Anti-Pak. forces want to sabotage CPEC: Qureshi

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi Friday said that some anti-Pakistan forces wanted to sabotage China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project and vowed that perpetrators of Chinese Consulate attack in Karachi would be brought to justice.
Talking to a private television channel, he said the Chinese government had appreciated the timely action of Karachi police and expressed sympathies with the bereaved families of martyred police.
To a question, the foreign minister said Prime Minister Imran Khan wanted to attend the National Assembly sessions but the opposition behavior in the House had been very aggressive.
Qureshi said the Opposition instead of Shahbaz Sharif should nominate someone else for Chairmanship of Public Accounts Committee. He said the Prime Minister would not compromise with corrupt people and added that the Prime Minister would take the nation into confidence on November 29.
He said the tense atmosphere created by the Opposition in the Parliament was in nobody’s interest. He said that it was a long desire of the Opposition to dislodge the PTI government, but added that the treasury benches should have patience.
He said the government had no objection over a Charter of Economy as it wanted to have consensus on it and resolve the economic problems of the country. He added that the government wanted to bring a long-term policy for the economic turnaround of the country.
Terming the Prime Minister’s visit to China very encouraging and successful, the foreign minister said, the Chinese leadership had given a clear message to Pakistani leadership during this visit.
