Last updated on October 3, 2019

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan will earn a three-day trip to China next week for meetings with the Chinese leadership and members of the company community, based on media reports.

The dates for Khan’s trip to China, his third since assuming office in August this past year, haven’t been formally announced yet. But, according to the officials, Khan’s trip will begin on October 8.

Khan is expected to hold meetings with President Xi Jinping along with other senior Chinese officers to thank the leadership in Beijing for financing Islamabad about the Kashmir issue.

The trip will occur against the background of increased tensions between India and Pakistan within the revocation of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status as well as the reorganization of this nation. Pakistan has turned to China to get assistance because of its attempts to internationalize the Kashmir problem, however, India has claimed that the fluctuations in the country are an internal issue.

Officials said a memorandum of understanding will be signed during the trip. Khan can be expected to satisfy prospective Chinese investors and a few memorandums of understanding will be signed during the trip.

Following his election to premier office in Pakistan this past year, Khan first visited China in November 2018.

Speaking at the discussion, he’d said Pakistan and China are prepared to begin the next stage of this China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), that’s the very high-profile artery at Xi’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), a dollar inter-continental connectivity program which intends to revive ancient sea and land trade routes between China, the remainder of Asia and Europe.
