IS­LAM­ABAD: Prime Min­is­ter Im­ran Khan said that China has barred the gov­ern­ment from dis­clos­ing the amount of fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance given in the aid pack­age ow­ing to con­cerns from Bei­jing's re­gional part­ners.

When asked dur­ing a Pak­istan Tehreek-e-In­saf (PTI) party meet­ing in Is­lam­abad on Thurs­day, the pre­mier said that China has given an aid pack­age like never be­fore, adding that, Bei­jing does not want the ex­act fig­ure of the aid to be dis­closed.

Talk­ing about the Tehreek-eLab­baik Pak­istan (TLP)-led protests against the ac­quit­tal of Aa­sia Bibi, PM Im­ran said that the gov­ern­ment had to tread is­sue care­fully be­cause of the sen­si­tiv­ity of the mat­ter.

He added that the pro­test­ers had been paid to take part in the sit-ins.

The prime min­is­ter went on to say that if the protests had not ended, it would have left the coun­try un­govern­able.

PM Im­ran said that af­ter com­ing into the gov­ern­ment, he has come to know of the scale of cor­rup­tion com­mit­ted un­der the Pak­istan Mus­lim LeagueNawaz (PML-N) ten­ure.
