ISLAMABAD: Dismissing India’s concerns over the Pakistan-China Economic Corridor, Pakistan said that the $46 billion project will prove to be beneficial for the entire region.

The Foreign Office has responded to the Indian Minister’s statement strongly, stating that Pakistan is committed to the project as it will benefit the entire region.

On May 31, Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi “very strongly” raised the issue regarding China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) during his recent visit to Beijing, and termed the project “unacceptable”.

  1. The time was 2008 / 2009 and Pakistan taken back by a vicious brutal terror proxy and her reach in Pakistan.

    The supposed peace loving Indians were rejoicing and releasing maps that later circled the corridors of Washington under a neoconservative government about a dismembered Pakistan.

    The Indian Internet trolls were out doing themselves with claims of moving beyond Chinese economic development to become the world’s most largest economy and superpower.

    Under the Americanand ISAF umbrella the Indians plotted against us heinous terror plots through their armed proxies all while any accusations against India were going un abated.

    I said then the year will be 2015 and WE will puck up from where we left off.

    We will overcome these darkest times in our history and we will remain both strategic and a decisive power in this region to balance Indian nefarious designs.

    I said the year will be 2015 and you Indians will scurry like rats unable to comprehend a shift in geopolitics.

    That is very true of today and India scurry’s and throws her weight only to be ignored as a new reality emerges.

    Scurry scurry scurry fat bhaRATty.
    While we were in darkness in sorrow and shock we remained united as a people.

    Her lies are exceeding her.
    Her misinformation campaign is notched up.
    Her proxies are working overtime to kill brave courageous innocent Pakistanis.
    India scurries between USA Europe Russia and China not realising….

    There is a cool wind blowing across the Indus Valley. A wind of change and opportunity.

    In every decade India has tried to break us but opportunity comes along and knocks at our door.

    Strongly believe we have a great destiny.

    Love you Pakistan.

  2. Bharatis crying as usual. Just a few years back they were all ready to invade Pakistan before going back with their tail stuck between it’s legs. Pakistan will do whatever it wants, it’s IoK silly where your terrorist army is killing innocents.
