The Pakistan Prime Minister, Mr. Imran Khan, has arrived in Beijing on Tuesday on a two-day visit to China during which he will hold talks with the top Chinese leadership, including President Xi Jinping, and discuss issues of regional and bilateral significance.
Mr. Khan was received by the Chinese Minister for Culture, Mr. Luo Shugang, Ambassador of China to Pakistan, Mr. Yao Jing and the Pakistan officials.
Mr. Khan will reportedly meet the country's top leadership, including Mr. Xi, and discuss issues of regional and bilateral significance. His visit to China, third since he took over as Prime Minister in August last year, acquires significance as it comes days ahead of Mr. Xi's planned high-profile visit to India to take part in the 2nd informal summit with the Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, at Mamallapuram near Chennai this week.
However, there has been no official announcement here yet on Mr. Xi's India visit. The Pakistani leader will have separate meetings with Mr. Xi and the Chinese Premier, Mr. Li Keqiang, to discuss issues of regional and bilateral significance.
