvard being paid by China. Think of that. The very country that created this problem is now trying to sabotage our effort to save the lives. That's why introduced legislation earlier this week to hold these criminals accountable.

Another things, calls to rip the guts out of the nation's defense budget by the Congressional Progressive Caucus. And also our dust up now that is centered around the Chinese consulate in Houston with the Chinese government and that we go to Ah, Sharon in the crane, Missouri. Good evening, Sharon. Good evening, Jim. Good evening to your guest. You know, there are people in this country and businesses corporations, organizations that are scared to death of offending China because they present such a large global markets. For our good our farm. Uh, Supplies are good supplies. Well, People be smart. Take off your rose colored glasses. There's a country in Asia that is sitting there that is a democracy. That is a potential market. And they are willing To be friends with us and that's India. We can also going to South East Asia. We don't have to depend on China. Or our market. We have got markets over there. All we have to do is open them up. And have a reciprocity. So I these people they're willing to make money. The disadvantage of the country. They really don't care what happens to the country as long as they make their bottom line. Well, they need to step back from that a little bit and rethink that whole idea. Now call I've got to say, Well, I would certainly concur with what Sharon had to say. I would simply repeat the words of Vladimir Lenin. When it comes time to hang all the capitalists they shall be found bidding on the rope gym. Well, if you could hug people on the radio, I would just hug her. Look, I so I think that's exactly right. Look, here's what people say. Well way. Neto not let people do business with China, and I think that's the wrong way. I love free markets Tonight. I love people making economic decisions for themselves. And rather than I say, How can we keep people from doing business in China? I said Look, number one is ask yourself. Why can't people do business here? What if the obstacles that federal and state and local governments and put in place that make it harder for people just do business? The United States, So let's get rid of all those things first. Give people a reason to do business in America. The second thing I would say is You don't have to do business with China. You can do business with your friend's countries that you can trust. I think India is a great example if you took India, India, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Malaysia together. That is ah manufacturing base. That's every bit as big as China has the potential to be every bit as as cost effective, lucrative and all those country and throw Vietnam in there all those countries like us. I do do business and they wouldn't try to steal from us so and people say you look, I mean, I think And I do think, Cos they're coming around to this and realising that when you're doing business in China, the cost benefit risks are more than just How cheap can I buy something from a Chinese company? You have to worry about your reputation. Are you with a company that is trafficking and slave labor of Are you buying malicious software? Are you dealing with a company that's going to steal your intellectual property? I mean, there's all kinds of other risk that companies have to think about. Again. I think this administration is done a great job of telling people to wake up, you know, smell the coffee and and look at this. And let's look at better, better global economic partnerships. And I think Actually, India is Again. I'm not, you know cheerlead for the administration because I'm nonpartisan. I'm out there. These guys have done a very, very good job in building stronger relationships with India. It is time that we develop that strong economic ties with India and India becomes, you know, kind of the new The new China that new reelection Amish partner for us it would be much much better off I think that we would in fact, be be much much better off 186650 Jimbo 18665054626 Here is Craig and Champaign, Illinois. Good evening, Craig. Welcome. Good. A good evening to both of you. Gentlemen. Think GM, I actually had called Ah, one time before when Mr Carafano was on there and I didn't have a chance for a follow up question last time, okay? Because I was really I was really shocked, really shocked at his answer to my question, And that question is why was All these concerns about China Communist government, their nest banana spying, nuclear weapons. Why? Oh, why do we continue to allow Hundreds of thousands of Chinese students to study our colleges and universities. I just I just do not understand that at all from a national security viewpoint, all right, Well, I mean, I don't know. It may be the same kind of reasoning that goes into white companies don't meet the criteria that Jim Carrey final just outlined next quarterly dividend. Nice quarterly dividend. No care about those long range things don't care about reputation, going to worry about the next quarterly dividend. We have some very short sighted CEOs in this country who are frankly Horrors when it comes to the defense of the country that nurtures their success, But I'll defer to Jim Carafano here about those students. Well, you know, I don't sound like a broken record, like you know, cheerfully for administration, but again, I think this administration has been very clear headed on this and said, Look, you know, we've got lots of Chinese students coming here. Some of them may be perfectly fine, but but we've got to be realistic about this. Some of them they're not. And so, for example, one of the things the government has said is Look, we're going to stop giving student visas to people who are directly connected with the Chinese military and the government were coming here. You know, to study things that could be turned. It used against us. I I think there's a are perfectly responsible. Attitude and I I think largely the I think you're right, but largely university, but this is a cash cow. We can't stop having these tiny students. Well, I mean, look what we have. We've got universities which your discovery Hundreds of professors that are on the Chinese government payroll feeding research back to China, and this is illegal activity. So I think if we just clean out the illegal, clean out the malicious actions clean. We're goingto address a large part of that problem, and I do think it is a challenge. We have to face if I left the contrary impression or last call didn't mean to do that is a serious concern, not just students, but also Chinese researchers here and we have to we have to, you know the part that threat from the non threats. It's an important mission. Absolutely more to come back in a moment. Have you ever wanted to learn a new language like French Spanish, a Russian but.

