Pakistan expands security for Chinese after Beijing’s pressure –
ISLAMABAD — Pakistan is strengthening security for Chinese nationals working in the country as Beijing pressures Islamabad to do more to protect them from militants.
The Pakistani Interior Ministry held a high-level security meeting late last week and decided that strict protocols for Chinese personnel working on Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) projects should also apply to experts and investors involved in unrelated endeavors. The new procedures require these individuals to register their residential addresses with local police and ensure that they only travel in bulletproof vehicles.
