President Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentarians (PPPP) Asif Ali Zardari has felicitated both nations, Pakistan and China, on completing 70 years of friendship, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Friday.

He said that the foundation of this friendship was laid by Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto as the foreign minister of Pakistan.

Asif Zardari said, “The longevity of this bond is a testament of the well-wishing nature and mutual respect between both countries. This friendship is regarded as deeper than the oceans and taller than the Himalayas, which has stood the test of time for several decades.”

Asif Zardari said, “PPP is proud to have initiated the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) which is a practical manifestation of the friendship between both countries.”

The relations between the two countries and their people are so strong that China is commonly perceived as Pakistan’s closest ally, he added.

President Zardari said that during his tenure as the president, he visited China several times because his policy was to strengthen the relations. It is hoped that the bond between the two countries will continue to grow.
