Our country is going through a low point, PM Khan tells China

The two countries are building the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), a multi-billion-dollar project at the heart of Xi's Belt and Road Initiative, an ambitious trade infrastructure programme spanning the globe. "Unfortunately we have inherited a very hard economic situation", PM Khan said.

The minister went on to say that the prime minister's China visit would rid the country out of economic crisis.

According to reports from Pakistan, the new bus service will be launched between Lahore in Pakistan and Kashgar in China via PaK on November 3. He said his government had been working on two paths, including an International Monetary Fund (IMF) programme and support from friendly countries. He said we desire to learn from the experiences and successes of China in different sectors.

Prime Minister Imran Khan met Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing on Friday while on his first official visit to China, Radio Pakistan reported. "Unfortunately our country is going through a low point at the moment", he said.

"Therefore, any such bus service through Pakistan-occupied Jammu and Kashmir will be a violation of India's sovereignty and territorial integrity", Kumar said.

Hailing Pakistan ambassador for her stance, Geelani said all member countries including India is aware about the historical evidences and aspects of Kashmir issue, saying it was India that took the Kashmir issue to the United Nations and added that eighteen resolutions were passed in favour of right to self-determination of the people of Jammu and Kashmir and this august institution stands guarantee for this resolution, but unfortunately it has miserably failed to safeguard its own reputation and unless it shuns the stains of importance, inability, and helplessness, oppressed people like those of Jammu and Kashmir will continue to live in hell like atmosphere under the threatening shadow of gun from its oppressor.

Xi assured Khan that China considers its relations with Pakistan a diplomatic priority.

China promised to support Pakistan's economy on Friday.

49ers grades vs. Raiders: San Francisco’s first complete game of 2018
The Oakland Raiders are 1-7 in the Jon Gruden era so far, but Gruden is still optimistic about the future of the franchise. The 49ers also ran for 143 yards, none more glaring than Raheem Mostert's 52-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

An IMF delegation is due to visit China next week and the Khan government wants to minimise the bailout package it seeks from the global lender.

The premier is accompanied by Bakhtiar, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Finance Minister Asad Umar, Railways Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, Adviser to the Prime Minister on Commerce, Industry and Investment Abdul Razzak Dawood, and Chief Minister of Balochistan Jam Mir Kamal on his trip to China. Yao Jing, China's ambassador to Pakistan, told reporters in Islamabad on October 27 that Pakistan is expected to receive good news from the visit.

Agreements pertaining to poverty alleviation in Pakistan, strengthening cooperation in agriculture and industrial sectors and technical training were signed by the two sides.

The Prime Minister, who left on a four-day official visit to China said that low crime was easy to check but tackling white collar crime needed speciality and expertise which Pakistan was struggling.

India and Pakistan have been disputing the status of the Jammu and Kashmir region since the end of British rule in 1947.

"China wants to avoid such transparency because exposing the terms of the CPEC project agreements could validate the USA criticism of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) as a debt trap for emerging economies", the Post report said.

"Khan's trip is important for reasons beyond the immediate financing needs", Uzair Younus, a South Asia director at Washington-based consultancy Albright Stonebridge Group LLC, said by email.
