Chinese envoy Yao Jing meets chairman PTI Imran Khan Islamabad Pakistan

ISLAMABAD: Chinese Ambassador in Pakistan Yao Jing Monday called on Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan to congratulate the latter on election victory.

The Chinese envoy, while presenting felicitations on behalf of his government to the prime minister-in waiting, reiterated Beijing’s desire to strengthen cooperation with Islamabad in all sectors.

China last week said it was ready to work with the new government in Pakistan after Imran Khan’s PTI scored a comfortable victory in the general election.

In a post-election address to the nation, Imran pledged to tackle corruption and touched on promises to strengthen and improve Pakistan’s relationship with neighbouring countries, including China.

“We will strengthen and improve our relations with China. We want to work towards success of CPEC. We also want to send teams to learn poverty alleviation from China,” the star cricketer-turned-politician said.

Beijing welcomed the development and congratulated Islamabad on holding “successful election”. A foreign ministry spokesman said result of the election would not have an impact on the ties between the two countries.

“The China-Pakistan friendship receives heartfelt support and acclamation of the two peoples. Whatever the result of the election is, it won t affect the development of China-Pakistan relations,” he added.
