ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari will pay a two-day visit to China on May 21-22, 2022 at the special invitation of State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi.


This would be the Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari’s first bilateral visit abroad since assuming office last month.

The Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Hina Rabbani Khar and senior officials will be part of the foreign minister’s delegation.

During the visit, the foreign minister will hold extensive consultations with the State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi.

The two leaders will review the entire gamut of bilateral relations, with a particular focus on stronger trade and economic cooperation between Pakistan and China.

Fast-tracked progress on the transformational China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), flagship project of President Xi Jinping’s visionary Belt and Road Initiative, will also feature in the discussions.

The two sides will also have wide-ranging exchange of views on major regional and international issues.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari’s visit will also coincide with the 71st anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Pakistan and China.

The State Councilor Wang Yi had written a letter of congratulations to the Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on his assumption of the office of the foreign minister.

The two foreign ministers had previously held a virtual meeting on May 11, 2022.

The Foreign Minister’s visit is part of the high-level exchanges between the two sides, which recently also included message of felicitations to the Prime Minister from Premier Li Keqiang, and telephone conversation between the two Premiers on May 16, 2022.

The foreign minister’s visit will contribute towards further fortifying the time- tested All-Weather Strategic Cooperative Partnership between Pakistan and China, enhance and deepen CPEC-related engagement, and help in identifying new avenues for bilateral cooperation to the benefit of the two countries and peoples.
