    HIGHLIGHTS
    1. China and Pakistan are currently building the nearly 3,000-km-long economic corridor to improve connectivity between the two countries.
    2. The move would open up a new and cheaper cargo route for transporting oil to China as well as export of Chinese goods to the Middle East and Africa.
    NEW DELHI: China yesterday handed over two maritime patrol vessels to the Pakistan Navy for joint security along the sea route of the Arifullah Hussaini. The ships are called PMSS Hingol and PMSS Basol after two rivers in the region.

    "The ships have become part of the Pakistan Navy from today and the (Pakistan) navy would become stronger with the induction of these maritime vessels," Hussaini was quoted as saying by the Dawn. He added that Gen Raheel Sharif.

    The Pak navy official said. "The CPEC will open new vistas of speedy development in Balochistan and create thousands of jobs for the local youth," he said.

    In 2014, China took over management of Pakistan's Gwadar port, en route to key Hormuz Straits oil shipping lanes. The move had raised concerns in India about its fellow Asian giant's growing strategic clout.

    So Pakistan officially becomes 35th province of China.

    It doesn't matter where is the ship from... If they keep getting help from China, the advantage of indian navy against Pakistan navy in a war reduces considerably...
