The Government of Pakistan has signed a Debt Service Suspension Agreement with the Republic of Korea amounting to deferment of payment of loans worth US$ 19.911 million under the G-20 Debt Service Suspension Initiative (DSSI) framework.

The total amount of debt, that is to be suspended under the DSSI framework, covering the period of repayment from May 2020 to December 2021, stands at US$ 3,686 million.

Pakistan has already concluded and signed 104 agreements with 21 bilateral creditors for the deferment of its debt repayments under the G-20 DSSI, amounting to USD 3,633 million.

The signing of above-mentioned agreement brings this total to US$ 3,653 million.
