In the past 65 years, China and Pakistan have strengthened friendship, deepened mutual trust and expanded mutual cooperation. Our relationship has been elevated to a robust all-weather cooperative strategic partnership and has grown to encompass many areas of cooperation including economy, trade, science and technology, people-to-people contacts, culture and education.
We take pride that China has always proved to be an Iron brother, steadfast friend and a reliable partner of Pakistan. Our longstanding and ever-growing partnership with China is based on mutual respect, trust and shared values. It is symbolized in mutually beneficial projects like China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), legendary initiatives like the Karakoram Highway, historical ties visible in the artifacts of Gandhara Civilization and the slogan “Pak-Cheen Dosti wan sui” which is etched in the minds and hearts of Pakistani and Chinese people.
As we commemorate the 65 years of diplomatic relations, it is a time to reflect and cherish the past achievements, and a time to look ahead towards our future aspirations and dreams. Our friendship remains evergreen, fresh and forward-looking as we have sustained the test of times. Our predecessors have laid the foundation of a strong, stable and affectionate relationship. As torchbearers of two ancient civilizations and modern nations, it is our responsibility to pass the legendary narrative of our friendship to successive generations.
On this momentous occasion of Pakistan-China friendship, Pakistan Focus extends best wishes for the people and government of China.
