China has rejected a media report regarding delay in the construction of China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

During a regular briefing in Beijing, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Geng Shuang said that the Pakistani government has termed the project a priority for the country.

He said the Pakistani Ministry of Commerce issued a statement saying that the Pakistani officials quoted by the Financial Times were out of context and distorted the original intention and the Pakistani side refused to acknowledge the report.

Geng Shuang said new Pakistani government is committed to comprehensively deepening the construction of the Pakistan-China Economic Corridor and is willing to cooperate fully with China to build this project.
