PM Khan and Mr Yi discussed the current trajectory of China-Pakistan bilateral ties, and the evolving regional and international scenario. The two sides also discussed the situation in Ukraine and reiterated the need for a solution through sustained dialogue and diplomacy.
Mr Khan briefed the Chinese leader on India’s egregious human rights violations in India-held Kash­m­­ir and its “irresponsible” behaviour that was an impe­d­­­iment to regional peace and security.
He also apprised Mr Yi of the so-called accidental firing of a missile from India into Pakistan.
He also emphasised that Pakistan and China must continue deeper engagement to promote peace and stability in Afghanistan, and avert a humanitarian crisis there.
In his meeting with Palestinian Foreign Minister Dr Riyad al-Maliki, the prime minister maintained that the Palestinian tragedy was at the heart of the turmoil in the Middle East. He reiterated Islam­abad’s unequivocal support for the rights of the Palestinian people and their just struggle.
Later, in a meeting with Iraqi Foreign Minister Fuad Hussein, Mr Khan reiterated Pakistan’s support for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Iraq.
