CHINA Builds Digital Silk Road And Exclude india For PAKISTANI Internet Traffic To Serve The Geostrategic Interests Of Both Iron Brothers:
PAKISTAN Iron Brother CHINA is building the digital Silk Road, as part of the Broader CHINESE Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), to exclude and bypass india for PAKISTANI Internet Traffic in order to serve the geostrategic interests of both Iron Brothers, PAKISTAN and CHINA, in the region.
As part of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and Digital Silk Road Plan, PAKISTAN Iron Brother CHINA is laying the final phase of cross-border Fiber Optic Cable in PAKISTAN that will help to create Digital Silk Road and it will also help to serve the geostrategic interests of both Brotherly Countries.
The Fiber Optic Cable being laid by CHINA will connect PAKISTAN to the PAKISTAN East Africa Connecting Europe (PEAC) Submarine cable in the Arabian Sea to all the participant countries of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
According to Telegeography, Washington-based Telecommunications Market research company, PAKISTAN is connected by 7 Submarine Cables at Present and 4 of these cables are coming out of india, which indicates the sensitivity and gravity of situation that how india is spying on PAKISTANI Internet Traffic.
The PAKISTAN East Africa Connecting Europe (PEACE) cable being laid by CHINA will bypass and exclude india for PAKISTANI Internet Traffic and will provide the shortest Direct link/route between all the BRI participating Countries and Europe.
Moreover, the PEACE cable will also drastically reduce the time taken to transfer the internet data between all the participating countries of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
“The $240-million project, which is in partnership with CHINA’s Huawei Technologies, was approved by the government last week,” the report said.
The Fiber Optic Cable is currently being laid between Federal Capital Islamabad and the port cities of Gwadar and Karachi.
PAKISTAN Federal Government has approved the construction of Arabian Sea landing Station in Karachi and the process of laying cable in Territorial Maritime Frontiers of PAKISTAN will begin in March 2021.
“The Mediterranean section of the cable is already being laid, and runs from Egypt to France. The 15,000 kilometer-long cable is expected to go into service later this year,” the report added.
Top Defense Analysts are terming CHINA’s this move as strategic as the various international telecommunication consortiums are dominated globally by Western and indian companies.
With the activation of the new Fiber Optic Cable, india can no longer spy and keep an eye on PAKISTANI Internet Traffic.
PAKISTAN Iron Brother CHINA is also providing PAKISTAN a whopping $6.8 Billion for a mega railway project to connect Gwadar erstwhile Country and CHINA with rail and road network.
“Part of Beijing’s response has been to step up digital projects and the development of communications infrastructure,” the report added.
The report acknowledged that the pace of Multi-Billion Dollars CHINA PAKISTAN Economic Corridor (CPEC) has accelerated drastically under the chairmanship and supervision of the CPEC Authority Chairman Lieutenant General (r) Asim Saleem Bajwa and it also increases the connectivity of World’s Deep Sea Port Gwadar with Major Road and Rail Connectivity in the Sacred Country PAKISTAN.
Eych Freymann, author of One Belt One Road: CHINESE Power Meets the World said, “Beijing wants to dominate the physical infrastructure underlying global communications, particularly the internet.”
“This will give it an advantage in internationalizing its tech sector and pursuing future tech-related deals with partner countries,” he added.
Moreover, PAKISTAN is also looking to adopt an alternate link to the internet through CHINA. As recently, the most Europe-bound Internet Traffic from CHINA runs through the terrestrial cables traversing Russia, magnolia and Kazakhstan.
The revolutionary CHINESE One Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) Project was announced the CHINESE President, H.E Mr. XI JINPENG back in 2013 with aim to boost cooperation and connectivity between different continents of Asia, Africa and Europe.
One of the major parts of BRI is the multi-billion dollars CHINA PAKISTAN Economic Corridor (CPEC), which would connect Gwadar to CHINA while running across all PAKISTAN.
