原文标题：‘All-weather friends’: PM Ashraf meets Chinese counterpart
BEIJING: China has assured its complete support to Pakistan on regional and international issues during a meeting between prime ministers of both the countries in Tiangin on Tuesday.
Raja Pervaiz Ashraf and Wen Jiabo discussed a gamut of issues including cooperation in defence, infrastructure development, energy, agriculture and banking. They also reaffirmed the resolve to further strengthen ties in trade and defence.
The two leaders noted that both the countries share similar views on important regional and global issues and would continue to extend support to each other at all levels.
The two sides were of the view that they are opposed to terrorism and will continue to cooperate with each other to eliminate this threat.
They also agreed on exploiting full potential of the two business communities to boost their economy and trade. They renewed their focus on achieving target of $15 billion bilateral trade.
Ashraf said that Pakistan attaches great importance to enhancing economic and trade links with China. He sought investment by Chinese companies in Pakistan’s various areas and stressed the need for making efforts to realise the full potential of bilateral trade.
He further termed the Chinese assistance in carrying out mega projects in Pakistan as significant. He said it was high time to address the global economic crisis and find ways to counter its impact on growing economies.
The Chinese premier said that his country considers Pakistan its friend and underscored the importance of time-tested strategic partnership between the two countries.
He reiterated the stance of his government of supporting the sovereignty and integrity of Pakistan.
Wen Jiabao also expressed appreciation for Pakistan’s role against terrorism and extremism and called for greater international recognition of its efforts and sacrifices in this regard.
Pak-China Friendship – Zindabad
Every news I see on ET is replete with Indians’ comments. And number of likes to those biased comments show how many of them visit this news site. Don’t they have anything happening in their country? Even subtle issues of interior nature attract them. Thank God, there is something which can keep them quiet.
ET designs and uploads lead headlines in such a way that they want people to fight over news in comments section, they just want to draw comments from the foreign visitor’s to defame Pakistan, poor sort of journalism
people like you bring india to every topic.. now they will post worthless replies to your post. we should stop being obssesed with india.
I just chanced upon this web page while browsing international news – seems you’re the one who’s obsessed with us Indians so that even where there were no comments from or about Indians, you brought them up 🙂 btw – lots of Pakistanis comment on Indian e-newspapers too – I never saw an Indian complaining – the world wide web is just that – world wide web – you want to restrict that too?
在浏览国际新闻时，我偶然发现这个网页。似乎迷恋我们印度人的那个人是你，以致于没有来自印度人的评论或者有关印度人的评论时，你却把印度人提了出来 🙂 顺便说下，也有许多巴基斯坦人在印度网站发表评论，我从来没有看到一个印度人就此抱怨。万维网就是这样，你想加以限制？
Chinese are time tested friends
good progress but also pak should join hands with india as well
where were this friend during 1965 ,1971, kargil and for kashmir, siachin and sir creek. this friend simply vanished from financing on iran pakistan pipeline.they only mean business.recently chinese defense minister visited india and agreed for joint military excercise.
Where was the “All weather” friend when we had a big “weather” related massive flood or earth quake. It was the enemy #1 satan amreeka that was most helpful.
Why are we so naive, eveybody will befriend us only when have more to gain from the “friendship”. China is eyeing over natural resources in balochistan that they will get at a throw away price by bribing our generals and politicians! Wake up and see what china is doing in africa.
Indians wont be able to digest Putin visit to Pakistan and kayani’s visit to russia for strategic partnership, u and me both are here lets see the Indian’s obsession
Indians will heartily digest Putin’s visit to Pakistan. As usual, you are shortsighted as to who was and is with India during the Cold War. I hope the Russian will do the dirty laundry for us.
The following two links will be an eye opener for you all:
The first is from TOI and the second is from the mouthpiece of China.
Indians are simply amused at our absurdity and how we beg in front of others like a cry baby. No matter what we say, we all know that our relationship with beijing, washington, saudi etc. are that of master and follower. This is proved numerous times in 60 years and will continue in future. US, China, Russia or anyone else, simply use us as tissue paper for their own profits, control our assets and will back out as US did in 80s, China did in 65, 71… We are nothing but a corrupt, failed, beggar nation of 180 million, ready to serve whoever gives us dollars. Thats the truth, and the chinese knows better than anyone else.
True Muslim Paki
I agree with Ejaz & Paki politics 100%. ET has become like honey for the flies for these Indians. They come & post their unwanted views in literally everything. Somehow, the moderator allows their posts but not ours.
