No renegotiations over economic corridor with China: Pakistan

New Delhi : Pakistan has rejected reports claiming that they are planning to renegotiate deal over China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

"Foreign Minister underscored the significance of the CPEC for the mutual benefit of the people of both countries," the Prime Minister's Office said in a statement.

Pakistan and China pledged on Sunday to complete the USD 50 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) as Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi called on Khan and expressed desire to further enhance the bilateral strategic partnership.

Wang, who is on a three-day visit to Pakistan, met Imran Khan in Islamabad with a high-level delegation.

The two countries pledged to jointly promote the construction of the CPEC and push forward the development of bilateral ties.

Pakistan's new president Arif Alvi said friendship with China is Pakistan's national policy and over the past more than five decades, Pakistan has always cherished the friendship with China, which is based on mutual benefit and is deeply rooted in the hearts of the two peoples.
