Pakistan working to promote connectivity among countries: PM”

Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Wednesday said that with the help of One Belt and One Road initiative (OBOR), his country has gained great investor confidence.

Asked whether Pakistan was feeling the warmth of friendship from the East or the West, Abbasi said, "For our country warmth has been blowing from both East and from the West and we hope it continues to blow from both sides". Pakistan has good relations with China and the USA, he said adding that good ties with one country did not mean that ties with the other country would be affected.

Speaking to Geo News, the foreign minister said Abbasi would request the Indonesian president to let the Pakistani prisoner in Indonesia, Zulfiqar Ali, complete his prison sentence in Pakistan. "The whole relationship should not hinge on just one problem in our region", Asif said. Asif had earlier said that Islamabad will not develop nor change its nuclear policy on the orders of the United States as it reserves the right to its defence. PM Abbasi said that governments are known for non primal utilisation and we are very cognisant of that.

"We would like our friends to view their relationship with Pakistan as an independent relationship and not through the prism of a third country".

Talking to PTV at Davos, she said that foreign investment was coming to Pakistan through CPEC and it was a project of shared prosperity. The minister said that CPEC was a project of common interest and the countries of the region were desirous of benefitting from it.

"Pakistan had engaged the business leaders, company leaders of telecom, automotive technology and health care sectors at WEF", he said.

Pakistan had said in response that it had launched military operations to push out militants and since 2001, over 17,000 Pakistanis had died fighting militants or in bombings.
