BEIJING: The construction of the $50 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor+ has been affected in the short run due to India's objections, a report in the state-run Chinese media said.
It added that if Beijing and Islamabad are firm in their cooperation, they can dispel New Delhi's doubts.
India is protesting+ against the CPEC as it passes through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK)
"Some people believe obstruction by India may become a stumbling block to the development of the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC)," an article in the official daily Global Times said.
In fact, India's "rejection" is mainly because the corridor passes through the Pakistan-occupied Kashmir+ . The corridor's construction may be affected in the short term, but from a long-term perspective, China and Pakistan can dispel India's doubt to the maximum degree if they are firm about their cooperation and actively interact with neighbouring countries, it said.
We are firmly against CPEC, if it passes through POK
India should not allow its construction
CPEC will not finish as we are going to block it
CPEC will be a flop if Asian countries don't support, especially India. Pakistan will be the loser and will end up repaying loans for lifetime.

India has every right to object
Our security and safety is at stake
Hey China. Thanks for buying Pakistan. Can you please sell us PoK ? You can keep the rest of the terroristan
India is opposing CPEC just to raise its cost. Let Pakistan fall into a massive debt trap. Will be fun to watch chinese trying to recover their investment and in process making some new enemies :) :)
India can do nothing. It would be suicidal for India to meddle unnecessarily in the Pak China affairs
Shame on Indians to buy chinks goods,stop buying Chinese goods,buy Indian goods only.
