Chinese financial assistance — which in recent years has immensely helped Islamabad in meeting its pressing needs — is one of the main reasons for the delay in the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) bailout package for Pakistan.

The IMF’s conditions for signing the deal with Pakistan include sharing details of Chinese loans, increasing the power tariff, adjustments in the exchange rate and fiscal policies and imposition of taxes. These have been the sticking points since November last year, said government sources.

It is interesting a condition. Pak can walk away from the IMF loan, because the decision is simple black and white. If it does not like the conditions, it does not have to get the loan. It can get similar loan from Chinese entity with more favorable conditions, may be higher interest rate.

Pak seem to bent on getting money without any condition! Seems to think, IMF is holding Pak money and it will be a victory to get it back in form of loan!

The conditions are excuses. It wants a US underwriting of the loans, in form of US support. It is using the Afghan talks carrot to pressurize US to support the loan.

If the conditions are agreed and IMF loan is released, Pak will not have any leverage on the Afghan talks. It wants the money, with US agreeing it's conditions.

In the meanwhile, Pakistanis are avidly following the Indian election, https://www.dawn.com/news/1475442/in-pi ... -elections, with a greater sense of anticipation than most Indians.


It reinforces my assessment that Pakistanis really think of themselves at best as a wayward state of India entitling them to participate, however vicariously, in the Indian general election.

The insistence on dialogue and sovereign equality arises from an attachment disorder with fears of abandonment. These foundational/mother issues has led to Pakistani difficulty in developing mature relationships with its neighbours. Much as in human developmental psychology.

Habalji's explanation probably explains best what is going on in Pakistan.

I was thinking that getting Nawaz while letting the younger brother unpunished was the deal stuck between younger brother and the establishment. May be even the elder brother was included in the deal with a sunset from the politics for his side of the family. But with establishment going after younger brother's family too the whole logic of above doesn't stand except for that establishment back stabbed the younger brother after taking out the elder brother.

Same was done with ten percenti. PMLN was pressurized to not extend him a helping hand when he went on an offensive against Army. Later he stuck a deal with establishment to not support PMLN, may be to avenge himself plus letting them not prosecute him and his family. But the noose is now tightening around his neck too.


Once they are both done, it would be im the dims turn. Some parts are already moving for this and foundations are being laid to build an offensive against him at short notice. PTI thus becomes a tool for the establishment to bring a new order.

There was a report few weeks back on possible friction between Bajwa and Gafoor in Pakistani army:

https://www.theweek.in/news/india/2019/ ... tback.html
"It is believed in close military circles that the Hilal-i-Imtiyaz awarded to the General on Pakistan Day was against the wishes of the COAS, who thought it was a bit pre-mature. This however, did not alter the nomination of Gen Ghafoor for the award that had the blessings of the Prime Minister."

On this backdrop, below tweets from Gafoor from personal handle are interesting:
https://twitter.com/peaceforchange/stat ... 0351398914
Sometimes the person you would take a bullet for is standing behind the trigger...
still keep doing your best bit selflessly. Humanity and Pakistaniat is far superior than anything else. Defeat the divisive agenda of inimical forces.

Disappointment for the Terroristanis :

Umar-Mnuchin meeting fails to materialize at IMF moot
ISLAMABAD: US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin did not meet with the Pakistani delegation on the sidelines of the spring meetings of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), [color]indicating a lack of warmth in ties between the once close allies.


Terrroristani Waling Response at its Wailing Wall :((

Contrary to IMF claims, Pakistan's economy can grow over 3.5% - Salman Siddiqui
KARACHI: Pakistan’s economic growth will not slow down to the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) anticipated level 2.9%, but in fact it is likely to be well above 3.5% during the current fiscal year 2019, PM Economic Advisory Council member told The Express Tribune.
“This is a political statement of IMF,” PM Economic Advisory Council’s member Dr Ashfaque Hasan Khan said. “The economy will grow between 3.5-4% during the current fiscal year 2019.”

Vawda asks citizens not to make cash donations in damn fund

ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Water Resources Faisal Vawda has said the citizens should not make cash donations to the dams fund.

During an interview with anchor Saleem Safi in the Geo’s programme ‘Jirga’ on Saturday the minister said the government has no check and balance on the former chief justice Saqib Nisar’s Dams fund campaign.

He asked the citizens not to make any cash donations to the dams fund and instead do that in the form of a cross cheque or bank draft.

IMF may delay visit as bailout talks still going on

Some of the conditions proposed by the IMF include: making the State Bank independent, a market-oriented exchange rate, expanding the tax target by Rs5,000 billion, ending income tax concessions, more taxes on salaries, narrowing the amount of taxable income from Rs12 lakh a year to Rs4 lakh, reducing electricity and gas losses, no government interference in Nepra and Ogra policies, Rs140 billion electricity and gas revenue losses be recovered from consumers.


