Pakistan and China on Sunday pledged to complete the multi-billion dollars China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) as Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi called on Prime Minister Imran Khan and expressed desire to further enhance the bilateral strategic partnership.
Wang, who arrived here on a three-day visit on Friday, met Khan in Islamabad with a high-level delegation.
He underscored the significance of China-Pakistan relationship which served as a model of friendship in interstate relations.
Khan reiterated that Pakistan's friendship with China is a cornerstone of Pakistan's Foreign Policy.
"The Prime Minister reiterated that the Government is committed to the implementation of the CPEC," according to the statement.
During the meeting, regional situation and global issues were also discussed.
He also attended the swearing in ceremony of new president, Arif Alvi.
Wang's visit came amidst reports of unease in Beijing over how the new PTI government would approach over USD 50 billion Chinese investments in various projects under the CPEC connecting China's Muslim-majority Xinjiang province with Gwadar port in Pakistan.
