Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad has rejected US concerns over Chinese investments in Pakistan.
Addressing a presser, Sheikh Rasheed said that their concerns were only because of Chinese investments rather than with any good intentions towards Pakistan.
“Whenever the US interests are fulfilled, they will leave Pakistan in the middle as they did in the past,” he said.
He said that the railway project-Main Line 1 (ML1)- was a key route of China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project and would soon be completed.
“The credit of completing this project goes to the [Prime Minister] Imran Khan, who has talked of it at every forum.”
The federal minister said that talks were also underway to initiate Main Line 2 (ML2) project.
Speaking over political future, Sheikh Rasheed said that the incumbent federal government would complete its tenure and he was not foreseeing any elections in the near future.
