Islamabad: Pakistan government has increased security in the southwestern Balochistan province in a bid to protect the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) projects in the region.

Pakistan pays a lot of attention to CPEC, and after recent terrorist attacks, security for the CPEC has been beefed up directly and indirectly by providing more security to CPEC projects and enhancing security in the whole province to ensure smooth work at CPEC projects, Director General of the military's media wing Inter-Services Public Relations, Major General Babar Iftikhar said in an interactive session with correspondents in Rawalpindi city as quoted by Xinhua news agency.
