Shehbaz and Xi also talked about how the two nations’ “all-weather strategic cooperation partnership” has to be further promoted.
Today is expected to be a busy day in Beijing for PM Shehbaz. In addition to meeting Premier Li Keqiang, he will probably also meet with Pakistani businessmen and Chinese investors.
On Tuesday, Pakistan’s Prime Minister arrived in Beijing on a two-day official visit to meet Chinese leaders, review the “all-weather strategic cooperative partnership,” and discuss regional and global developments.
