The minister said the CPEC belongs entirely to him and all of his units are satisfied with current progress of the mega project and their share in CPEC projects.

“My arms, legs, head, heart, brain, lungs, hair, eyes, every single part of my body – the rightful owner of the China Pakistan Economic Corridor – are on the same page regarding the ownership,” he said. “Just like the four provinces, the federal government, Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Gilgit Baltistan, and FATA.”

He said the 7th Joint Coordination Committee on CPEC is scheduled to meet on Monday in which chief ministers of all provinces, representatives of private sector, and representatives from China would participate, along with a finger, toe, hair, eyelash and nail from his own body.
