H.E. Muhammad Nawaz Sharif
Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan
On behalf of the Chinese Government, I would like to extend my warm congratulations and best wishes to the Pakistani Government and Your Excellency on the occasion of the 78th Pakistan Day.
In recent years, under the leadership of Your Excellency, the Pakistani people have properly responded to different kinds of challenges and made new achievements in maintaining national security, stability and economic development. China-Pakistan relations maintain a rapid momentum of development. In particular, the construction of China Pakistan Economic Corridor moves forward steadily, and has played a demonstrative role for the mutually beneficial cooperation among China and other countries along the "Belt and Road".
The Chinese government has always viewed and developed China-Pakistan relations from a strategic and long-term perspective. China is willing to work with the Pakistani government to push forward China-Pakistan all-weather strategic cooperative partnership for new and continuous progress.
May I wish Pakistan enjoy prosperity and its people well-being.
Premier of the State Council
the People's Republic of China