Also

Pakistanis point out that this would be their 14th package with the IMF, if finalised. They argue that the conditions attached to previous programmes were also not fully implemented because they were too restrictive. When asked how much money did Pakistan expect from the IMF, a source said: “The amount and length of the programme also depends on the nature of the package. If the conditions are too restrictive, Pakistan would expect a larger package, i.e. more assistance for a longer period.”
:rotfl:

Take that you kufr capitalists, the more conditions you put (which we will not implement anyways) the more you have to give us and for a longer period too.

Terroristan cannot rid itself of its old habit of not honouring Arbitration Awards - not even with Islamic Brother Turkish Companies!

Karkey Rental power dispute: Pakistan will have to deposit $150m as security by 30th
LAHORE: The International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) has bound Pakistan to post cash security of US$150 million by April 30, 2019 as a condition for extension of stay of enforcement, claimed Karkey Karadeniz Elektrik Uretim, Turkish power company.
Karkey claimed that enforcement of an award, already given by the ICSID against Pakistan, would be enforced if such security was not posted in time. In case of failure, Karkey will be free to pursue enforcement of the award, the company said here on Sunday, citing ICSID Tribunal’s March 22, 2019 order.

In this same article a line is mentioned that IMF is demanding the scope of Chinese assistance including JF-17 and the 8 Chinese SSK that pakis are supposed to acquire. This tallies with some other articles that I had read that the interest rates of Chinese loans is so high because it has some sort of inbuild payment for 8 Chinese subs and jf-17 block 3 purchases inbuild in them to keep the capex of acquiring such equipment off the defense budget to keep it under 3% of GDP to please IMF

The operative word for me is International in International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). To me an uneducated one, it seems to imply that various nations have an understanding with such an association (or similar such Internationally recognised institutions, eg. World Bank, etc.) and sort of agree to allow its rulings to be enforced, ie assist in the seizure of assets of a party(s) to a settlement via its ruling.

My question, how does a ruling from a Chinese court get enforced in a CPEC related dispute, lets say against pukistan? Does anyone have an opinion or a direction to a precedence that I could read?

Thanks in advance.

Spilling tea with Asad Umar post-IMF: “We were very close to the landing zone; now we have landed”

Right after his meetings with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Washington, I had the opportunity to sit down for tea with Finance Minister Asad Umar at the Pakistani consulate in New York City. We talked about his negotiations with the IMF, unpacked his outlook on the Pakistani economy as well as the personal toll this job is taking on him.

This is absolutely hillarious. Pakis have been paying off white 'influencers' (actually a bunch of nobodies with no real credibility who suddenly appeared on the scene after they got a lifafa from ISPR) to promote a make-believe positive image of the country, but some of them couldn't take the level of bullshit and turned rogue.

We need to be honest, Pakistan is not an easy country to travel in: travel blogger Alex

Alex, American traveller behind the travel blog Lost With Purpose, was invited to speak at the Pakistan Tourism Summit last month. However, she says her talk was cancelled last minute as the organisers said it was too critical and didn't fit the agenda of the summit. :lol:

After being "silenced", she decided to upload her talk on Facebook.

In the 15-minute video, Alex feels the PTS failed to fulfill its purpose because the organisers only wanted her to talk about how "awesome Pakistan" is, but refused to address the real concerns Pakistan's tourism may face, which is why she took to social media to share the issues. :rotfl:

Seeing the video makes one thing clear, Pakistanis have drunk their own kool-aid and stories of invincibility so much, that they are convinced about their superiority. With Pakistan slowly but steadily unravelling, its unclear if they will ever accept their failure; instead they will be an unanimous chorus about how the YYY collaborators are destroying them. Overall, no good options to India. Sanity is dead in that country.

Also, the one thing that stood out in that video was when the traveller indicates that often "you might be the only women in a street and that is construed as a sign of sexual invitation". Wow.

https://www.thenews.com.pk/latest/458338-pakistan-reaches-agreement-with-imf-on-bailout-package-sources

Headline:

Pakistan reaches agreement with IMF on bailout package: sources


Reality (in last paragraph):

The official said differences between the two sides had narrowed down and a consensus on macroeconomic and financial policy framework was expected on the basis of which the conditions and performance criteria would be finalised.


From YAWN https://www.dawn.com/news/1476295/imf-s ... iscussions:

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) on Monday said that it held "constructive discussions" with Pakistani authorities during last week's spring meetings in Washington and that its mission will be visiting Pakistan "before the end of April to continue the discussions" on a bailout package.

"Pakistan reaches agreement with IMF"

From the same YAWN article linked above:

Some of the conditions proposed by the IMF include: making the State Bank independent, a market-oriented exchange rate, expanding the tax target by Rs5,000 billion, ending income tax concessions, more taxes on salaries, narrowing the amount of taxable income from Rs12 lakh a year to Rs4 lakh, reducing electricity and gas losses, no government interference in Nepra and Ogra policies, Rs140 billion electricity and gas revenue losses be recovered from consumers.

