Pakistan said the hand of the country’s enemies

Suspicion of attack on anti-Chinese Liberation Army in Balochistan
Suspicion of this attack is raised on the Balochistan Liberation Army operating in this region. The organization has also carried out several attacks against Chinese officials and employees in the past. The same organization was also allegedly involved in the attack on the Karachi Stock Exchange last year. In 2006, the Pakistani army killed Nawab Akbar Bugti, the most influential leader in Balochistan at the behest of Pervez Musharraf. Musharraf was also arrested in 2013 for his murder. Musharraf said in his defense at the time that these leaders demanded a share of the revenues from oil and mineral production.

This organization targets the Chinese in opposition to the CPEC
The Balochistan Liberation Army has always opposed the China-Pakistan economic corridor. Several times this organization has also been accused of targeting Chinese citizens working in Pakistan. In 2018, the organization was also accused of assaulting the Chinese consulate in Karachi. There are allegations that Pakistan made a decision regarding the CPEC without consulting the Baloch leaders.

Baluchistan’s strategic position is important to Pakistan
Balochistan is Pakistan’s most important strategic province. Balochistan, Pakistan’s largest province, borders Afghanistan and Iran. At the same time, Karachi is also in the ranks of such people. Much of the Sino-Pakistani economic corridor passes through this province. The Baluchis also controlled the port of Gwadar, which Pakistan has now ceded to China.
