Pakistan has received a “big” package of aid from its all-weather ally, China, Prime Minister Imran Khan said Friday, but will not reveal the quantum of financial support as President Xi Jinping has asked him not to reveal it, a media report said.

Mr Khan made his maiden visit to Beijing earlier this month and met President Xi and Premier Li Keqiang and other Chinese leaders and sought aid to overcome the financial woes faced by his cash-strapped government.

The Pakistan government is facing grave economic challenges as it struggles to avoid a financial crisis and keep the economy afloat.
During an interaction with journalists at the PM House, Mr Khan said that Pakistan has received a “big” package of aid from China but will not reveal it, Geo News quoted Khan as saying.

The Prime Minister said he did not want to reveal the quantum of aid from Beijing as other countries will start demanding more money from China, the report said.

Chinese President Xi has asked him to not announce the quantum of financial support, the Geo News report quoted Imran Khan as saying.

Unlike Saudi Arabia, which has announced a USD 6 billion aid package to Pakistan, Beijing has not revealed the quantum of its financial aid to Islamabad.

    • right. Even if Imran Khan is not corrupt he has to be careful of all his ‘workers’. After all he personally may have some ‘pocket money’ from his rich ex-wife (who has very good relations with him still), but all his followers will not have that.
