In a move that is bound to raise hackles in India, Pakistan is working on raising the constitutional status of its occupied Gilgit-Baltistan to address China's concerns over the USD 46-billion economic corridor through the strategic region. The strategic region in the north provides the only vital link with China. It is also on the key route of the ambitious
China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), linking western China to southern Pakistan's Gwadar Port with a network of roads, highways, railways and investment parks.
