    In a four-part series, Here & Now is looking at four specific countries in Asia and how China's growing economic influence is affecting the U.S.'s influence in the region.

    Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson talks to Shamila Chaudhary (@ShamilaCh), senior South Asia fellow at New America, about how China's influence is growing in Pakistan as American investment there has lessened.

    This segment aired on July 9, 2019.

    US will be foolish to hand over Pakistan to China and will invest to maintain strategic interest.

    That is unlikely in my opinion. The US deepstate is the main problem.

    US-China economies are tightly and both realised during the current trade war that hurting one, hurts the other. So we will see reduction of tensions between the two and coming to terms with the ground realities.

    Hey, that's complicated. US uses carrot and stick approach. While one department dangles carrot in front of you, the other tries to use stick. But you can stop the stick through posturing and setting the limits. Do the trade and refuse the aid.

    Hope not

    As Kissinger once said.
    It's dangerous to be Americas enemies but suicidal to be its friend.