The sticking points, however, are the demands for market-determined exchange rates and sharing details of Chinese loans which Pakistan is reluctant to do.

So Pakistan has agreed to all the 'non sticking' conditions? Every 'non sticking' condition will increase the burden on aam abduls and has the potential to trigger street protests and situation could spiral out of control. I hope India is ready with a plan to fish in the troubled waters. This is a golden opportunity.

She is like a civilized, sane version of Christine Fair in terms of her analysis of the Paki mindset, which is spot on. The way that she ripped them to shreds over their 'Gora Complex' as she put it, was really good.

You have to see the absolute hopelessness of pakis. The reaction to news/rumor/half fact of 'IMF agreement' on a bail out for Pakistan is being treated with such pride as if it is not taking a loan but giving one to the rest of the world :rotfl:

It would be simply mind numbing for anyone not knowing the pakis and their mentality to see the absolute shamelessness and desperation :D

Pakistan knows that IMF knows that Pakistan won't honor IMF conditions.
IMF knows that Pakistan is aware that IMF knows about Pakistan duplicity.

Both sides agree that "let's keep Pakistan going for another year" and after that, Allah knows best!

Paki wife beater day dreams on Kashmir and other issues.

Look at what paki 'anal' yst wants and which India wont do:

It remains to be seen if after their anticipated re-election, Modi and the BJP agree to resume a dialogue with Pakistan. But, even if talks resume, India is unlikely to offer any meaningful compromises to resolve the Kashmir dispute (Translation: Change the status quo and offer Kashmir to paksitan)


Peace could come to the entire region if India decides to become a part of the Asian ‘order’ being created under the Belt and Road Initiative and the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation. (Translation: India should move away from USA camp and should subjugate itself under China)


Paki beggars do not wish for much. do they? :rotfl:

No evidence of Pakistan dismantling terror infrastructure, says ex-envoy Haqqani.

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's recent statement promising an end of support to terror groups does not reflect a change of policy and is motivated by the fear of getting blacklisted by the global terror-financing watchdog FATF, the country's former envoy to the US Husain Haqqani has said.

Amidst intense global pressure to rein in terror outfits, Khan last month said his government will not allow Pakistan's land to be used for any kind of terror activities and promised actions against militant groups operating from the country's soil.

Haqqani, Pakistan's former Ambassador to the US, told a Washington audience on Friday that so far, there is no evidence that the Khan government or the military is dismantling Pakistan's terrorist support infrastructure.

"There is little change in Pakistan's attitude towards militancy, particularly the one directed against Afghanistan and India," he said in his address to the third 'India Ideas Conference' organised by India Initiative of the prestigious Georgetown University.

Haqqani pointed out that Pakistan has failed to initiate any action against the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terror group or its leader Masood Azhar after the Pulwama terrorist attack in Jammu and Kashmir.

"Islamabad's close ties with Beijing were invoked to ensure that Azhar's designation as a terrorist by the United Nations was blocked by China at Pakistan's behest," he said, adding that such moves are consistent with Islamabad's policies of the last 30 years.

Haqqani, who has authored several books, is currently the Director for South and Central Asia at the Hudson Institute think-tank. He is considered as an outspoken critic of the Pakistan Army's domestic and foreign policies, especially its support of terrorism.

"Although the FATF sanctions are not imminent, Pakistan is trying to thwart them with public relations moves such as Imran Khan's latest statement. There will be more PR moves as FATF pressures increase," he said.

The former ambassador said that the desire to reassure the world once again that Pakistan wants to act against terrorist groups is motivated by economic considerations. "Pakistan's economy is not doing too well. FATF sanctions would only make Khan's only economic option – more borrowing and financial bailouts by other countries and IMF-- more difficult," he said.

Haqqani stressed that "Pakistan's support for militancy is a strategic choice, motivated by the desire to provide a force multiplier for a relatively poor country trying to act as a major regional power without resources comparable to its perceived rival".

Pakistan is under intense global pressure to rein in terrorist outfits operating from its soil after the Pulwama attack. Tensions between India and Pakistan escalated after a suicide bomber of Pakistan-based terror group JeM killed 40 CRPF personnel in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district on
February 14.

India launched a counter-terror operation in Balakot. The next day, Pakistan Air Force retaliated and downed a MiG-21 in an aerial combat and captured its pilot, who was handed over to India on March 1.

Paris-headquartered Financial Action Task Force (FATF) on February 22 condemned the Pulwama terror attack and decided to continue the 'Grey' listing of Pakistan for its failure to stop funding of terrorist groups such as JeM, Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jamat-ud-Dawa.

The FATF continuing Pakistan with the 'Gray' listing means downgrading of the country by multilateral lenders like the International Monetary Fund, World Bank, Asian Development Bank, European Union and also a reduction in risk rating by Moody's, S&P and Fitch, according to experts.
