As per a recent report, Pakistan Army chief, General Qamar Javed Bajwa, expressed thanks to China for its “unflinching support” on the issue of Kashmir.
At a function held to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the founding of China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA), Bajwa mentioned that it is a moment of pride for the Pakistani Army and they are proud of the deep-rooted brotherly relationship with China.
Gen. Bajwa, who was the chief guest at the reception hosted by the Chinese Embassy held at Rawalpindi yesterday, described China and Pakistan as “important strategic players in the region”. He also mentioned that their bilateral ties have jointly benefited both countries. General Bajwa said,
Pakistan is indebted to China for its unflinching support to our perspective at all international forums, whether it be expansion of Nuclear Suppliers Group, Kashmir Issue, or Pakistan’s full membership of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation.
He concluded as per a press release issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations, the media wing of the Pakistan Army,
This unity of purpose has led to the consolidation and has strengthened our resolve as determined nations, to brave all challenges and storms together.
On the other hand, China has also been creating hurdles in India’s move to get Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed chief, Masood Azhar, sanctioned by the UN Security Council.
