Baloch rebels warn China of dire consequences if it does not immediately stop the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project

The Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA) has threatened China with dire consequences if it continues the much anticipated China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project in Balochistan.

The group said that it had formed a special unit of its Majeed Brigade, which was responsible for the attack on Hotel Pearl Continental in the port city of Gwadar, to attack the Chinese officials and installations.

“China, you came here (Balochistan) without our consent, supported our enemies, helped Pakistani military in wiping our villages. But now it’s our time,” BLA leader General Aslam Baloch said in a video message.

“Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) guarantees you that CPEC will fail miserably on the Baloch land. Balochistan will be a graveyard for your expansionist motives…. A special unit in Majeed Brigade has been formed, particularly, to attack Chinese officials and installations in Balochistan,” he added.

“President Xi Jinping, you still have time to quit Balochistan, or you will witness a retaliation from Baloch sons and daughters that you will never forget,” he said.
