Other countries besides India oppose CPEC: President


ISLAMABAD: President Mamnoon Hussain said on Monday there were other countries besides India which were opposed to the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).


Addressing the convocation of the National Defence University the president said many other countries had reservations against the CPEC which he termed baseless, emphasising the government was fully committed to its completion.

The president added that the nation must stand by with the government and armed forces to overcome challenges faced by the country.

“The unity of the nation is vital to achieving the goal of peace and prosperity.”

President Hussain was critical of India’s propaganda against the CPEC and urged people to stand by the government to rebut it in a proper way.

The government is fully committed to reviving the economy and ensuring internal security by eliminating terrorists, he said.
