China-Pakistan relations of equality stand weatherproof

2013-05-22 15:13 Xinhua     Web Editor: Gu Liping comment

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang left India for Pakistan Wednesday, the second stop of his first overseas trip as China's new head of government.

It is worth noting that Li is the first foreign leader to visit Pakistan in the wake of the country's general elections.

The two "firsts" testified to the "all-weather strategic partnership" between China and Pakistan, which was cherished and hailed by generations of leaders and peoples of both sides.

Despite the difference in ideology, religion, culture and social system, the bilateral ties have withstood various tests and vicissitudes of international situations since China and Pakistan established diplomatic relations in 1951, thanks to the high level of mutual trust, equality and cooperation.

China and Pakistan have shaped a paradigm of neighbor-to-neighbor relations. Their time-tested friendship, described by some as "higher than the mountains and deeper than the oceans," is not just a bunch of empty words.

Politically, the two have always been a staunch supporter for each other on issues concerning their core interests. Pakistan firmly supports China's position on Taiwan, Tibet, Xinjiang and human rights. China fully respects the Pakistani people's choice of development path.
