BAZAR: China To Include Afghanistan in CPEC Project
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Tuesday that his country and Pakistan will look at extending their $57 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor to Afghanistan.
This would-be part of the China’s ambitious Belt and Road plan linking China with Asia, Europe and beyond, Wang said after the trilateral meeting with his Afghan and Pakistani counterparts Salahuddin Rabbani and Khawaja Asif, respectively.
Afghanistan has an urgent need to develop and improve people’s lives and hopes it can join inter-connectivity initiatives, Wang told reporters, as he announced that Pakistan and Afghanistan had agreed to mend their strained relations.