We're setting out clear expert ations for how the Chinese Communist Party is going to behave. And when they don't we're going to take actions that protect the American People.

Just yesterday, The Department of Justice for the first time accused Chinese hackers of working for both personal gain and the Communist Party. China has now taken its place alongside Russia.

It is not reopen because of a dispute over whether US employees after quarantine and take over 19 tests upon arrival. The Chinese airports longer term U.

Otherwise, China will take a legitimate and necessary countermeasures. Publically. Chinese diplomats emphasize mutual respect and criticize US policy is self defeating. Foreign minister Long E.

"This is morning edition on KCRW. I'm Jonathan bastion seven thirty four. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin. And I'm Steve Inskeep. Good morning to acts of violence in Pakistan today, highlighted to trends in that giant country. One attack was a bomb at an open air vegetable market early estimates found more than thirty five people were killed in the explosion. The attack was inside a town. That's home to many Shiite Muslims who are a minority and Pakistan and often targeted now. The other attack was in the giants city of Karachi someone targeted the Chinese consulate there Pakistan is one of many US allies in which China plays an ever larger role. So let's talk about that. With NPR's Diaa Hadid is following the story either DEA high I the attack itself what happened. So early this morning. Three gunmen blasted their way onto the grounds of the Chinese consulate in Karachi, and they try to attack the building itself, but they were prevented by police who engage them in a in a gun battle. And you could hear the blasts in in videos uploaded from the area and they killed all three militants two. Policemen were killed, and so were father and son who had gone to the consulate that morning to apparently to pick up the visas, and I guess we should mention this is a kind of attack that we sometimes see an unstable areas, it's not a car bomb. It's not a suicide bomb. It's people coming in person. And they're trying to be an assault force. Although they were driven. They were destroyed killed here. Right. And in this case the attack was claimed by a group called the Liberation Army. And they've long had grievances against China's involvement in Pakistan and in a statement reported by wire agencies. They said they were fighting China's occupation of Pakistan. So this is different from. Other militant attacks that do occur in Pakistan. Okay. Americans hearing, this might be surprised to to think that anybody believes China occupies, Pakistan. What exactly are they talking about? Right. So China and Pakistan have a really old strategic relationship. It goes back seventy years, and it's really sort of taken off in recent years, China is investing billions of dollars into Pakistan's energy an into its infrastructure and Pakistan relies on China for billions of dollars in lines that keeps his country afloat. But the this relationship does have its discontents and one of them are people who live in this very poll province of Baluchistan there. China's investing in this enormous port called guava, and we spike in in the pasta two activists who allege that the expansion of the port has displaced fishermen it siphoned off Warna and left residents with nowhere to go. And they say that Pakistani forces have taken a hard line against Balu activists under the pretext of trying to preserve China's security there. So. They is simmering resentment. Oh, so they feel that they are basically victims of an imperial force that that there's even more strong crackdowns on the Baluchi activists just because the Chinese demand. That's right. And last year, we even documented a woman who was such for her, son. He was a bullish activist in the city of Karachi, and we've seen increasing numbers here of people who've been disappeared most likely