Pakistan-China relations growing day by day: PM Imran Khan

KARACHI: Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan said that the cordial relations between the country and China are growing deeper and stronger day by day. The PM appreciated China for making a huge success in eradicating absolute poverty.

While addressing the inauguration ceremony of the Karachi Nuclear Power Plant Unit-2 (K-2) on Friday, Khan said that May 21 marked the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between the two countries, and apart from the ever-strengthening bilateral ties, the people-to-people contacts have also become deep-rooted with the passage of time.

 Khan said that the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor will open new prospects of development in the fields of agriculture and industrial development with the support of China after bringing great improvement in energy supply and infrastructure in Pakistan. He said: "I will say that eradicating poverty is just like winning a big battle, and it did not happen in one day. I believe that Pakistan can learn how to lift its people from poverty."

The premier said that his country needs clean energy projects and the K-2 will carter the need, adding that the power plant will not only enable the transfer of technology from China but also equip local people with skills to use the state-of-the-art technology. The K-2 is the first foreign nuclear power unit using Hualong One, a Chinese domestically designed third-generation reactor that has a design life of 60 years.
