CPEC a framework of several developmental projects: Pak Planning Minister

Islamabad [Pakistan], Jan 23 : Pakistan's Planning Minister Ahsan Iqbal has said that the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is not only a name of any road but a framework for several developmental projects.

In an interview given to a government news agency, Iqbal said that there was no understanding between Pakistan and China on the corridor project before 2013.

The minister said it is the endeavour of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif that this mega project initiated.

Iqbal said elements inimical to peace were spreading disinformation on social media just to halt the process of Pakistan's development.

Responding to a question, he said today Gwadar is much better than that of 2013, as the incumbent government is paying more attention on its development.
