PTV makes 'begging' faux pas during Imran Khan's address in Beijing as Pakistan seeks Chinese aid

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.

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.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry did not give a clear answer when asked about it. "I want to make that clear in unequivocal terms that we do not have any balance of payments crisis now", said Umar, who accompanied Khan to China. We enjoy a very good relationship.

"In the light of Pakistan's need in future as per the mutual agreement, we will continue to help economically and in other sectors", Hua added.

Before his visit to China, Umar had said that at present Pakistan faced a total of United States dollars 27 billion deficit which included USD nine billion debt repayment this year.

Khan was in Beijing seeking financial aid to help end a spiralling balance of payments crisis after securing US$6 billion in support from Saudi Arabia and before Pakistan sat down to talks with the International Monetary Fund.
