    Prime Minister Imran Khan said that China has barred the government from disclosing the amount of financial assistance given in the aid package owing to concerns from Beijing’s regional partners, Express News reported.



    When asked during a Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party meeting in Islamabad on Thursday, the premier said that China has given an aid package like never before, adding that, Beijing does not want the exact figure of the aid to be disclosed.

    Talking about the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP)-led protests against the acquittal of Aasia Bibi, PM Imran said that the government had to tread issue carefully because of the sensitivity of the matter.



    He added that the protesters had been paid to take part in the sit-ins.

    The prime minister went on to say that if the protests had not ended, it would have left the country ungovernable.

    PM Imran said that after coming into the government, he has come to know of the scale of corruption committed under the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) tenure.

    Now the media reports of their corruption pale in comparison to the actual figures, he added.

    The government, the premier said, would not allow plunderers of the public wealth to be spared.

    A friend in need is a friend indeed.
    China is a true friend.

    Having said that, both the finance ministry AND the business community need to pull their heads outta their bungholes and start becoming aggressive export driven businessmen. In today's age, an aggressive and patriotic businessman is as important as a nuclear warhead!

    During Kargil China sent M11 missiles to Pakistan

    they also gave 40 x F7PG fighter jets pretty sure Pakistan never paid for them

    Ammunition ships docked at Karachi after 2 weeks

    China was on top of it when its needed no doubt about it

    China also gifted F6 basic fighter back in 1971 and 1965, they said its not very good but the best they had at the time

    Turkish and Iranians technicians helped integrate the American sidewinders missiles on the Chinese F6

    Now we are building JF17 Block III and China is doing J20

    How times have changed

    If you listen to Asad Umar he has said the country is now out of the 'insolvent' mode and in fact afford to be bullish with IMF. I actually do think the Chinese have agree to give sums but like KSA want it to remain anbigious lest others want similiar deals. For instance the three year $3 billion defered oil facility to Pakistan will be converted into grant later on amounting into a figure of $12 billion over three years. We can expect similiar figures from China and a policy to reduce the trade deficit with China over the coming years. I am glad that as this pans out the PTI government can now begin to concentrate on it's core agenda. Education, poverty allieviation, housing, health and improving governance.

    KSA term 6 billion for one year and that money will be returned at the end of 2019. But, Pakistan has to buy oil from KSA, nobody else. And support the exile govt of Yemen, Hadi .Khan will try to convince all groups in Yemen to accept Hadi as president of Yemen. . ...

    Agreed. China looks at the bigger picture and firmly follow the Sun Tzu Art of War that dictates that one hidden weapon is worth a hundred open weapon. It also dictates that you should make loyal friends stronger for they will double your strength in times of war.

    While at it, Pakistan MUST hang all politicians involved in tier one level corruption, confiscate all of their wealth and let their families be homeless on the streets.

    Punish these thieves severely, for they are not only thieves but enemies of the state because they operated on a script given to them by anti-Pakistan elements.

    Humiliate this scum in front of the whole world. They lead a nation down a disastrous path. Any other sane nation would have buried them along with their families. In Pakistan they get five-star VIP prisons.

    Start hanging these thieves called politicians and watch your economy grow.

    Should be written in gold!!!! Most of the Muslims might have forgotten many of the top early Muslim leaders were all very successful businessmen, trader, employer etc., and they financed the spread of Islam!!! 90% of Bereket lies in Tijaret as per a Hadis-i Sherif!!!! One of the fundamental causes behind the decline of the Muslim Empires is their neglect for business, trade, production etc. which lead to innovation, invention, modernization etc.!!! No financial/economic freedom, no physical freedom....

    The Deep Nations are the products of the Deep Empires with Deep History, Culture, Language, Philosophy, Commitments, Mindsets, Reflexes, Politics, Diplomacy etc....
