ISLAMABAD: China today pledged to provide $10 million to all-weather friend Pakistan for the rehabilitation of people displaced due to military operations in the restive tribal region, officials said.
The agreement to provide the special grant was signed between Chinese ambassador Sun Weidong and secretary economic affairs division Muhammad Saleem Sethi here.
这笔特别援助协议是中国大使孙卫东和秘书经济事务部门Muhammad Saleem Sethi在ysl堡签署的。
“China firmly supports the efforts of Pakistan to safeguard its national security and the Chinese side will continue to provide assistance within its capacity for the reconstruction and livelihood improvements of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA),” according to a statement by the Chinese embassy.
An official of finance ministry said that the grant from China will be utilised for the assistance of people of tribal areas who have suffered due to war on terror.
Over a million people were forced to flee their homes when army launched operation in the Taliban stronghold of North Waziristan last June.
More than 90 per cent of the district has already been cleared of militants and the government had launched a programme for the phased return of people to their areas.

China is the next united States of America, using Pakistan for its own benefits. it’ll not even ask about Pakistan once it’s work with Pakistan is done. this is what USA did, have birth to terrorists and now it blames Pakistan and Afghanistan. let’s see what China has to offer to Pakistan. a friendship of mere few years which I sense will end up in a debacle.

And I will definitely dump my Xiaomi Redmi Note 4g. As a country we are not US we can definitely live without Chinese goods. Indian Government should impose total ban on anything made in China. It’s simple as a consumer society we are too massive for any country to ignore, once we do this see how Chinese dragon will lap up to Indian elephant.
我会丢掉我的小米Redmi Note 4g的。
and in return china will get 100 terrorist for free :)))
