ISLAMABAD–The Foreign Office spokesperson Tasneem Aslam during a weekly briefing on Thursday, said that a mechanism has been devised for early implementation of memorandums of understanding (MoUs) and agreements signed by China and Pakistan during the Chinese president’s visit to Pakistan.
“PM Nawaz chaired a meeting soon after the Chinese president’s visit, and it was decided that there would be regular monitoring of these projects,” she said.
In response to a question, Aslam said that other countries in the region should also realise that early completion of the Pak-China Economic Corridor (PCEC) would be in their interest as well.
