ISLAMABAD:

National Security Adviser (NSA) Dr Moeed Yusuf invited on Tuesday the neighbouring countries to invest in the multimillion-dollar China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project, saying the project was a game-changer for the entire region.

In an exclusive interview with PTV news, Dr Moeed said that CPEC was not merely a name for a road or railway system, but a far-reaching mega project which would usher in an “economic revolution”.

The security adviser said that special economic zones would promote industrialisation in the country and help to attract more investment, and expressed hopes that “the dreams related to CPEC would come true as they have already started reaping fruits”.

He said the bilateral ties between Pakistan and China were gaining strength with each passing year, emphasising that China was a loyal friend that has always lent its support in every hour of need.

Dr Moeed, responding to a question about Kashmir, said that religious intolerance in India was growing under Prime Minister Modi. “No minority, including Muslims, Dalits, Sikhs and Christians are safe in India,” he added.

He also urged the international community to hold India accountable for human rights violations in Jammu and Kashmir.
