Wikileaks suggest Chinese militants trained in Pakistan

Threat to Pakistan’s all-weather ally in new revelations

Wikileaks’ recently released Guantanamo Bay files suggest that Uighur separatists waging a low-intensity war against China obtained training and logistical support in Pakistan, the Times of India reports.

If substantiated and expanded to implicate the Pakistani military establishment or the Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate (ISI), the revelations could drive a wedge between Pakistan and its most crucial ally, as it is the threat of “losing” Pakistan to China altogether that prevents the US from taking a harder stance in Islamabad.
