The Embassy of China in Pakistan gave a strong reaction and asked America to stay out of region’s person matter.

According to the press release, while rejecting the senior US diplomat Alice Wells’ negative rhetoric against China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) the Embassy of China in Pakistan termed it a pack of lies.

The press release further stated “We also want to advise the US that when you accuse China, you should first look back what have you done to Pakistan, and think about how much contribution have you made for Pakistan.

Did Ms. Wales bring any aid, investment or trade for Pakistan during her visit?” If the US truly cares about the development and prosperity of Pakistan and this region, it should bring cash and funds, promote win-win cooperation on the basis of mutual respect, fairness, and justice, rather than act as a world policeman, spreading rumors and trying to hurt China-Pakistan relations, the Chinese Embassy added.

Top Priority, CPEC, says Dr. Firdous

Earlier, acting Assistant Secretary for South and Central Asian Affairs of the US State Department Alice Wells, during her recent visit to Pakistan, has claimed that there is no transparency in China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) projects and Pakistan’s debt burden is growing due to Chinese financing.

She also said that the Chinese companies joining CPEC were in World Bank’s blacklist. “We would be more than glad to see the US develop its relationship with Pakistan, but we strongly oppose the US interference in China-Pakistan relations and the CPEC.”
