China's 7,500-Mile Undersea 'Peace Pipe' To Connect Belt And Road Countries 

The Trump administration spent the last several years bashing China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and called it a 'debt trap', and urged countries worldwide to resist allowing China to build infrastructure projects in their respected countries. With the Biden administration now in power, there has yet to be a visible protest from the White House of Beijing's new plan to construct a 7,500-mile submarine communications cable from Pakistan to Africa to Europe.

The high-speed, 7,500-mile Pakistan and East Africa Connecting Europe (PEACE) subsea communication cable system will offer high-capacity, low-latency routes connecting China, Europe, and Africa. In addition to France, the cable will land in Malta, Cyprus, Egypt, Djibouti, Kenya, Pakistan, and other countries with ultimate connectivity to China.

Some of the countries listed above are part of the BRI. China's motive behind the new undersea project is to provide high-speed internet connectivity to Chinese companies doing business in Europe and Africa.
