He called on the two sides to maintain close high-level contact and strengthen coordination on international and regional affairs, to lift bilateral ties to new heights.

He suggested that the two countries should enhance defense and security cooperation and push forward the building of the CPEC in an orderly manner.

To ensure the smooth construction of the CPEC, the Pakistan armed forces will resolutely safeguard its security, he said.
