“On the occasion of the 65th anniversary of the establishment of the diplomatic relations between the People’s Republic of China and the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, I would like to, on behalf of the Chinese Government, extend warm congratulations and good wishes to the Pakistani Government and Your Excellency.

Pakistan is good neighbor, close friend, trusted partner and dear brother of China. Over the past 65 years since the establishment of the diplomatic relations, both China and Pakistan have always adhered to the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence, enjoyed political mutual trust, carried out mutually-beneficial economic cooperation as well as rendered each other with mutual understanding and support on issues related to core interests to each other. China has always treated and developed the China-Pakistan relations from a strategic height and long-term perspective. China stands ready to work with Pakistan to expedite the construction of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and constantly promote the development of the China-Pakistan all-weather strategic cooperative partnership.

May I wish Pakistan enjoy prosperity and its people well-being!

May I wish China-Pakistan friendship be carried forward from generation to generation and become even stronger as time goes by.”
