Islamabad: The President of Pakistan, Mr. Asif Ali Zardari has greeted the Government and the people of China on the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the Communist Party of China. Following is the text of the message sent by the Pakistani President to President Hu Jintao on this occasion:
“It gives me great pleasure to extend to Your Excellency, the Government and the people of China most cordial greetings on the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the Communist Party of China.
China’s achievements are a source of pride and inspiration for Pakistan. China’s continued success is a testimony to the commitment and vision of its leadership and the hard work and discipline of its people. As friends and neighbours, we in Pakistan view this success as a positive force for peace and stability in the region and beyond.
The Communist Party of China, with its around 80 million members, has played a key role in China’s development and progress. It has also made immense contributions towards promoting Pakistan-China friendship at various levels and in diverse fields. We are grateful for these contributions.
It is indeed a happy coincidence that the 90th anniversary of Communist Party of China and the 60th anniversary of establishment of Pakistan-China diplomatic relations are being celebrated this year. The Pakistan People’s Party takes pride in its historic linkages with China and the Communist Party of China. We remain committed to promoting partnership between Pakistan and China in a mutually beneficial manner.
I avail myself this opportunity to convey to our friends, the assurance of our continued friendship and our deep and resolute commitment to further expand our collaboration and cooperation.
Please accept, Excellency, most sincere assurances of my highest consideration and esteem”, says a press release received here today from China.
