MESSAGE FROM FOREIGN SECRETARY OF PAKISTAN SALMAN BASHIR ON THE OCCASION OF THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE
On the auspicious occasion of the commencement of the “Pakistan-China Friendship Year”, it gives me immense pleasure to convey to our Chinese friends warm greetings from all men and women of the Foreign Service of Pakistan.
Having served as Ambassador of Pakistan to the People’s Republic of China, I and my family will never forget the kindness, love and affection that we received from our Chinese friends. The beautiful memories of those days are deeply etched in our hearts and minds.
Beyond China’s splendid economic transformation, we were privileged to witness a veritable renaissance of the great Chinese civilization, characterized as it is by ancient Chinese wisdom, instinctive passion and poise, that blends beautifully into harmony in all spheres. It is this essence of harmony that the great Chinese Nation offers to the troubled world today.
Pakistan-China friendship is legendary – a fascinating romance between our two peoples, deeply rooted in our national ethos, since times immemorial.
The leadership, the Government, the Armed Forces and, above all, the people of Pakistan and China are united in their resolve to safeguard their national interests, uphold national dignity and frustrate and defeat any evil designs against their motherland.
Our two peoples will continue to march, hand-in-hand, on the high road to peace and prosperity.
