H.E. Mamnoon Hussain
President of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan
Respected Mr. President,
On behalf of the Chinese Government and people and in my own name, I would like to extend my warm congratulations and best wishes to Your Excellency, and through you to the Pakistani Government and people on the occasion of the 78th Pakistan Day.
In recent years, under the leadership of Your Excellency and the Pakistani Government, the people of Pakistan have properly responded to different kinds of challenges, maintained national security and stability, accelerated social economic development and continuously improved people’s livelihood. I rejoiced at the progress made by Pakistan in the cause of its national construction.
Over the past year, China-Pakistan relations maintained a rapid momentum of development, with China Pakistan Economic Corridor moving into the stage of full implementation. By taking opportunity of working together for the “Belt and Road” Initiative, both sides are making endeavors of jointly building China-Pakistan Community of Shared Destiny. It conforms to the common interests of both countries and the two peoples, and is conducive to the peace and development of the region as well as the whole world. I attach great importance to the development of China-Pakistan relations. I am ready to work with you to push forward China-Pakistan all-weather strategic cooperative partnership to a new level.
May I wish Pakistan enjoy prosperity and its people well-being.
the People’s Republic of China
