Distinguished Guests,

Ladies and Gentlemen

Asalam Walaikon!

It gives me great pleasure today to be here at Pakistan Academy of Letters Sindh Provincial Office witnessing together with you the launching of the book "60 years Friendship of Pak-China" written by Mr. Nadeem Israr Usmani.

First of all, I want to extend my heartiest congratulations to Mr. Nadeem Israr Usmani on the publication of this book which provides a comprehensive overview of the 60 year friendship between China and Pakistan since both sides established diplomatic relationship in 1951. This book is of great value and significance since it is the first of its kind written in Urdo. I am sure this book will greatly help more Pakistani friends to better understand the friendship between China and Pakistan. We very much appreciate the great work done by the author and organizer. It truly reflects your contribution and dedication to the friendly Sino-Pak relationship.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Today's launching ceremony arouses our fresh memory of the happy occasion of year 2011 which marked the 60th anniversary of our diplomatic ties. In that year, both sides had a series of commemorative activities, which had brought new vigor to our long lasting friendship. Over the past six decades, China and Pakistan have developed an exclusively unique relationship which features all weather friendship and all round strategic partnership of cooperation. China-Pakistan relations have withstood the test of time and are as firm as rock. This is only because we always respect each other, highly trust each other, and wholeheartedly support and help each other in every field. China-Pakistan friendship has been deeply rooted in the hearts of the two peoples. Such strong friendship and relations are attributed to the constant and enormous efforts from the two sides, both governmental and non-governmental. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the Pakistani friends who have long been committed to the friendship between our two countries. I am in full confidence that with the concerted efforts, the Sino-Pak relation will have a brighter future!

Ladies and Gentlemen,

China has just elected a new leadership and formed a new government. The Chinese People is now taking a fresh firm step forward on the way to realizing China Dream, namely, the great renewal of the Chinese nation. In this process, we will continue to undertake reform and opening up policy, actively play our role in international affairs and take due responsibilities. We will continue to promote friendship and partnership with our neighbors, consolidate friendly relations and deepen mutually beneficial cooperation with them, and ensure that China's development will bring more benefits to our neighbors. Pakistan is our good neighbor, close friend, trusted partner and dear brother. The friendship commitments China has made to Pakistan will never change, the special brotherly affection Chinese people have towards Pakistani people will never change, the trend of healthy and rapid development of the China Pakistan relationship will never change!

  Ladies and Gentlemen,

I'm so pleased to see that people to people exchanges between China and Pakistan have been more frequent and robust through our joint efforts. The Consulate General of China in Karachi will continue to do its best in the aspect.

Today I'm also very happy to announce that a Pak-China Literature corner is established in this office library by Chinese Consulate General in collaboration with Pakistan Academy of Letters Sindh Provincial Office. I hope the corner will be another helpful enhancer for friendship and mutual understanding.

Finally, may everybody present here enjoy good health and happiness!

China Pakistan Dosti Zindabad!

Thank you.
