Pakistan fully supports expansion of Silk roads: Masood Khan

Pakistan’s Ambassador to China Masood Khan said that his country will be glad to see more “Silk Roads” being built in the region to ensure common development as well as peace, stability and prosperity for their people.
This, he said will help affectively address the real issue of poverty and disparity that lead to terrorism and cross-border crimes.. He highlighted the importance of the Silk roads, while discussing the prospect of reviving a trade route across the vast Eurasian land, at the ongoing second China-Eurasia Expo in Urumqi, capital of the northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, where the Silk Road once threaded through. Pakistan supports the on-going efforts to expand the silk roads.
Seventeen state-level open ports, two international airports and extensive roads and railways link the landlocked Xinjiang, China’s westernmost region, to the country’s neighbors to the west. The second cross-border railway between China and Kazakhstan has been linked up and the China-Kyrgyzstan-Uzbekistan highway will soon be launched in full.
