ISLAMABAD Behind the ethnic violence, its the conflict of interests of regional powers that often spark unrest in the Caspian region and related belt. Some informed diplomats privy to the political scenario in Central Asian region believe that the ongoing ethnic unrest in Kyrgyzstan is part of the endless tug-of-war between the mighty regional powers for resources and influence. During a meeting with this scribe on Monday, a top envoy of a diplomatic mission from Central Asian region said that the growing influence of China among former Soviet Republics in general and Central Asia in particular had not gone well with Russia. Uzbeks are in minority in Kyrgyzstan but they are very prosperous and have strong control on economy in the country -there is a feeling among Kyrgyz public that a minority is ruling them that is supported by Russia, which often instigates violence, the representative said. According to the envoy, the precious lands, which Russian forces provided to Uzbeks in post Soviet era besides other economic aid, helped the ethnic minority rise in Kyrgyzstans economic fibre. This step, as the diplomat sees, was taken by Russia out of its cordial ties with Uzbekistan, to enhance its influence against China. Power politics is brutal, it segregated the Great Soviet Empire and still its not finished. After every deadly happening, people try to forget the past and there are dead bodies and blood, all over, again, believes the diplomat. According to China Policy Institute, 40 percent of CARs net annual trade takes place between Chinese province, Xinjiang and Central Asian Republics, depicting CARs dependence on China. Last year, the deadliest riots had taken place between Turkish backed Uyghurs and Chinese in Xinjiang province, China claiming over 200 lives. In 2008, fatal scuffles had erupted between Chinese forces and supporters of Dalai Lama in Tibet who are backed by India and the US. Apart from that, the deadly clashes between Kazakhs and Kyrgyz in the past, and growing hatred for foreign nationals, especially for Central Asians in Russian backed part of Ukraine, all have linkages to one regional power or other against their rival states, out of fiscal and political motives.
