BEIJING: Terming China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) an important project under the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), Chinese foreign ministry’s spokesperson said it would be a positive factor if any other party would like to contribute positively to promote the inter-connectivity and prosperity of this region.

“CPEC is an important project under the BRI and as you all know, the BRI follows wide consultations, joint contributions and shared benefits. So, such cooperation has always been open and transparent,” Lu Kang told reporters during his regular briefing which resumed after the Chinese National Day holidays.

Responding to reports of Saudi Arabia’s joining as an investor in Pakistan, he said, “If any other party would like to contribute positive factors to promote the inter-connectivity and prosperity of this region, I think, on the basis of consultation, this is a positive factor.”
