Islamabad: China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi has promised that his country will always assist Pakistan. Wang Yi has said that both China and Pakistan are 'all-weather' partners. China has also supported Pakistan on the Kashmir issue. Information about this has been provided by the South China Morning Post. There has been a conflict between Pakistan and India since August 5. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi also met Pakistan's military chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Monday.
It has been reported from the Chinese media that apart from bilateral relations with Army Chief Bajwa in Islamabad, international issues related to regional and mutual interests were also discussed. The Chinese Foreign Minister said that "no matter how the conditions of the region change, China will always stand with Pakistan and continue to assist it in protecting sovereignty, honour and territorial integrity". The Chinese Foreign Minister has arrived in Islamabad on a four-day visit. Earlier they were Nepal.
Wang has said that Pakistan is a strategic partner of China and its relationship with Pakistan is as strong as a rock. The Chinese Foreign Minister's statement came at a time when renewed tension between India and Pakistan has increased after the removal of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir. It was at the request of Pakistan that China discussed the closed-door Kashmir issue at the United Nations Security Assembly (UNSC) last month. However, Pakistan had to face it in this meeting.
