China builds more harmonious relationship with Pakistan and others: Spokesperson

BEIJING, February 12 (INP): China will continue to build more harmonious relationship with the countries of the World including Pakistan.

Acknowledging greeting messages received from Pakistan and other countries on their New Lunar Year, a spokesperson of the Chinese Foreign Ministry Hua Chunying said in the year ahead, China will continue to work with all countries to build a better, more harmonious and prosperous world.

If countries can share mutual respect, seek common ground while reserving differences and co-exist in harmony, the world will enjoy peace, development and prosperity.

It is the common aspiration of all people that serves the interests of all countries.”

Hua Chunying pointed out that China all families get together on Spring Festival as it is the most important, ceremonious and joyous of all traditional festivals for the Chinese.

It marks a good start for this year’s celebration of the 70th anniversary of China-Russia diplomatic ties. We believe that with joint efforts from both sides, our comprehensive strategic partnership of coordination will be brought to a new height, she added.
