PESHAWAR - Minister for Planning and Development Ahsan Iqbal on Wednesday said that there was no change in the route of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and it would pass through all the provinces.

Addressing a press conference here at Peshawar he said that the decisions taken at the All Parties Conference (APC) held on CPEC were being implemented. He briefed the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chief minister and parliamentarians on the CPEC’s route, as identified by different working groups formed after the signing of agreement on July 5, 2013.

He said that no route was agreed before signing of the CPEC agreement. However, different working groups later identified three main routes that would pass through all the four provinces.

He said that he addressed all the 13 reservations of the Pakhtukhwa chief mininster and asked him to give evidence, if any, regarding the route that was agreed before 2013 agreement. The concerns of the Pakhtunkhwa parliamentarians were addressed by him through documentary proofs, he said.
