CPEC to escalate India Pakistan tension in the region: UN

BEIJING: The $50 billion China Pakistan Economic Corridor Project (CPEC) traversing through Kashmir might create "geo-political tension" in the region by igniting further tensions between India and Pakistan, a UN report has warned.



The report released by the UN's Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) said that the project could also fuel separatist movement in Pakistan's Balochistan province.
