President Mamnoon Hussain Saturday said that there had not been even a minor change in western or other alignment of the designated route of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
Addressing the passing out ceremony of the 53rd batch of cadets of Pakistan Marine Academy here, he said it was necessary for economic stability that all types of negative propaganda was rejected and joints efforts were made for the future of our children.
“The elements and forces bent upon hindering the progress of Pakistan should give up negative approach and play a positive role for the future of their children,” he added.
The President said the CPEC would bring revolutionary economic change and prosperity in the country, as the landlocked countries of the Central Asia would have access to other regions of the world.
The Central Asian countries were also working to benefit from that initiative, which reflected the significance of the project.
He said the CPEC had connected western China with Gwadar in Balochistn, which had linked a major part of the world with the region.
President Mamnoon Hussain said sea and marine routes were Pakistan’s strength and the country would benefit from it.
He emphasised upon the need for paying attention towards improving professional capabilities to promote marine trade.
He expressed his pleasure that the Pakistan Marine Academy was successfully playing its role in this regard.
He said that Pakistan’s brave nation dealt with terrorism and extremism effectively and rendered great sacrifices for the cause. —APP
