Celebrations of 70th anniversary of Pak-China diplomatic ties

To mark the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries, a virtual ceremony will be simultaneously held in Islamabad and Beijing today.

Starting from Tuesday, Pakistan and China will celebrate their 70th anniversary of diplomatic ties with a series of events.

According to a press release issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), to mark the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries on 21 May 1951, a virtual ceremony will be simultaneously held in Islamabad and Beijing today.

“Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and China’s State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi will lead the ceremony on their respective sides.”

The press release mentioned.

It further stated that both countries would be organizing a series of events throughout the year to commemorate this historic milestone in a befitting manner.

Recently, China welcomed the comments of Prime Minister Imran Khan on the elimination of extreme poverty, saying that it was ready to help developing countries in the poverty alleviation efforts.

“We noticed Prime Minister Imran Khan’s positive comments on China’s elimination of extreme poverty.”

Chinese Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson Wang Wenbin said during his regular briefing.

In a tweet, Prime Minister Imran Khan had congratulated Chinese President Xi Jinping and the government for taking 750 million people out of poverty in 35 years.

Later, senior Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying also expressed her gratitude to PM Imran’s remarks on China’s achievements in its poverty alleviation campaign and wrote “Thank you, Mr Prime Minister”.

He said the elimination of extreme poverty was a “milestone in China’s improvement of people’s well-being and in its human rights course,” adding, since the 18th CPC session, every year, over 10 million people in China were lifted out of poverty equaling a size of the medium-sized country. “So, about every three seconds, one person was lifted out of poverty.”

Wang Wenbin said after the reforms and opening up in China, 770 million rural population had been lifted out of poverty.

“China’s poverty alleviation results belonged to China and the world.”

He said.
