Pakistani state broadcaster apologises for error during PM Khan's Beijing speech

During his visit, Prime Minister Khan held talks with President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang mainly focussing on seeking China's loans to tide over serious financial crisis faced by Pakistan.

Ironically, securing an economic package for his financially-stressed country was on Khan's agenda. Last month, Pakistan received a $6 billion rescue package from Saudi Arabia, but officials say it is not enough and the country still plans to seek a bailout from the International Monetary Fund to avert a balance of payments crisis. Pakistan Television Corporation (PTV) had messed up the dateline of Khan's speech by spelling Beijing as "Begging".

Asked for her reaction to Umar's comments and how much China has offered to Pakistan, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said Beijing would provide assistant to the best of its capacity but did not specify the amount.

"We had told you about the $12 billion financing gap, of which $6 billion have come from Saudi Arabia, and the rest has come from China".

Wells, the US Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia, was in Islamabad on Tuesday to follow up on Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi's meetings with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo meetings in Washington last month. So the immediate balance of payments crisis of Pakistan has ended.

Some of his ministers too sounded critical of it.

Pakistan begins almost two weeks of talks with the International Monetary Fund on Wednesday over what would be the South Asian country's 13th IMF bailout since the 1980s to help it end a spiralling current account crisis. China while stating that it would extend necessary support to Pakistan, reportedly committed $6 billion funding.

About the outcome of Khan's visit, Hua said, "we believe his visit is very successful".

"Saudi Arabia could raise questions on Pakistan's offer of acting a mediator", she said, adding that the details of the loans taken from Saudi Arabia have also not been shared with the Parliament.

Prosecutors in NY had called her an al Qaeda sympathiser and sought life imprisonment.
