When the reporter talked about Pakistan’s transformation from “the few countries in the world that successfully dealt with China and the United States” to “a country in the Chinese camp,” Quresi said, “We have been telling Americans: If you leave , Then someone must come in. If you don’t invest in Pakistan, you have no contact with Pakistan. How can you help establish bilateral relations with Pakistan? The only thing you can do is keep in touch (with us),” he said.
In the interview, Quresi compared the investment of China and the United States in Pakistan. He said, "If nothing happens in Afghanistan, then nothing will happen in Pakistan? Will the US not invest in Pakistan? Or, if China chooses to invest in us, should we stop China? We need to invest, We need technology transfer, but the United States is giving us nothing. China is giving us these and more concessions. Of course, China will enter where you did not enter. However, we do not want to fall into any camp. However, China is satisfying our needs Demand. We have established special economic zones. There are no restrictions here. Why doesn’t the United States come here and invest? Are we blocking the United States? No."
