The Chinese have proven to be a godsend at a time when Pakistan is on the verge of collapse due to its long-prevailing energy crisis. The Chinese have continued to honor the friendship between both countries and, on more than one occasion, risen to the challenge of facilitating Pakistan’s energy-related issues. Its recent proposal of investing nearly $34 billion in various energy projects is but just another testament to its friendship.
Still, one is concerned of this turning into a nagging habit for the Pakistani government; the constant tendency to biting off more than one can chew and relying on others to bail you out. It’s about time that the government develops the strength to stand on its own two feet.
