Pakistani state broadcaster apologises for error during PM Khan's Beijing speech

PTV makes 'begging' faux pas during Imran Khan's address in Beijing as Pakistan seeks Chinese aid

The faux pas is particularly scathing since Khan is looking to secure support from China to overcome massive economic hurdles in the country.

Pakistan's current account deficit widened 43% to $18 billion in the fiscal year that ended in June, while the fiscal deficit has ballooned to 6.6% of gross domestic product. Last month, Pakistan received a $6 billion rescue package from Saudi Arabia, but officials say it is not enough and the country still plans to seek a bailout from the International Monetary Fund to avert a balance of payments crisis.

"Pakistan is China's all weather partner. I want to make that clear in unequivocal terms that we do not have any balance of payments crisis now". "We enjoy very good relationship that has been operating at a very high level", she said.

And of course we want to follow the rules, whether UEFA, FIFA or the Premier League", said the Spaniard, who joined City in 2016. Af for the FFP complaints, he stuck to the club's version: "I am part of the club and I support them completely".


Wells, the US Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia, was in Islamabad on Tuesday to follow up on Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi's meetings with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo meetings in Washington last month.

Dr Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani neuroscientist who was sentenced to 86 years in prison by a NY court in 2010, has sought Prime Minister Imran Khan's help to get out of prison.

"In the light of Pakistan's need in future as per the mutual agreement, we will continue to help economically and in other sectors", Hua added.

The unit swooped on the pupils at the Presbyterian school in Nkwen village in Cameroon, a local governor said. A government spokesman said it was keeping track of an event but that it could not comment further.


During Khan's visit to China, Pakistan media reported that Beijing had agreed to provide USD 6 billion in aid to the cash-strapped country which included a loan of USD 1.5 billion along with an additional package of USD 3 billion for the CPEC. Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said.

A government statement following Wells' visit said US-Pakistan bilateral agenda including the upcoming Geneva Conference and the Afghan peace process were discussed.

"Imran Khan had supported me in the past also", Siddiqui said in a message.
