After Imran Khan Trip China Backs Pak On Dispute With India Nuke Group

On Tuesday, sources had said the Pakistani consul general in Houston paid Dr Siddiqui a visit on October 9 during which she made the request to convey her message to the prime minister.

The faux pas is seen particularly ironic since the Pakistani premier is on a mission to secure a package from China to overcome a major economic crisis his country is confronted with.

During Khan's visit to Saudi Arabia last month, the Gulf Kingdom agreed to provide Pakistan USD 3 billion in balance of payment support and additionally give oil worth USD 3 billion on deferred payment. Pakistan Television Corporation (PTV) had messed up the dateline of Khan's speech by spelling Beijing as "Begging".

In his comments on Tuesday, Umar said "we had told you about the Dollars 12 billion financing gap, of which USD 6 billion have come from Saudi Arabia, and the rest has come from China".

Addressing Investment Conference in Shanghai China, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi says CPEC will further boost up historical relationship between Pakistan and China.

Pakistan's current account deficit widened 43% to $18 billion in the fiscal year that ended in June, while the fiscal deficit has ballooned to 6.6% of gross domestic product.

Pakistan is also seeking a bailout from the International Monetary Fund (IMF). China while stating that it would extend necessary support to Pakistan reportedly committed Dollars six billion funding but did not so far officially confirmed it. Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said.

Siddiqui was interrogated by United States officials in Afghanistan when she grabbed a rifle and opened fire, shouting "death to Americans".

Prime Minister Imran Khan in a meeting with Ambassador of Yemen Mohammed Motahar Alashabi in Islamabad on Wednesday assured the envoy of Pakistan's "unwavering support in the early resolution of the conflict" in Yemen.

She was also accused of working for Al Qaeda.
