Pakistan Army chief Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa is in China for talks with the top Chinese leadership and defence officials amid reports that the new government led by Prime Minister Imran Khan wants to renegotiate some of the projects under the multi-billion CPEC. His visit comes days after Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi's trip to Islamabad during which he held a comprehensive round of talks with Khan and Gen. Bajwa among others.

After Wang's visit, both China and Pakistan denied any differences over the projects related to the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) after Pakistan's Commerce, Textile, Industry and Investment Minister Abdul Razak Dawood was quoted as saying in a media report that Islamabad "should put everything on hold for a year so we can get our act together".

The minister is reported to have said this in an interview to the London-based Financial Times. He subsequently clarified that he was quoted out of context.
