English-language China Global Television Network (CGTN) conducted an interview of the Prime Minister Imran Khan on account of 70th anniversary of the bilateral diplomatic relations amid both the countries and 100th anniversary of CPEC.
According to PM Imran Khan, the relationship between Pakistan and China has become stronger with the passage of time.
During the interview, Imran Khan “Pakistan thinks that it is very unfair for the US or the Western powers for countries like us to take sides,’Why do we have to take sides?’ We should have good relationship with everyone.”
“if pressure put on Pakistan to change its relationship with China, it won’t happen”, he further added.
Moreover, Imran Khan stated “whenever Pakistan was in trouble, politically or internationally, when we had conflicts with our neighbour, China always stood with us”.
“You only remember a friend who stands with you in your difficult times. In good times, everyone stands with you, but in your difficult, tough times, bad times, you remember those people who stood by you.”
