China will have to confront the Three T’s of Trump, trade, and Taiwan, as well as the progressively unfolding and American-provoked New Cold War that it’s involved in with India, but Beijing could make positive geopolitical progress so long as its New Silk Road plans in Pakistan and ASEAN aren’t derailed by Hybrid War.
The silk road is of importance to the continental powers to control anti-social activities with wise diplomacy and good military strength combined with economic power generated purposefully.
Officially termed the One Belt One Road plan but colloquially referred to in the international press as The New Silk Roads, China’s global strategy is to tie itself together with all of its partners in a complex system of mutual economic interdependence that can provide a sustainable outlet for its domestic overcapacity.
The Ukrainian cargo delivery project bypassing Russia has failed, and now the container train sent to deliver the goods via the "Silk Road" has not re-entered the track due to lack of customers and products for transportation. This was reported by a number of outlets referring to the research center of logistics company Zammler.