bypass Cassani security forces, according to activists because they've been act of agitating against China's involvement in Baluchistan. So what does an attack like this unsuccessful as it was say about China's involvement in Pakistan? Well, the relationship is still strong. But what this might do is deter more Chinese investment in Pakistan. And that's something this country desperately needs right now. Do you? Thanks for the update. Really? Appreciate it. You'll welcome stave. That's NPR's Diaa Hadid in Islamabad. We're now going to shift over to the United Kingdom were energy use has been dropping over the past fifteen years, but it's been a quiet victory and a mysterious one as NPR's Camilo, Domino's ski reports British electricity use dropped so much over the last decade that it's as if the UK shut down its largest coal power plant twice. That's according to the climate policy think-tanks sandbag, and it's not just electricity. The country's total energy consumption of all kinds has dropped ten percent since two thousand and two, and that's kind of unusual actually Dinu we used to be a climate adviser in the British government. Now, he works at energy systems catapult, which promotes energy and ovation. I asked him why this is happening. Are there? Just fewer people notice. The opposite UK has had an increasing population. A slowing economy uses less power is the British economy struggling overall GDP has increased it's not tied to skyrocketing costs. And it's not the weather. The decline remains if you factor in temperature and the UK is seeing a drop while Ireland right next door is not in fact last year, the UK was the only country in the EU to see a drop in electric city use I asked Nui is it something special about British people stoicism self restraint required reserved. But that's always been the case. And I think that's increased or decreased over the last ten years. So what is going on the first thing on say is not perfectly. Understood exactly what is happening in lists do know some of the factors, but even those can be a little confusing consider energy efficiency getting. That's a insulated homes investor in sled office buildings more efficient televisions. Computers. Fridges freezers tussle thing. Jonathan Marshall is the head of analysis that a think tank called energy and climate intelligence unit. He says officiency is definitely part of the drop in energy use, but energy standards for appliances are the same across. Cross Europe have energy writings for fridges are the same in the UK in Poland in Italy. And only the UK is seeing you stop like this. Then when it comes to homes, it's not like the British government is making a huge insulation push. There isn't really a particularly strong energy efficiency policy in the UK at the moment. It's not a total mystery. Other factors include a shift away from heavy industry improvements in streetlamps, tightened standards, for boilers and changing consumer patterns, but added together they don't quite seem to explain the drop. These solutions are not thrilling it's easy to get thoughts about about electric vehicles and wind turbines is about insulation. And guy knew he says, it doesn't help that. There's no one reason for the drop. Yes, much easier. If you can just point to one thing and say, brilliant, if we just did X delivers white benefit, and that's fantastic. Still. This little puzzle is good news for the policy fight against greenhouse gas emissions. Some people worry that restricting energy use could hurt a country's economy. What we've seen I guess through history as as people become richer. They tend to buy more stuff us more stuff and consume more energy. But remember the British GDP has been rising that link between growth in energy use has been broken in the UK the interesting question for kind of wider global energy policies. Can that example, be replicated so countries around the world could grow economically and slash emissions? If they figure out.

