On March 23rd, Minister Han Changfu attended as chief guest the 78th Pakistan Day Reception held by the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan in Beijing and made remarks together with Masood Khalid, Pakistani Ambassador to China.

 

Minister Han Changfu said that since China and Pakistan established diplomatic ties over six decades ago, the two countries have withstood the tests of dramatic international changes and developed the all-weather friendship. At present, in light of ever-changing international and regional situations, China and Pakistan need to work closely together more than ever before. The two countries need to promote the development of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and carry out comprehensive cooperation in key areas including agricultural development and poverty alleviation. They also need to extend people-to-people and cultural exchanges, increase coordination in regional and international affairs, and build a closer China-Pakistan community of shared destiny.

 

As Mr. Khalid pointed out, the “all-weather strategic partnership” established between China and Pakistan has become the most significant bilateral relations in Asia and a model of international relations. As an example of mutually-beneficial and win-win cooperation, the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor has made stable and outstanding progress in areas such as energy, transportation network and the construction of the Gwadar Port, and further enhanced traditional friendship between the two countries. Pakistan will promote exchanges and cooperation with China in all sectors and promote bilateral relations to a new level.

 

Before the Reception, Minister Han Changfu and Mr. Khalid exchanged views on bilateral relations between China and Pakistan, especially on the agricultural cooperation. The two sides agreed to jointly promote the establishment of a China-Pakistan agricultural cooperation mechanism and diversify cooperation to contribute to the development of China-Pakistan relations.
