Senator Mushahid Hussain said CPEC was already producing results as Pakistan's worldwide image had changed, Pakistan had become a pivotal player in the region, Pakistan had registered the highest growth rate in 10 years, projects like Gwadar port and Thar coal had not only been revived but were thriving and the Western Route was being built on schedule.
The Financial Times report quoted an anonymous Pakistani official as saying that Beijing has made "a lot of progress" with regard to convincing militants to not target projects under CPEC.
Voicing concerns over the USA policy on Afghanistan, the Chairman Senate said that Washington wants to make New Delhi "policeman of the region" but this is not acceptable either to Pakistan or to the other people of the region.
The Pakistan Senate has approved a motion to declare Chinese an official language, the news agency ANI reported, quoting Pakistani media.
Addressing the ceremony which also marked the launch of Chinese language classes in Islamabad, Chairman Senate Raza Rabbani said that the CPEC will mutually benefit both Pakistan and China in strategic and economic realms.
February 19, 2018 (EIRNS)-According to a report by London's Financial Times, Chinese officials engaged in implementing the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) have been talking to Baloch tribal separatists for nearly five years.
The 1973 Constitution recognises Urdu as Pakistan's only national language. It doesn't make the language official in any sense.
Not just Indian media houses, even Pakistan's Ambassador to the US Hussain Haqqani also fell for the fake news.
While Punjabi is the first language for 44 percent of Pakistanis, 15.42 per cent of the residents speak Pashto, 14.5% speak Sindhi and 4% speak Balochi.
Rejecting the impression that Pakistan will not gain any economic benefits from the CPEC, the research report prepared by Pakistan-China Institute, states that the mega-corridor project will change the perception of Pakistan and promote it as an investor-friendly nation.
Pakistanis are more interested in learning the Chinese language than ever before as they expect that knowing Mandarin would mean more job opportunities in Pakistan and China, according to the Dawn newspaper.
