Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman and Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Jiang Zaidong on Tuesday exchanged views on the ties between Pakistan and China.
A Chinese delegation headed by Zaidong held a meeting with Rehman in Islamabad. On the occasion, Rehman underscored the importance of including more projects in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
Rehman expressed his resolve to form industrial and economic zones in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan.
Zaidong said that both Pakistan and China can change the destiny of the region. ‘’We would want to see Pakistan gaining benefits from Chinese technology in the field of agriculture.”
The Chinese ambassador had invited the JUI-F chief to visit China. Rehman had accepted the invitation to visit China.
– New alliance –
Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) senior leader Rashid Mahmood Soomro on Sunday urged the need to form a new alliance to find alternatives to the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP).
Speaking to media in Mithi, Soomro asserted: “The alliance of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) was not an electoral alliance.
"There is a possibility that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P), and the Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA) can be part of the alliance,” Soomro added.
“We will soon provide alternative leadership to Sindh,” the JUI-F leader stated.
