Hanzhong

;) . Dr. A.Q. Khan is said to have paid a visit China to provide technical support to the Chinese nuclear weapons program. The KRL also aided China in building the centrifuge facility in Hanzhong province (Hanzhong), roughly built in the same style as the original design of KRL. When it was reported, Chinese regime offered back the HEU fuel, but Pakistan refused, calling it a gift of gesture to China. However, after Khan was convicted in Amsterdam and later returned to country in 1986, he stopped his activities as General Zia-ul-Haq had formed a military unit to monitor Khan. Khan restarted his activities after the assassination (Death of Zia-ul-Haq) of General Zia-ul-Haq in an aircraft crash. When Cao Cao began gathering armies with the intent of invading Hanzhong, then under the rule of Zhang Lu (Zhang Lu (Three Kingdoms)), Han Sui and Ma Chao suspected that it was they, and not Zhang Lu who would be attacked. The two of them gathered warlords from the western regions and went to war against Cao Cao. In the course of the conflict, however, Cao Cao managed to turn Ma Chao and Han Sui against each other. Han Sui realized that there was no hope for victory with the forces divided against each other in suspicion, and retreated once again to Liang province. Cao Cao captured and killed Han Sui's son and grandchildren. Subsequently, Liu Bei received news that Cao Cao was planning to attack Hanzhong, which was seen as the northern gateway into Yi Province, so he quickly requested for a border treaty with Sun Quan. He asked Sun Quan to give him back Lingling and create a diversion for Cao Cao by attacking Cao's stronghold at Hefei; in return, Liu Bei ceded Changsha and Guiyang to Sun Quan, setting the new border along the Xiang River. Sun Quan agreed to the treaty terms. An alternative story of Liu Shan's early life was given in ''A Brief History of Wei (Weilüe)'' by Yu Huan. It was said that Liu Shan, then already several years old, was separated from Liu Bei when the latter was attacked by Cao Cao in Xiaopei (小沛; present-day Pei County, Jiangsu) in 200. He somehow landed in Hanzhong and was sold by human traffickers. Only when Liu Bei declared himself emperor in 221 was Liu Shan reunited with his father. However, this story was rejected by Pei Songzhi, annotator of the ''Records of Three Kingdoms'', taking into account of various sources. Jiang Wan's regency Jiang Wan was a capable administrator, and he continued Zhuge Liang's domestic policies, leaving the government largely efficient. He was also known for his tolerance of dissension and his humility. Not having much military aptitude, however, he soon abandoned Zhuge Liang's policy of waging war against Wei, and indeed in 241 withdrew most of the troops from the important border city of Hanzhong to Fu County (涪縣; in present-day Mianyang, Sichuan). From that point on, Shu was generally in a defensive posture and no longer posed a threat to Wei. (This was in fact misinterpreted by many Wu officials as a sign that Shu was abandoning the alliance and entering into a treaty with Wei, but was correctly read by Wu's emperor Sun Quan as merely a sign of weakness, not an abandonment of the alliance.) In 263, Sima Zhao launched his attacks, led by Deng Ai, Zhuge Xu, and Zhong Hui. Liu Shan followed Jiang's previous plans and ordered the border troops to withdraw and prepare to trap Wei forces, rather than to confront them directly. The plan, however, had a fatal flaw—it assumed that Wei forces would siege the border cities, which, instead, Deng Ai and Zhong Hui ignored, and they advanced instead on Yang'an Pass (陽安關; in present-day Hanzhong, Shaanxi), capturing it. Jiang Wei was able to meet their troops and initially repel them, but Deng Ai led his army through a trecherous mountain pass and deep into Shu territory. There he launched a surprise attack on Jiangyou (江油; in present-day Mianyang, Sichuan). After defeating Zhuge Zhan there, Deng Ai had virtually no Shu troops left between his army and the capital Chengdu. Faced with the prospect of defending Chengdu against Deng Ai's troops with no defenses, Liu Shan took the advice of Secretary Qiao Zhou and promptly surrendered. While the surrender was criticized by many, Wang Yin (王隱) in his ''Records of Shu'' (蜀記) described the move as a policy that placed the welfare of the people on top. Zhong Hui and Deng Ai faced little opposition from Shu Han's forces, whose strategy was to draw the Cao Wei forces in and then close on them—a strategy that backfired, as the Cao Wei forces, much quicker than expected, lept past Shu Han border cities and immediately onto the important Yang'an Pass (陽安關, in modern Hanzhong, Shaanxi), capturing it. Still, Jiang Wei was able to regroup and block off the Wei forces from further advances—until Deng Ai led his troops over a treacherous mountain pass, descending on Jiangyou (in modern Mianyang, Sichuan), defeating Zhuge Zhan and heading directly for the Shu capital, Chengdu. Surprised by Deng Ai's quick advances and believing that Jiang Wei would be unable to return fast enough to defend the capital against Deng Ai, the Shu Han emperor Liu Shan surrendered to Cao Wei. During the campaign, in light of the successes, Sima Zhao had the emperor Cao Huan bestow on him the title of the '''Duke of Jin''' and accepted the Nine Bestowments.
