He said that China's phenomenal success in the last forty years that resulted in socio economic uplift of the people offers a great example for developing countries.

State Councillor Wang Yi said: "The Chinese side will continue to provide support and help to the best of its ability for Pakistan's economic and social development and national construction".

Li said the former cricket star's visit would "further consolidate and develop the firm, enduring ties between our two countries".

According to reports from Pakistan, the new bus service will be launched between Lahore in Pakistan and Kashgar in China via PaK on November 3.

"In 2017, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said that it is only by respecting the autonomy of countries involved, there can be regional connectivity and avoid differences and disorientation".

A document on strategic-level talks between foreign ministers of two countries was also signed.

"China appreciates Pakistan's quest for peace through dialogue, cooperation, and negotiation, on the basis of mutual respect and equality, and supports Pakistan's efforts for improvement of Pakistan-India relations and for settlement of outstanding disputes between the two countries", the statement added. "If there were to be any change, it would be an increase going forward", he said.

"Thirty years ago, China's GDP was the same as Pakistan's is today and the way in which China changed itself in 30 years is something I want Pakistani scholars to study because it was not one thing, it was a series of things", he said. Khan had initially vowed to curb borrowing, but has proceeded with projects such as one to build 5 million public housing units and has predicted that Pakistan would soon overcome its economic woes. The Chinese delegation was led by Prime Minister Li Keqiang. "It gives us an opportunity to raise our standard of living (and) growth rate", Khan said.

The PM's four-day visit is intended at reviewing the entire range of bilateral relations and to participate in the First China International Import Expo; both the sides are also tipped to ink several agreements and MoUs of cooperation in multiple fields.

The prime minister extended an invitation to President Xi Jinping to visit Pakistan, which was accepted. He conveyed his desire to work with him for strengthening Pakistan-China Strategic Cooperative Partnership for shared future.

On the Kashmir issue, China's oft repeated stand was that it should be resolved peacefully through dialogue.

"China, through CPEC, has given Pakistan an opportunity to attract [foreign] investments".

During the meeting, Khan thanked President Xi for extending warm hospitality to him and his delegation in China. China has so far objected to India's formal membership of the NSG, which has become a major point of friction between New Delhi and Beijing.

The premier is accompanied by Minister for Planning Khusru Bakhtiar, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Finance Minister Asad Umar, Railways Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, Adviser to the Prime Minister on Commerce, Industry and Investment Abdul Razzak Dawood, and Chief Minister of Balochistan Jam Mir Kamal on his trip.

Earlier, President Xi warmly welcomed Prime Minister Imran Khan and his delegation upon their arrival at the Great Hall of the People.
