Railways Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmad said on Saturday that criticism on China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) was a conspiracy against the friendship between Pakistan and China. Addressing a press conference here at PR headquarters, he said that anti-Pakistan elements wanted to create differences between Pakistan and China, however, Pakistani nation was standing with the CPEC.
He said that conspiracies had been hatched in several countries like Iraq, Iran, Yemen, Libya and several other countries and the same enemy wanted to destabilize Pakistan through any conspiracy. Talking about the recent situation about extension in the service of Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Qamar Javaid Bajwa, the minister said the government would successfully amend the law about the extension within six weeks instead of given six months.
He said the COAS deserved the extension as he strongly hit India by supporting the opening of Kartarpur Corridor and turned the positive sentiments of Sikh community towards Pakistan.
