Whenever India did any projects with any country's assistance even when being supplied credit on very easy terms, India made sure- a)there was competitive bidding b) Indian engineers were 100% involved from assessment and design stages c)Control of projects remained with Indians d)there was constant transfer of knowledge and technology d)95% of workforce was Indian c)whereever the foreign company was allowed to operate in India, they could hold no more than 49% stocks and where it was more, they had to invest a certain % of profits back in Indian industry. What did Pakistani do- they gave blank cheque and… Read more »

Reading the comments by Pakistanis below, it is clear that they are living a lie, consumed by mindless hate for India and US. Pak blames US and India for misconceived reasons, the actual reasons being one of their own making. They will truly deserve whats coming to them. First of all you guys are thinking Imran will take Pakistan through all its issues, Pak army is going to make sure he is gone in new year to be replaced by another puppet. Imran had a)begun questioning CPEC bidding rstrictions and costs b)corrupt politicians from PPP and PML-N. However Pak Army… Read more »

Stop telling Pakistanis to worry about China-Pakistan friendship. Americans should worry about investing more money in causing more WAR-ON-TERROR and CIA trained terrorist groups like Osama Bin Laden to ruin the CPEC project and secure your benefits here in Pakistan.

Did you Pakistani idiots here in the comments section defending China even listen to her speech? Forget the speech, are you guys even reading up on what China is doing through CPEC? Here’s a dumbed down version: China wants to invest in Infrastructure through CPEC. It says it will loan out the money to Pakistan on the condition that it’s Chinese companies who will be handed the contract. Chinese companies then bring in labor from China. Pakistan pays the Chinese companies the money that was loaned from China to build infrastructure. But the entire risk of the loan has to… Read more »

Yes, America can support Pakistan by being once in Pakistan’s lifetime to be sincere with Pakistanis , people are Not stupid they know when they have been fooled & taken for ride . America needs Pakistan to have a say in the area. My two cents, do what you preach 🇵🇰❤️🙏🏼

America sincerely should be first time in 70 years be part in progress of Pakistan. History of CETO , CENTO , PROMISE OF SEVENTH FLEET in 1971 , F 16 vs wheat sale , using Pakistan against Russia once the war was one leaving Pakistan high & dry , 9/11 etc. People in Pakistan want to have good relationship with all countries in the world that includes America & India . Pakistan strategic position in the world is open to every country in the world 🇵🇰❤️🙏🏼

Private investments are very much related to law and order. So far no IMF program nor grants have worked for Pakistan. The loses to the economy due to war in Afghanistan and its fall out. She did not highlight this point.
Pakistan should go ahead with CPEC.

Besides China which other country stands with Pakistan… Malaysia… Turkey… any other..? Pakistan needs to have good governance , honest politicians… the common citizens of Pakistan suffers due to high price and lack of opportunities…. China may be good for short term but for long term Pakistan needs to get self reliant… best of luck Pakistan…

America needs to prove their goodwill to Pakistan. Only way to do that is to force a plebiscite in Kashmir by imposing sanctions and embargoes on India.

Where was USA 5-6 when Pakistan was going through extreme crises? When we lost 75,000+ people and $30bn dollar to the economy? Let me guess, they were behind our losses. It's okay though, we believe in moving on but that wouldn't come at our cost again. You're all welcome to invest in CPEC and even work with the Chinese and Pakistani people but you can't tell us what to do. It's our time to shine.

Americans ask why we hate them, whenever this question is asked i am always surprised by the idiot who ask it, answer is quite simple, we are always betrayed by America. You don't agree? ok let's discuss what happened during the soviet war with Afghanistan, who created Afghan Taliban? was it not US who funded them and provided everything including aid and arms? who left Pakistan in hell after the war? ok if you don't agree with this as well, lets come to what happened in Afghanistan, same United States asked Pakistan to turn their guns towards the same Afghan… Read more »
