Xi meets Pakistani prime minister

Bus service with Pakistan will not change our stand on Kashmir China

He said China has always been a close and reliable friend of Pakistan. Khan had initially vowed to curb borrowing, but has proceeded with projects such as one to build 5 million public housing units and has predicted that Pakistan would soon overcome its economic woes.

He is also scheduled to meet Premier Li Keqiang, president of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, Jin Liqun, and Minister for International Department of the Central Committee Communist Party of China Song Tao. "So we can learn more from China than any other country", he maintained.

India on Thursday reiterated its opposition to a proposed luxury bus service between Pakistan and China that would pass through parts of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan - territory that India claims - terming it "a violation of India's sovereignty", a day after it had summoned a Chinese diplomat to South Block to lodge a strong protest against the initiative.

China's stand he said is that the "cooperation between China and Pakistan has nothing to do with the territorial dispute and will not affect China's principled position on Kashmir", he said.

His visit here was regarded as significant as it is taking place amid critical remarks made by some ministers in Khan's Cabinet on the CPEC which had caused consternation among Chinese leaders considering the "all-weather" relations.

"We have very special relations with China". Pakistan's Ambassador to China Masood Khalid was also present.

Talking about the economic challenges including the current account deficit and declining foreign exchange reserves, the Prime Minister said, his government was following a two-pronged strategy including approaching friendly countries for financial assistance and putting the option of IMF at the end to avoid the tough conditions of the Fund. "It is easy to catch low-level criminals but it is much more challenging to expose white-collar crime which actually devastates a country", he added.

President Xi said relations between China and Pakistan had already been growing and now these had touched new heights.




The two sides underscored the importance of the Pak-China all-weather strategic cooperative partnership for a shared future.

The agreements were signed during delegation-level talks between the two countries at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.

India and Pakistan have been disputing the status of the Jammu and Kashmir region since the end of British rule in 1947.

This was reaffirmed during a meeting between Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and China's State Councillor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi in Beijing.

The meeting was held in a spirit of mutual understanding, longstanding friendship, and close cooperation.

"Khan has posited that Chinese and Saudi financial assistance will reduce the amount Pakistan needs to borrow from the International Monetary Fund, mitigating Pakistan's susceptibility to the United States demands that its CPEC debt be transparent".

The two foreign ministers discussed building the bilateral relationship further along the lines of the 10-point agenda covering multifaceted practical cooperation.
