Pakistan economic corridor is of utmost importance for Pakistan, China, and the region. Balochistan is crucial to the success of the CPEC, but there is a huge problem for China because of Baloch nationalists are up with arms.
These Baloch nationalists are up with arms because Beijing’s design is exploiting the area. Baloch nationalists is led by the Baloch Liberation Army (BLA). There was a number of attacks against Beijing’s assets.
