China again declines to reveal details of financial assistance to Pakistan

A blooper by state-run Pakistan Television Corporation (PTV) made the channel a target of online trolls after mistakenly the channel wrote Begging instead of Beijing as location tag during their Prime Minister Imran Khan's maiden address in China, who was speaking at the Communist party's Central Party School on Monday.

Khan is on an official trip to China to secure financial support from Beijing for his cash-strapped country.

"We had told you about the $12 billion financing gap, of which $6 billion have come from Saudi Arabia, and the rest has come from China".

The Chinese Foreign Ministry did not give a clear answer when asked about it.

"I want to make that clear in unequivocal terms that we do not have any balance of payments crisis now".

Umar spoke a day before the arrival on Wednesday of an International Monetary Fund team for a two-week visit to Islamabad to negotiate Pakistan's request for a 13th International Monetary Fund bailout since the 1980s.

About the outcome of Khan's visit, Hua said, "we believe his visit is very successful". Both the U.S. and Pakistani officials, however, said that she was arrested in Afghanistan.

"Imran Khan had supported me in the past as well".

Prosecutors in NY had called her an al Qaeda sympathiser and sought life imprisonment.
