Pakistan slams PM Modi's Rs 25,000 crore bonanza to J&K, says hydro projects violate Indus Waters Treaty 19.5.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
There were angry protests from across the border in Pakistan after Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated a slew of multi-crore infrastructure projects including hydroelectric power plant in Jammu and Kashmir.  Islamabad has said that the project on a river flowing into the country will disrupt water supplies. The 330-megawatt Kishanganga hydropower station, work on which started in 2009, is one of the projects that India has fast-tracked in the volatile state under PM Modi amid frosty ties between the nuclear-armed countries. Pakistan has opposed some of these projects, saying they violate a World Bank-mediated treaty on the sharing of the Indus river and its tributaries upon which 80 percent of its irrigated agriculture depends. "Pakistan is seriously concerned about the inauguration (of the Kishanganga plant)," its foreign ministry said in a statement on Friday. "Pakistan believes that the inauguration of the project without the resolution of the dispute is tantamount to violation of the Indus ...

China to use Taiwan as nuclear and military base to isolate India, Japan: US lawmaker 18.5.2018 DNA: Top News
China will turn Taiwan into a major nuclear and conventional military base, a move which will allow it to project power into the Indian Ocean and consolidate more control over the disputed South China Sea to "isolate" both India and Japan, a US lawmaker has warned. Expressing concern over China's growing economic and military power, Richard D Fisher of the International Assessment and Strategy Centre told lawmakers yesterday that Beijing had a new strategy for gaining eventual global military access called "debt trap diplomacy". "China may be using debt pressure right now to force Djibouti to limit US military access in that strategic base. It recently gained ownership of a new large port in Sri Lanka by debt default. Vanuatu, Pakistan, Thailand and others are vulnerable," Fisher said. A good reason to deter a Chinese invasion of Taiwan, which could be perhaps as early as the mid-2020s, was that China will turn Taiwan into a major nuclear and conventional military base, he said. "This will then trigger ...
