The channel, PTV, apologised for the mistake and said, "Today, during a live address of the Prime Minister during his ongoing visit to China, a typographical error took place, which remained on screen for 20 seconds & later removed". They issued a joint statement and gave a comprehensive introduction to the specific results of the visit.

No reason has been given by the government to remove the official, however, the decision to remove Mohamedi was taken two days after the state-run television made a blunder when Prime Minister Imran Khan addressing a ceremony in Beijing during his first official visit to China.

A court in northwest Pakistan on Wednesday summoned Prime Minister Imran Khan to appear before it on December 13 in a case filed by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf chief's rival candidate in the July 25 general elections over his alleged relation with a USA national, Sita White.

"The Chinese premier asked PM Imran to leave the tariff lines aside and offered the $1 billion facility instead", he said, adding that the long-term solution to Pakistan's balance of payments troubles was enhancement in exports. While welcoming Imran Khan, he said, "Pakistan China relations have already been strengthening, and now gained momentum".

"Pakistan is China's all weather partner".

A high-level delegation from Pakistan left for China on Thursday to finalise a potential relief package to inject in the country, sources familiar with the matter said.

The third is to expand the strategic communication between the two countries.

Pakistan is also seeking a bailout from the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Hua said that China was satisfied with Khan's visit during which the two countries agreed to deepen their ties and to complete the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) with a stronger commitment.

They also agreed to strengthen cooperation in the fields of economy, trade, finance, science and technology, agriculture, humanities, etc., and signed 15 cooperation agreements in related fields. Fifth, it has strengthened coordination and cooperation in global and regional affairs, and emphasised support for multilateralism, free trade, and win-win cooperation, and promoted lasting peace and common prosperity in the region and the world.

Khan visited China from November 2 to 5 during which he held talks with President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang for China's help to tide over the serious economic crisis faced by cash-strapped Pakistan which included a balance of payments. "We enjoy very good relationship that has been operating at a very high level", she said.
