PPP congratulates Xi on re-election as CPC’s general secretary


ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) congratulated Chinese President Xi Jinping on his re-election as the general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC).

PPP Vice President Senator Sherry Rehman said that her party extends its warmest good wishes and congratulations to President Xi on his well-deserved re-election. “Under President Xi’s steadfast leadership during his first term, China has achieved remarkable economic and development milestones,” she said.

“PPP and CPC have always maintained a special relationship. One which was forged by former prime minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, cemented by former prime minister Benazir Bhutto and championed by former president Asif Ali Zardari. Under the leadership of Chairman Bilawal Bhutto, we seek to bring our mutual relationship into a brighter future for Pakistan,” she said.

She said that the PPP would continue to work closely with the CPC as China continues to establish a stronger presence in Pakistan. Senator Sherry also commented on the landmark amendment to the Chinese Constitution made during the 19th CPC Congress, saying, “it is remarkable to know that the One Belt-One Road project is now going to be a part of the Chinese Constitution.”

She said that this was a testament to China’s commitment to achieving regional cohesion and peace through long-term and meaningful economic partnerships. “We in PPP could not be more proud to be a part of this landmark vision of President Xi and the CPC,” she said.

“We look forward to further strengthening our ties through bilateral cooperation for our mutual long-term interests of shared prosperity and regional peace,” she said.
