Pakistan's Imran Khan caught in 'begging' broadcast error in China

Pakistan's Imran Khan caught in 'begging' broadcast error in China

The report said that China's directive to Pakistan to not disclose the amount was compelled by the concerns of "regional partners" of Beijing.

Pakistan's finance minister Asad Umar who accompanied Khan said on Tuesday that China had promised at the highest level to help through an assistance package to tide over the crisis but did not reveal the amount.

The delegation will hold talks with Chinese officials to finalise a possible economic package, in a follow-up to Prime Minister Imran Khan's five-day visit to China last week.

"The Chinese premier asked PM Imran to leave the tariff lines aside and offered the $1 billion facility instead", he said, adding that the long-term solution to Pakistan's balance of payments troubles was enhancement in exports.

In his comments on Tuesday, Umar said "we had told you about the United States dollars 12 billion financing gap, of which $6 billion have come from Saudi Arabia, and the rest has come from China". China and Pakistan are iron brothers and together we will climb the highest mountains. "We will continue to offer assistance and support within our capacity to Pakistan for its economic and social development in light of its needs and upon agreement by both sides", the spokesperson said.

China has invested tens of billions of dollars in Pakistan in recent years as part of its Belt and Road Initiative - which aims to link the economies of Asia, Africa and Europe via huge infrastructural projects.

Hua said that China was satisfied with Khan's visit during which the two countries agreed to deepen their ties and to complete the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) with a stronger commitment.

Local media believes the gaffe is rather ironic since Khan is in Beijing to secure monetary aid from China to stall the impending economic crisis in Pakistan.

Chinese leaders such as President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang had friendly exchanges with him and established good relations.

The channel, PTV, apologised for the mistake and said, "Today, during a live address of the Prime Minister during his ongoing visit to China, a typographical error took place, which remained on screen for 20 seconds & later removed".
