PM has rejected US criticism on China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, saying that the Chinese rescued Pakistan by making huge investment.
He expressed these views during his interview to a US news channel CNBC, shown on Wednesday night. PM Imran Khan, on other hand, urged US President Donald Trump and the United Nations to mediate between Pakistan and India over Kashmir.
He further said that they are grateful to Chinese that they came and rescued them. Hadley Gamble conducted interview of the PM.
Khan said: “Chinese pumped in, not just they gave us loans—and the loans, by the way are barely five or six percent of the total portfolio,”. He also rejected the perception that CPEC was a debt-trap. These are Chinese invested in Pakistan and it was because of them that the country now has opportunity to attract foreign investment.
