Prime Minister Imran Khan reaches China on four-day visit

BEIJING, China: Prime Minister Imran Khan reached China on Thursday for a four-day visit from February 3 to 6, 2022 to attend the Opening Ceremony of the Winter Olympic Games.


The prime minister was received at the Beijing Capital International Airport by the Assistant Foreign Minister of China Wu Jianghao.

His visit is being taken at the special invitation of the Chinese leadership.

As a global event, the Olympic Games foster mutual understanding, inclusivity and friendship among the peoples of the world.

Beijing will soon become the first City to host both Summer and Winter Editions of the Olympic Games.

It is highly admirable that the Chinese government has made meticulous arrangements for holding the Winter Olympic Games despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the visit, Prime Minister Imran Khan will hold bilateral meetings with the Chinese President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang.

The leaders will review the entire gamut of bilateral relations, with a particular focus on stronger trade and economic cooperation including China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

They will also have a wide-ranging exchange of views on major regional and international issues.

The prime minister’s visit would mark the culmination of celebrations commemorating the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Pakistan and China, with more than 140 events organized to showcase the resilience of the All-Weather Strategic Cooperative Partnership amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and the unfolding international situation.

It would thus renew the bilateral commitment to taking the iron-clad partnership between Pakistan and China to new heights and add impetus to cooperation across multiple domains.

A number of Memorandum of Understandings (MoUs) and agreements would be concluded during the visit.

While in Beijing, the prime minister would also meet prominent business leaders of China and representatives of leading Chinese think-tanks, academia and the media.
