ISLAMABAD: Minister of Planning, National Reforms and Development Ahsan Iqbal on Thursday has said that no change has been brought in the decided route of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

He explained the details of the project in a briefing in the All Parties Conference (APC).

He said that there are several misconceptions regarding the CPEC.

Iqbal said that not one province would have to compromise over its right regarding the project.

He said that the Multan-Sukkur Motorway would cost at least Rs 2.4 billion. After the construction of the motorway, the third route of the CPEC would be given a go ahead, he added.

Iqbal called for a better understanding among the parties’ leaderships over the Pakistan-China project. He said that no political party wishes to form a working group through this project.
