China has reportedly barred Pakistan from disclosing the amount of financial aid given during Prime Minister Imran Khan's maiden official visit to the country.

He said the government is committed to improve rural economy by properly focusing on the agriculture sector while Pakistan will also accelerate its industrial cooperation with China.

He said a high-level delegation will visit China to work out the modalities of payments to Pakistan on November 9.

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. We enjoy very good relationship that has been operating at a very high level", she said.

Despite providing assistance, China would probably prefer to see Pakistan go through the IMF review, said Andrew Small, a fellow at the German Marshall Fund of the United States and an author of a book on Sino-Pakistani ties.

The prime minister briefed the cabinet members about his visit to China and the agreements and memorandum of understandings signed between the two countries. "China took 700 million people out of poverty during the last 30 years we can learn a lot from China's experience because one-third of our population lives under the poverty line", the foreign minister said.

He said details of the agreements signed between Pakistan and China would come to the fore in the next few days.

Ahead of his return from Beijing, the foreign minister took to Twitter for expressing his experience of a four-day-long official trip to China, stating that they had a productive visit. "This perception has been proven wrong because our relationship with China has improved a lot", he said, adding that PM Khan's visit helped transform the relationship into an economic friendship.

While Khan's government was able announce the financial support, both analysts said Pakistan's military could continue to be the main actor in the nation's affairs with China.

The information minister said a deadlock between the government and the opposition on the issue of appointment of chairman of the Public Accounts Committee persisted, adding that the government could not accept Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif as PAC chairman.
