The WAPDA administration decided to enlist the help of the Chinese ambassador to persuade Gezhouba Group Company to resume work on the hydropower project. Construction on the project, which is located in the Upper Kohistan district, was halted following an incident in the Dasu area, according to information given.
Two army platoons have been sent in Upper and Lower Kohistan, as well as the Kolai-Palas regions, to protect the safety of Chinese labourers, according to the federal government. Security guards would also be stationed along the Karakoram Highway.
