Xi Jinping pointed out in his congratulatory letter that in June of last year, China formally established diplomatic relations with Panama and opened a new era of relations between the two countries. Last November, when you successfully made a state visit to China, we discussed and planned the comprehensive development of China Pakistan Relations.
With the careful nurturing of both sides, the seeds of the development of Sino Pakistani relations are bearing fruit. Facts have proved that the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Pakistan is a correct political decision made by both sides. I attach great importance to the development of China Pakistan Relations and wish to work with you to strengthen mutual benefit and cooperation in all fields in the light of the principle of mutual respect, win-win cooperation and common development, so that China Pakistan Relations will flourish and benefit the two countries and the people of the two countries.
