“Ali Afsar and companions not authorized to run the port”, says Yang Zimin

Translated by Noor Muhammad

Chairman of the Pak China Sost Port Company (pvt) Ltd., Yang Zimin, has expressed concerns over the controversies inside the sost port. He said that the scenario had nega tive impact on the performance of the port. He said this in response to an email sent to him by Ali Afsar, chairman of the Sost Port Trust. Yang Zimin, in his letter, said that Ali Afsar and his companions were not the ‘legal’ parts of the Sost port and, thus, they can neither control the port nor become its Chairman. He further said that the joint venture had been set up by two companies and it was being run under the Pakistani law, under Article of Associaiton of Joint Ventures…….

Yang Zimin further wrote that since the Chinese had larger shares in the port so they had the authority to run it as well. And even if the entire cabinet of the port trust changes they don’t get the right to operate affairs of the port. He also said that only legal members of the dry port can become part of the port trust but they don’t have any right to control affairs of the dry port.

….. He further wrote that in the wider interest of Sino – Pak relations and the port, they (the Chinese shareholders) don’t interfer in affairs of the port trust. He said that the people of Hunza had the ability to resolve issues and, so, the members of the Sost port Trust shall resolve their internal issues, on their own. We are not working with an individual or a group, but with the Silk Route Dry Port Trust. And we are not concerned with any changes that might have taken place in the trust and we will keep working with its legal members. We also expect same behavior from the Chief Secretary and Deputy Commissionair.

  6. if the Yangzimen has given this statement, then think the Mir approch, for this all weople from upper hunza should be united and stage protest, y they are interfering our business, they should know that a huge investment hsa done by upper gojal folks, he should also think about, it seems he is also playing with the emotions of people, bet them all, they should learned some lesson .

  7. who is this young or old zameen? could you please let us know first we can then talk much clearly. I have never bothered myself to involve in this issue but now I think it is getting some thing very much disgusting? is he/she a simple share holder just like any share holder from Northern Pakistan or is this fellow just trying to become another AYASHO from some where???

  8. This Yangzimen has no right to state that who are the legal authorities from Pakistan. He is responsible for China partners and we have to regard that. As far as Pakistan is concern we have our own people to justify and of course we have our own judiciary to settle the issue
