Planning Minister Ahsan Iqbal on Monday has criticised an article published in Dawn claiming to be an “original plan of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC)”.

Furthermore the national daily also claimed that the documents have been made available to the public for the first time. The article claimed to reveal “what Chinese intentions and priorities are in Pakistan for the next decade and a half, details that have not been discussed in public thus far.”

Iqbal, severely condemned the article stating it to be “Dawn Leaks II.” “I am appalled by Dawn Leak II. CPEC long-term plan story based on working documents to distort final draft taken up with NDRC yesterday in Beijing,” the planning minister said in a tweet.


Iqbal went on to add that Dawn had not contacted him or the ministry to confirm the facts. He further stated in a tweet that this is an attempt to defame the CPEC by promoting fears.


Iqbal further mentioned in a tweet that the long-term plan could not have been disclosed by Pakistani government without consulting the Chinese. He called the Dawn story “half cooked” in a race to break the news first.



Pakistan inked new agreements worth nearly $500 million with China on Saturday ahead of Beijing’s international forum on its “Silk Road” trade and infrastructure initiative for Asia, Africa and Europe, the Pakistani government informed. The agreements signed add to the existing $57 billion portfolio already pledged for the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), a network of rail, road and energy infrastructure that is part of the wider Chinese project also known as the Belt and Road initiative, or One Belt, One Road.

If ever there was a text to convert a country into a subservient colony, this is it. It comes straight from East India Company manual. Pakistan has signed up to reduce itself from an Independent country, in name only, to a fully fledged dominion outpost of the Chinese.
Amazing, countries have fought to seek independence from colonial powers for centuries, Pakistan has signed up to become a colony. :cuckoo::sick:
Can point the part which will reduce our independence?

Someone in PMLN is pissed off with CPEC ... A good sabotage attempt especially at this stage.

Had this been a pure PMLN controlled project, this report would have stayed secret for longer.

A very interesting development. It seems Nawaz wants to go down fighting.

And yet most of u watch and read dawn news giving it ratings and sustainance to survive, lets announce a boycott of dawn news, let the pakistan defence forum announce it publicaly that dawn would be boycotted by its members and followers until they addopt a pro state narrative, i just dont believe it that this newspaper is still not banned here in pak after multiple security breaches, had it been anyother country including Us(the ka'aba of libtards) they would've been taken out a long ago using one excuse or another.

Dawn news paper has the backing of US. their mofo editor was seen with US ambassador recently.

Dawn is completely hand in hand with Nawaz as well .... this news would have never published had it not NS's blessing ...

Nawaz wants to be siyassi shaheed .... and he is doing all he can ... he will not hesitate damaging Pakistan ... and he's doing exactly that.

Let's see if there is another compromise ... and let's see how thin Chinese patience may be after this.

Dawn got excited but looks like this is non story to begin with. Also instead of just releasing the documents for public to read themselves, they come to their own conclusions. I mean wtf?

‘Dishonest Reporting’ by Dawn

An article published in the Dawn revealing what it claimed to be the “original plan of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC)” was based on the ‘obsolete’ and an outdated proposal from China Development Bank which dates back to 2015 and not the actual agreement between Pakistan and China, claimed Prime Minister’s Principal Secretary, Fawad Hassan Fawad.

The Planning Minister Ahsan Iqbal on Monday also refuted the article and termed it ‘Dawn Leaks II’ that seeks to malign the CPEC.

Talking to Daily Pakistan in China at OBOR Summit 2017, Mr Ahsan Iqbal said that Dawn report was based on dishonesty. Addressing the allegations of opacity, he said, “Dawn’s story is based on an outdated proposal by China Development Bank while the actual agreement is a bilateral document which is yet to be signed, how can we make it public unilaterally without consulting our partner before it is even signed? We will definitely make it public but first it needs to be signed both by Pakistan and China. The document that Dawn claims is current is actually one and a half year old based on reports by China Development Bank – not the actual agreement, there have been so many changes since then.”

“I am appalled by Dawn Leak II. CPEC long-term plan story based on working documents to distort final draft taken up with NDRC yesterday in Beijing,” the planning minister said.

He further mentioned that the long-term plan could not have been disclosed by Pakistani government without consulting the Chinese. He called the Dawn story “half cooked” in a race to break the news first.

“Definite angling in story to malign CPEC by promoting fears,” he added.

This 2015 "study"(not agreement) was done by Bank of China to prepare Chinese and what they should expect once in Pakistan in terms of , local people, politics, terrorism etc. Master plan or actual agreement which is supposed to be signed today in China isn't yet released.

Who created the first Dawn leak? Someone in PM house
Who released this CPEC doc to Dawn? Someone from PM house or Ministry of Planning

Whose incompetence is that?
Reasons/target of these leaks?

Soon, Maryam's barsati daddoos will be out in full force defending Nawaz & Co.

It was Confidential .... and this doc should not have been leaked by anyone in the government. It is the incompetence of PMLN Gov to let this and earlier leak happen.

And Dawn doesn't publish things that damage NS. This is sinister just like the first leak was.
