People's Daily, April 22, 2015

President Xi Jinping's two-day visit to Pakistan this week was the first official visit by a Chinese head of state to its western neighbor in nine years. China's state-run newspaper People's Daily gave ample front-page coverage to the trip that concluded Tuesday, with four large photographs and the text of Xi's remarks to the Pakistani Parliament.

The daily notes that the meeting with Pakistan President Mamnoon Hussain included major accords on economic and cultural cooperation between the two countries, totaling some $46 billion in contracts, as well as a five-year training program to train 1,000 Pakistan teachers in the Chinese language.

Not mentioned in People's Daily’s coverage Wednesday, nor in Xi’s speech to Parliament, is that Pakistan is planning to buy eight submarines from China as part of enhanced security and military cooperation between the two countries. Indeed, Beijing is increasingly concerned about ties between radical Muslim groups in Pakistan and the East Turkestan Islamic Movement, based in the northwest Chinese region of Xinjiang.

Central to the tragic absurdity of this war is the question of language. Vladimir Putin has repeated that protecting ethnic Russians and the Russian-speaking populations of Ukraine was a driving motivation for his invasion.

Yet one month on, a quick look at the map shows that many of the worst-hit cities are those where Russian is the predominant language: Kharkiv, Odesa, Kherson.
