BEIJING: Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif met Chinese President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation’s (SCO) Council of Foreign Ministers meeting in Beijing on Monday.

Mr Asif told Xi Jinping that Pakistan and China were strategic partners and delivered the Pakistani people’s goodwill to the Chinese President.

He also claimed that Pakistan was China’s all-weather friend and wished to see China play a greater role in global and regional affairs. In turn, China’s leader commended Pakistan’s role as a member of the SCO.

Pakistan’s foreign minister also claimed that the upcoming informal meeting between Xi and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi can help ensure regional peace and prosperity.

However, the minister did raise the issue of atrocities occurring in Indian-held Kashmir when he met Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi.

Mr Asif also met Tajikistan’s Foreign Minister Sirodjidin Aslov at the SCO secretariat in Beijing, and both ministers agreed to bolster strategic and bilateral cooperation.