Why Chinese interest in Pakistan under attack by militants will say would impact our American sanctions having on Iran would have a rare report from inside, Iran? Iran is so hot for living so hot for. All chain. Everyone thinking about going out of Iran me everyone. We'll also hear from Sudan where there's a new push to end the practice of female genital mutilation. That's sorta come in this edition of news up, but we begin in Pakistan and an attack on the Chinese consulate in the city of Karachi, which has left at least seven people dead. According to the local police chief three suicide attackers tried to storm the consulate but were killed before they could get into the building. The Chinese government has condemned the attack which also claimed the lives of two police officers and two civilians, but left Chinese consulate staff unharmed, the Baluchistan Liberation Army which opposes Chinese infrastructure projects in Pakistan's southwest province of Baluchistan said they carried it out. This man was a witness to the assault. They were three people one was big. And the other two were thin as soon as they arrived at the barrier. They held a small bomb and started firing as soon as they started firing. I went inside my house and bolted the door. You're better better medical billing, again, the the Pakistani prime minister Ron con later held a news conference in Islam Abbad. He said the government had expected what he called efforts to destabilize Pakistan. With us. Those Chinese embassy worker. Terrorist attacks have taken place this morning in Karachi on the Chinese embassy. This was not surprising hit indications that efforts would be made to destabilize Pakistan. We did not know where it would happen. But we did have indications especially after a recent visit to China. Everyone knew that agreements were signed during the visit to China. He did muddy agreement signed. We or subgroup of the. To the Pakistani prime minister, I'm wrong, come where China's in neighboring Pakistan and his pulled billions of dollars into the country as part of its belt and road initiative state-backed campaign to construct a belt of land corridors an maritime road of shipping lanes in Baluchistan that is involved construction of a deep water port in the town of guava and other projects Andrew small is the author of the China, Pakistan access, Asia's new Jere politics. He's on the line now, and Mr. small tell us more about what China is trying to do in Pakistan and why well it's traditional relationship with Pakistan has always been founded on the two countries shed antipathy towards India. China has long sought to bolster Pakistan's capabilities against India to ensure that it can act as a balanced to India in the region traditionally that was focused on security objectives. And security and military support. The last few years trying to move towards providing various forms of economic support financial support and this very large scale investment project, China Pakistan, economic corridor. Its main objective is is still traditional one kind of counter-balancing role in the region. But China also has goals to help stabilize Pakistan to deal with militancy in the region, and it has all the security interests that go beyond Pakistan, including naval cooperation, and the looks further afield into the Indian Ocean and Pakistan is one of China's few reliable friends when it comes to that so elements of the cooperation of directed towards that too. But that cooperation also benefits Chinese economic interests. Absolutely. I mean, the primary beneficiaries of these investments are the Chinese companies that are being financed essentially by Chinese state development institutions, they're the ones and getting all of these these these. Big contracts, and the rates of return that they get from Pakistani project saw all pretty generous. So it's certainly the case that Chinese economic interests are still at the forefront of a lot of what China is doing in Pakistan. But the hope I suppose looking at the ball the nine elements of of of what China's up to that all that this will help to fix originally Pakistan's energy crisis over the last few years by providing more power, but will say to to address some of the infrastructure deficiencies in the in the country to have, of course, the macroeconomic implications of this actually been quite challenging I think for Pakistan say foster, it's not yet clear that it will deliver all with all of the benefits that they would have helped and hostility there appears to be in the Lucci. Stan is is that reflected elsewhere in the country? Politic comes been a particular point. I mean, the attacks on Chinese economic interests in in Pakistan have come back to the early two thousands pretty much since the Chinese started the construction of of quota, port sip. Religious Tom's always been a special case where the objective really is to put pressure on the train to pull out of the country and put a lot of pressure on the Pakistani government, but there have been concerns elsewhere in the country for the militant groups that that target China inside Pakistan, including the Pakistani Taliban, but this little cetera in China has traditionally been very popular in Pakistan has approval ratings typically of above eighty percent even ninety percents at times, but with the final Pakistan economic corridor. Even though there's been some degree of goodwill behind it. The little saving a lot of questions raised about transparency about who benefits from it and within Pakistan about corruption about whether Pakistani businesses will get all of the benefits that they would. What would help for? There's been a lot of criticism of some of which expressed publicly some of which I'm a little bit under the under the radar. And so I think there are more critics of China in in Pakistan as a result of lot of the economic activities, even if that traditional goodwill in the relationship has gone away. Mrs small very very briefly other indications that the current government is perhaps lesson through cystic than previous governments, very briefly. Yes. The previous government tied China's economic investment street Sern agenda in the country Imran Khan was much more of a critic of and trying to Pakistan economic corridor.
