Since the beginning of diplomatic ties in 1951, China-Pakistan has enjoyed long-lasting,
stable and friendly relations and considered to be an irreplaceable “all-weather friend”
as well. In any hard and troubled time, both countries support each other. Pakistan could
have got more benefit from China in the last several decades; however, the CPEC under
Chinas “BRI” provides a very shining opportunity for the economic development of
Pakistan. Balochistan is geographically the largest and population-wise the smallest
province. With its precious mineral resources, deep sea and a vast coast with fantastic
climate Balochistan has been ignored; consequently, a significant portion of the youth
opted for alternative way, engaging themselves in such activities which brought
uncertainty and trouble in the province. Of course, the primary cause of such a condition
is economic deprivation, joblessness and most importantly political power which has not
been given to them.
