The prime minister termed the occasion a welcome one for boosting trade with ‘Iron brother China’, PM Office Media Wing said in a press release.

He said the reopening of the Pass removed a hurdle that would further expedite pace of work on China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), adding restoration of the trade route between the two countries after a span of three years, was a matter of rejoice.

CPEC: entry of 3rd parties now looks imminent

The prime minister said that the journey, which had started way back in November 2019, had recommenced in the year 2023. He expressed his resolve to move ahead on CPEC with double speed in comparison to 2018.

He said: “CPEC is a gift of progress and prosperity given by Muhammad Nawaz Sharif and the Chinese leadership for the region and the people.”

The affection and cooperation from the Chinese leadership for the people of Pakistan were unforgettable, he added.

The prime minister said ‘a foreign-funded person’ had committed a crime of creating controversy over CPEC.

He appreciated the relevant authorities of the two countries and the team members over the restoration of trade and travel facility.
