President Mamnoon Hussain’s recent visit to China during the CICA Summit can be aptly described as a milestone in the cordial Pak-China ties since it has provided yet another opportunity to both the countries not only to expand their ties but also diversify them.
Although the occasion was used with diplomatic sagacity to hold sideline meetings with the Sri Lankan President and UN Secretary General, as well, Pakistan’s ‘Look China’ policy reverberated quite vigorously during President Hussain’s visit. The fact is that when it comes to China, Pakistani head of state or Pakistani head of government enjoys special status over there because of which even meetings on the sidelines assume greater significance.
In the instant case too, President Mamnoon Hussain’s activities on the sidelines of the summit were multifaceted and a clear endorsement of the fact that both the countries enjoy intertwined, mutually dependable relations.
