Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang’s Regular Press Conference on July 26, 2018z
Q: According to the latest trends, Imran Khan of the PTI party seems to take a lead in the election, but we cannot confirm the results so far. There have also been allegations by the previous governing party, saying that it would reject the results because of irregularities in the election process. Do you have any comment? Are you concerned at all about the current developments?
A: We are pleased to see that Pakistan has held a successful election, and sincerely hope that Pakistan will maintain political and social stability and focus on national development. The China-Pakistan friendship receives heartfelt support and acclamation of the two peoples. Whatever the result of the election is, it won’t affect the development of China-Pakistan relations. The Chinese side is ready to work with the new Pakistani government for greater progress in our all-weather strategic cooperative partnership.
