China promises support to Pakistan’s economy

Rising Kashmir

But while neither leader mentioned economic aid in front of reporters, China's top diplomat guaranteed support from Beijing in a separate meeting with his Pakistani counterpart.

Pakistan which has already secured a $6 billion loan from Saudi Arabia thinks the amount is not enough to clear the financial mess and has also sought a bailout package from the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

A report by the South China Morning Post quoted Cheng Xiaohe, deputy director of the centre for global strategic studies at Renmin University, as saying that while China would offer Islamabad financial assistance, it was the Pakistani government's responsibility to resolve its economic troubles.

Pakistan's foreign reserves have plunged 42 percent since the start of the year and now stand at about $8 billion, or less than two months of import cover. "And it has caught the imagination of the people of Pakistan", Khan said while meeting Li. China has pledged a total of more than $60 billion to Pakistan in the form of loans and investments for roads, ports, power plants and industrial parks to build what is termed the "China-Pakistan Economic Corridor".

India on Wednesday said it has lodged strong protests with China and Pakistan over the proposed bus service between the two countries through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) under the so called "China-Pakistan Economic Corridor" or "CPEC" project.

Thanking China for the love and affection extended to him on his visit, PM Imran said the love between Pakistan and China did not only exist on a state-to-state level but could also be witnessed on people-to-people basis.

The minister gave no specific information about China's financial assistance, saying the details were being discussed. "Pakistan unequivocally upholds the one-China policy and supports all efforts made by the Chinese government to realize national reunification", said the statement. "Against such a backdrop, the CPEC also has new opportunities and need to be further pushed forward", said the Chinese Vice Foreign Minister.

"You can't have a society with a small number of rich people and a sea of poor people", he said, adding that this inequality is stopping people from progressing.
