‘Pak-China bonds getting stronger’

PESHAWAR: The Chief Secretary Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Nadeem Aslam Chaudhary said on Thursday afternoon that the decades-old mutual relationship between Pakistan and China was growing stronger and stronger with every passing day.
“The friendship between Pakistan and China is higher than the Himalayas, sweeter than honey and deeper than the sea. These are not just words, in fact they are the feelings and emotions of every Pakistani,” he maintained while addressing the 72nd anniversary of Pakisran-China Diplomatic Relations as the Chief Guest at the China Window Centre here.
The main reason for the strong bond between the two countries was that the mutual relationships are based on seven decades which brought the people of the two countries closer to each other, he observed.
The CS said that the brotherly neighbouring country China has supported Pakistan in every difficult time and Pakistan has never been left behind, adding that today, Pakistan is facing a difficult economic situation, but the economic plan that China has started as China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) will definitely start a new era of economic development in the country.
He said this plan would help stabilize the national economy besides making Pakistan an economic hub in the world.
Nadeem Aslam Chaudhry mentioned that the government was making every possible effort to speed up the work on CPEC, adding that foreign and local investors are taking a keen interest in Rashakai economic zone. –Agencies
