Pakistan has become a pawn of China due to CPEC: IAF Chief

Calling Pakistan a "pawn" in the Chinese policy, India Air Force Chief RKS Bhadauria said that country's increasing CPEC related debt trap will lead to military dependencies in future.

The IAF Chief further said that China's aspirations are on the global front and regional domination is a path of the route to global leadership.

"Pakistan has increasingly become a pawn in Chinese policy, under an increasing CPEC related debt trap there will be further military dependencies in future.

US exit from Afghanistan has opened increased options for China in the region both direct and through Pakistan.

We are all aware that China's main aspiration is quiet clearly on the global front and regional domination is a path of the route to global leadership," said IAF Chief RKS Bhadauria.
