China stands ready to work with Pakistan to continue jointly building the One Belt and One Road
Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Lu Kang, while reacting to news of the Supreme Court's verdict in the Panama Papers case, said during a press briefing: "We believe that the China-Pakistan strategic cooperative partnership will not be affected by the change of the situation inside Pakistan. China stands ready to work with Pakistan to continue jointly building the One Belt and One Road." Terming the court's ruling ─ and subsequent denotification of the prime minister ─ an "internal affair of Pakistan", China expressed hope that various parties and sections in Pakistan could "prioritise state and national interests, properly deal with their domestic affairs, maintain unity and stability, and keep focusing on the economic and social development." The all-weather friendship between China and Pakistan has withstood the test of times, Kang added.
