Xi Jinping visit to Pakistan: Indian media expresses concerns.


Monitoring Desk: Indian media is projecting statement of Chinese President Xi Jinping  who said that he is visiting the home of his brother while commenting upon his first trip to Pakistan starting from Monday.

“My visit is like I am visiting my own brother”, said Xi Jinping while commenting upon his visit to Islamabad starting from Monday that will bring new opportunities to Pakistan including the USD 46 billion bilateral economic corridor. His statement came out in an article published in an english daily.

“I look forward to working with Pakistani leaders during the visit to explore the general framework for bilateral cooperation, make substantial progress in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and practical cooperation in other fields and push for the furtherance of bilateral ties at a higher level,” he said in the signed article carried by the state-run Xinhua news agency.

Hindustan Times said that during his visit, Xi will meet with his Pakistani counterpart Mamnoon Hussain, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and other Pakistani leaders for in-depth exchange of views on bilateral relations and discuss issues of common interest.

He is expected to unveil a host of projects under the corridor linking China’s Xinjiang province with Gwadar port through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).

China and Pakistan need to align development strategies more closely to realise the dreams of the two peoples, he said.

“We need to enhance strategic coordination, deepen practical cooperation and work together for common development. We will build the China-Pakistan community of common destiny and set a fine example for such efforts by China and its neighbouring countries,” Xi said.

India media looks uneasy about these cordial words used by Xi Jinping for Pakistan and many Indian television channels are working to broadcast Xi Jinping visit to Pakistan live.
