China invites more countries to take part in CPEC projects
BEIJING: China on Monday termed the $50 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) as an "open initiative" and invited more countries to join the controversial project on the "principle of equality and voluntarism".
Commenting on the commissioning of a power plant built by China and Qatar in Karachi, Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson, Geng Shuang told a media briefing here on Monday that Qatar's participation showed that the CPEC is open for third country participation.
"This is the first project participated by the third country. It shows that the CPEC is an open initiative. We are willing to explore the participation of more countries with the principle of equality and voluntarism," Geng said.
