China renews commitment for ensuring success of CPEC
ISLAMABAD/ BEIJING: China has renewed its commitment to work with Pakistan to ensure the success of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
Briefing newsmen in Beijing on Monday, Chinese Foreign Ministry’s Spokesman Lu Kang said CPEC was a flagship project of One Belt, One Road initiative, and it could win more recognition and support from regional countries and the international community.
He said the CPEC was a new type of cooperation framework built up by China and Pakistan for long-term cooperation development.
When his attention was drawn towards reports regarding the creation of a cell by the Indian intelligence agency to target the CPEC as well as various statements of Indian leadership to this effect, he replied, “we have noted relevant reports.”
Responding to a query about Indian President Ram Nath Kovind’s visit to Arunachal Pradesh, the spokesman commented that the Chinese government had never acknowledged the so-called Arunachal Pradesh. “Our position on the border issue is consistent and clear.”
The spokesman said the relations between China and India were at a crucial moment.
