This is will be another opportunity to enhance bilateral ties. “We are confident that China-Pakistan relationship will continue to take the lead in state-to-state relationships, playing an exemplary role in the practice of building a community with a shared future for mankind.”
 
Now, China’s diplomatic agendas for 2018 have been unfolded. We are forging ahead with the pioneering and innovative spirit in the diplomatic front to kick off efforts to implement the decisions of the 19th National Party Congress.
