Islamabad, China relations a ‘model of state-to-state ties’, says Pakistan foreign minister


Ahead of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s first visit to China, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Wednesday said the relations between the two nations is a “model of state-to-state ties” and the CPEC projects have given an important socio-economic development dimension to their friendship.

Khan, accompanied by Qureshi, will lead a delegation from November 2-5 to China for talks with President Xi Jinping amid anxieties in Beijing over his government’s approach to deal with the USD 60 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) following reports about Islamabad downsizing certain projects.

Khan’s trip to Beijing comes ahead of a visit to Islamabad by International Monetary Fund officials on November 7 for formal discussions on a bailout package for the cash-strapped country.  Read More
