This is an interesting contribution by Umar Lateef Misgar on the important role China plays in neoliberal economics & politics on almost every continent. This article covers only one aspect, but an important aspect, of the role China is playing in Kashmir. China’s economic & political involvement in Africa, Latin America, South Asia, & elsewhere needs to be exposed & elaborated to fully understand the competitive forces driving capitalism into a vortex of crisis.

(PS: Only because of the importance of this issue, I put aside my objections to AlAraby journal for publishing the scurrilous rubbish by Sam Hamad attacking BDS & the designation of Israel as apartheid. Apparently not all of its editors are reactionary.)
