After collaborating to combat the pandemic, Pakistan and China should expedite the construction of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), the Belt and Road Initiative’s center piece project. For the tenth time, the CPEC Joint Coordination Committee (JCC) convened a new information technology working group to enhance the project. A Chinese English daily, the success of CPEC will significantly boost Pakistan’s overall national power and worldwide standing.
The key to CPEC’s success is for Pakistan to establish its industrial advantages through reform and development, which will create a safer atmosphere for the project’s construction.
According to the report, the global and regional structures have shifted dramatically in recent years. The Afghan crisis is the primary indicator of the changing geopolitical situation in South Asia and its neighbouring regions.
The US withdrew its soldiers from Afghanistan prematurely, and the Afghan Taliban rapidly seized control of Kabul. Numerous Western strategists and media outlets in India and the West have linked the Afghan Taliban’s assumption of power to China-US relations, China-India relations, and India-Pakistan relations.
They believe that the Afghan Taliban’s successful seizing of power is a success for China-Pakistan, but a strategic disaster for several countries, including India.
India also aspires to become a global force, as seen by its Indo-Pacific strategy and efforts to implement Hindu nationalist policies at home and in the region.
“India has long been relegated to the periphery of the Afghan conflict. India’s engagement in Afghanistan is unlikely to be favorable. India is likely to utilize its intelligence agencies and some of the forces it has developed in Afghanistan and its neighboring areas over the last two decades to undermine and destabilize Afghanistan’s stability. It harms Afghanistan and its immediate neighbors, which include China and Pakistan.”
China-Pakistan, as all-weather strategic partners, must collaborate to maintain and strengthen regional security and stability. To begin, China-Pakistan must work closely together on the Afghan issue to urge the Afghan Taliban to form an open and inclusive government and pursue a moderate internal and foreign policy, the statement stated.

At the moment, the Afghan Taliban’s rhetorical expression is markedly different than in the past, but we have no idea what policies they may promote in the future, it added.
The Afghan Taliban are dealing with a range of serious obstacles. Firstly, the Afghan Taliban’s cohesiveness; secondly, the Afghan Taliban’s ability to construct an open and inclusive administration. Thirdly, food scarcity is likely to result in humanitarian crises and refugee flows; fourthly, they seek the international community’s recognition but confront hostility, blockade, sanctions, and even subversion from some unfriendly forces in the world.
China, Pakistan, Russia, and Iran all wish the Afghan Taliban success in establishing an open and inclusive system that allows for the representation of all ethnic groups and political parties in Afghanistan, which is critical for the Afghan Taliban to garner domestic and international support.
China does not want Afghanistan to descend into chaos once more of internal political conflict, which inevitably results in humanitarian catastrophes, nor does China want Afghanistan to become a haven for Eastern Turkistan groups such as the ETIM.
China does not want Afghanistan to become a source of the regional upheaval of some external parties intervening excessively, jeopardising the security of the CPEC.
As a result, China and Pakistan should coordinate their efforts in Afghanistan with Russia, Iran, and Central Asian countries. These countries should work together to alert Europe to the possibility of a refugee catastrophe and put pressure on the US, India, and a few European countries to take responsible humanitarian action in Afghanistan.
While enhancing strategic and security coordination against terrorist supporters, China and Pakistan should collaborate with countries both within and outside the region to promote the growth of an open, inclusive, democratic, and equitable regional governance and security structure.
