Moreover, he remarked that the entire amount of support has crossed $90 million and emphasized that the Chinese Government, the Communist Party of China (CPC), the Chinese Army, Civil Society, Businesses, and the Red Cross have contributed to the amount.
He further asserted that some countries should provide practical assistance to Pakistanis instead of pointing fingers at the bilateral ties of Pakistan and China.
In this context, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Wang Wenbin, responded to the debt relief appeal by the US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, and underlined that both China and Pakistan share an excellent economic cooperation. He further advised the US to be of practical help instead of casting unfounded criticism on their ties.
