Wang Yi Held Talks with Pakistani Foreign Minister Qureshi
2019/08/09

On the evening of August 9 in Beijing, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi had talks with Pakistani Foreign Minister Qureshi who paid an urgent visit to China.

Qureshi briefed the Chinese side on Pakistan's observations, position and measures in response to the latest development of the situation in Kashmir. Qureshi said that China is Pakistan's friend that has long been trusted, and that friendship between Pakistan and China is rock solid. He believes China will stand up for justice on the Kashmir issue. Pakistan will continue to resolutely support China's just position on issues concerning China's core interests. The Pakistani side will continue to advance Pakistan-China all-weather strategic cooperative partnership.

Wang Yi noted that China is seriously concerned about the latest escalation of tensions in Kashmir. The Kashmir issue is a dispute left from the colonial history. It should be properly and peacefully resolved based on the UN Charter, relevant UN Security Council resolutions and bilateral agreement. China believes that unilateral actions that will complicate the situation should not be taken.

Wang Yi stressed that as all-weather strategic cooperative partners, China and Pakistan have understood and supported each other on issues concerning our respective core interests. This is a good tradition that should be cherished by the two sides. China will continue to support Pakistan in safeguarding its legitimate rights and interests and uphold justice for Pakistan on the international arena.

Wang Yi also noted that Pakistan and India are both China's friendly neighbors and major developing countries that are in a crucial stage of development. We call on the two sides to proceed from their national development and peace in South Asia, properly resolve historical grievances, get rid of the zero-sum mindset, avoid unilateral action and seek a new path to peaceful coexistence.
