Khan, who is on an official trip to China to secure an economic package for his cash-strapped country, was addressing a ceremony on Sunday at the Central Party School which was shown live by the Pakistan Television Corporation (PTV).

Both China and Pakistan are satisfied with the results of Prime Minister Imran Khan's visit and unanimously agreed to continue to work together to implement the consensus reached by the leaders and push China-Pakistan all-weather strategic partnership to a new level.

"Prime Minister Imran Khan's visit was very successful as it immediately provided very good opening in shape of the $1 billion facility", said Dawood, adding that Chinese Premier Li Keqiang had assured that if the facility was fully utilised by Pakistan, the facility would be raised to $2 billion in 2019.

According to the Ministry's spokesperson Hua Chunying, a number of achievements were made during the visit.

Earlier reports from Pakistan said Beijing has committed a similar amount during Khan's visit but Chinese officials declined to confirm it.

Khan, who has previously voiced opposition at global bailouts, went to China after receiving $6 billion in support from Saudi Arabia. China and Pakistan are iron brothers and together we will climb the highest mountains.
