With eye on aid, Pakistan PM meets Chinese counterpart

Rising Kashmir

Lauding Pakistan's anti-nuclear proliferation record, Beijing added it supports Islamabad's engagement with the NSG - while also indirectly criticising those countries supporting India in its NSG membership quest.

The creation of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) has no relevance to the Indian-Pakistani territorial dispute and will not influence China's stance on Kashmir, the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman, Lu Kang, said on Thursday.

China and Pakistan signed 15 agreements and memorandums on a range of issues during Mr Khan's visit.

Cheng Xiaohe, deputy director of the centre for worldwide strategic studies at Renmin University, said China would offer economic assistance, but it was the Pakistan government's responsibility to tackle its economic problems.

The statement added that building a closer China-Pakistan community in the new era was the pillar of the continued relationship between the "iron brothers".

Both China and Pakistan agreed to further enhance cooperation against "three evils' of extremism, terrorism and separatism", the statement said.

Some ministers in Khan's new government have expressed concerns over the Chinese investments in Pakistan, with one slashing the budget of a rail project by $2 billion.

Sharing his vision of Naya Pakistan, the Prime Minister congratulated the Chinese premier on successful anti corruption drive, poverty alleviation and modernization of China based on innovation and IT. Highlighting the huge market potential and geostrategic advantage of Pakistan, the prime minister encouraged the business leaders to explore investment opportunities in the diverse socioeconomic sectors.

Prime Minister Imran Khan met his Chinese counterpart Li Keqiang on Saturday during his first official trip to Chin.

Khan lauded President Xi and other Chinese leadership for bringing down poverty in China and bringing out 700 million people from poverty in 30 years.

Arising the participants of his struggle, he said when he launched his party against corruption in 1996 after retiring from cricket.it was given no importance.

The prime minister extended an invitation to President Xi Jinping to visit Pakistan, which was accepted. "These relations have not only benefited the two all-weather strategic partners but the region and world", he said.

China will provide "necessary support" to Pakistan to tide over the present financial crisis but declined to reveal the amount, Vice Foreign Minister Kong Xuanyou told media after the talks.

And despite Pakistan's looming balance of payments crisis, Kong said there were no plans to scale back the economic corridor, known as CPEC, although he did say it would be altered somewhat to "tilt in favor of areas relating to people's lives".

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.

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

On the occasion, the two sides expressed satisfaction over the multi faceted bilateral relations.
