Imran meets Xi, discusses Kashmir

Imran meets Xi, discusses Kashmir

Beijing, Oct 9 (Xinhua) Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan here on Wednesday met Chinese President Xi Jinping and briefed him on the Kashmir situation.

Hoping to avoid deterioration of the situation, Mr Khan, as quoted by Xinhua said that Pakistan values and appreciates China's objective and unbiased position.

Mr Xi told Khan that China was paying close attention to the Kashmir situation and the facts were clear.

"China supports Pakistan to safeguard its own legitimate rights and hopes that the relevant parties can solve their disputes through peaceful dialogue," Mr Xi said.

India, on August 5, removed special status granted to the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan has since then tried to raise the issue in the international arena, including United Nations.Noting the two countries as all-weather strategic cooperative partners, Mr Xi said no matter how the international and regional situation changes, the friendship between China and Pakistan has always been unbreakable and rock-solid, and always maintained strong vitality with continuous expansion.

China has always viewed relations with Pakistan as a diplomatic priority and will continue to firmly support Pakistan on issues concerning its core interests and of major concern to it, he further said.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China.

On the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), Xi said the two sides should adopt a high standard, build and effectively run the existing energy projects, transport infrastructure, industrial parks and projects concerning people's livelihoods, and make the CPEC a model for jointly building the Belt and Road Initiative.

China highly appreciates and firmly supports Pakistan's efforts in fighting terrorism, Mr Xi said, calling on the two sides to enhance communication and cooperation within the United Nations, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and other multilateral mechanisms so as to jointly safeguard regional peace and stability.
