Pak-China Friendship

244

Prime Minister Imran Khan met Chinese President Xi Jinping on the final day of his four-day visit to China. This was the first meeting of the two leaders since the prime minister of Pakistan Imran Khan’s visit to China in October 2019. Both leaders reviewed the entire gamut of Pakistan-China bilateral cooperation and exchanged views on regional and global issues of mutual interest “in a warm and cordial atmosphere”. The Pakistan-China partnership is supreme among inter-state relations. The history of this friendship is a unique account of rock-hard mutual support, mutual trust and mutual respect. Nurtured by successive generations of our leadership and peoples across seven decades, this iron-brotherhood has blossomed into a strong and vibrant All-Weather Strategic Cooperative Partnership. For Pakistan, relations with China are the cornerstone of our foreign policy enjoying support across the political spectrum. We can say with great confidence that our people fully understand the real value of this friendship and enthusiastically contribute to its splendor and glory. Pakistan is charting a new path for robust and sustainable development and making efforts to harness its potential as a geo-economics hub. The new National Security Policy of Pakistan centers on the current government’s vision of people-centric approach for ensuring their prosperity, fundamental rights and social justice. In pursuance of these objectives, we draw inspiration from China’s achievements; be it the miraculous lifting of 800 million people out of absolute poverty or victory in people’s war against the pandemic. Pakistan must learn the lesson from Chinese leadership to deal with poverty and economic challenges rationally. China is an emerging economy of the world; the neighbors must learn from its economic policies to uplift the economic sector of Pakistan. Pakistan, China would always find a trusted friend which would stand by it, not only amidst the gentle tides of peace and prosperity but also in the rising storms of challenges.
