China says it is unaware of Pakistan naval port proposal
BEIJING (Reuters) - China said on Tuesday that it had not heard of Pakistan's proposal for China to help it build a naval port at the deep water port of Gwadar.
"Regarding that specific cooperative project, I have not heard of it," Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu told a regular news briefing in Beijing.
"It's my understanding that during the visit last week this issue was not touched upon," she said.
She was referring to Pakistani Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani's visit to Beijing last week.
