China lauds PM’s remarks on bilateral cooperation

BEIJING: Prime Minister Imran Khan’s positive remarks regarding China’s economic cooperation with Pakistan were highly commendable and Chinese side totally agreed with them, a Chinese foreign ministry’s spokesperson said on Thursday.

“China highly appreciates Prime Minister Imran Khan’s positive remarks on China-Pakistan relations. We totally agree with what he said,” spokesperson Geng Shuang said during his regular briefing while responding to a question asked by APP.

Speaking at a meeting hosted by the Council on Foreign Relations in New York this week, Prime Minister Imran Khan lauded China’s achievement in poverty alleviation and said it has offered Pakistan a great opportunity to grow its own economy.

The prime minister also clarified the misinterpretation of China’s investment in Pakistan through the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and said there had been no so-called “trade-offs” behind the economic cooperation.

The spokesperson said China and Pakistan lend each other trust, understanding and support, adding that “our friendship is unbreakable”. He said now, both the countries enjoyed good momentum in their relations, as evident from frequent high-level exchanges and deepening mutual beneficial cooperation.

The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), Geng Shuang said, has also produced fruitful outcomes and improved lives of the Pakistani people. The spokesperson said that the friendly cooperation between the two neighbours was in line with their shared interests.

“[The China-Pakistan cooperation] is also conducive to international peace and stability and fairness. We will try to build a community of closer shared future with Pakistan,” he added.
