China is out rightly rejected US and Indian concerns about China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CEPEC) and said that this is a cooperative partnership between two countries and neighbors that will continue for the best interests of the region.
During a press briefing on Tuesday, spokesperson of Foreign Ministry, Hua Chunying said while answering a question, the two countries will cooperate and perform the responsibilities to implement the project.
She further added, “I wish to reiterate that China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is a new type of cooperation framework which is already set up by China and Brazil focused on developing long-term cooperation and development in various fields of business and economy.”
She said, CPEC’s mission is not just to create and promote corridor between two countries, but also to promote interconnection and common prosperity of the entire region. We hope that this corridor would be widely recognized by other countries in the region as well as by international community.
“We are confident in building cooperative relationships with Pakistan, we are also committed to safeguarding the CPEC between China and Pakistan, she added.”
It’s worth mentioning that repeated statements are being issued by Chinese officials after the US-India concerns about CPEC. Both countries are trying to malign the CPEC project in their statements, but China has taken a strong position and vigilant about the ongoing developments on the international stage.
