Rafique: Roll back the CPEC project.

Saudi Arabia has signed grant agreements with Pakistan to finance three road infrastructure and energy projects under the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), a news report has revealed.

According to the Dawn newspaper report, the agreements were signed by the Saudi ambassador and officials of Pakistan’s finance ministry.

“These agreements have been inked in line with the understanding reached during Prime Minister Imran Khan’s recent visit to Saudi Arabia,” Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry was quoted as saying by the newspaper.The first step has been taken as three grant agreements have been signed. This is a very positive step and bodes well for relations between the two countries,” Chaudhry said.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Saad Rafique on Sunday stressed that the government should quit its attempts to roll back the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor project.

Speaking to party leaders in Lahore, Rafique said the government’s failure was evident from its foreign policy.

“The government is trying to sabotage the CPEC project but it should quit its attempts to do so,” the PML-N leader said.

Further, the former minister also criticised the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government for ‘destroying public institutions.’

“The current government is destroying [public] institutions that we had improved,” the PML-N leader said. “We revived the railways department but the government seems to be inclined on destroying it.”
