Islamabad: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday inaugurated five 'Pakistan-China Friendship Tunnels' built at the cost of about USD 275 million to restore a strategic road link to China via Gilgit-Baltistan.

The tunnels are part of a 24 kilometre realignment project which has been completed in collaboration with China in over three years.

The 'Pakistan-China Friendship Tunnels' are the network of seven-kilometre-long five tunnels which restored Karakorum Highway (KKH) near Attabad lake in Hunza valley of Gilgit- Baltistan region in the country's north.

The restoration of KKH is said to be linked with the historic USD 46 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor project.
