Nawaz Sharif: Pakistan to link Gawadar with China via Railways

Nawaz Sharif has become the 27th Prime Minister of Pakistan after the Elections 2013. In his first speech in parliament of Pakistan he disclosed that in near future Pakistan will link its both seaports Karachi and Gawadar sea port with China via Railway Track.

Earlier this year Islamabad and Beijing have expressed a keen desire to implement the Gwadar-Khunjerab-Kashgar rail network. The project had been discussed during talks with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang in his recent visit to Pakistan.

It is said to be a very bold decision by Pakistan to build a railway track, Rail Route and Road Network between Gawadar and China. Complete details of this project would be shared later. Pakistan and China will soon establish a task-force to complete the project within the next five years.
