Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf said that Pakistan-China relationship is broad-based and would see further development in the future.
Musharraf made the remarks in an interview with Xinhua ahead of his upcoming state visit to China from April 10 to 15.
Musharraf spoke highly of the all-weather and time-tested friendship between Pakistan and China, saying that "the base for this relationship is broad, not uni-focused".
Besides strong diplomatic relations between the two countries, Musharraf said, Pakistan and China have also maintained sound cooperation in such areas as education, defense production, trade and international affairs.
Musharraf extended his appreciation for China's assistance on some mega projects, including the Karakoram Highway, a link between Pakistan and China which is under expansion, and the Gwardar Port.
The president also encouraged more Chinese enterprises to invest in his country to achieve win-win results.
"There is a big market, then we have created an investor-friendly environment here in Pakistan where any investor gets a lot of benefits, advantages and has a scope to make money," he said.
Musharraf said that Pakistan has also created special industrial zones in the Gwardar Port in southern Pakistan and other areas which are favorable for Chinese investors.
The president said that the two countries also have close cooperation in fighting terrorism, adding that Pakistan would give full support for China's action against the "Eastern Turkistan" terrorist group.
"In the future, I see very bright and very strong relations," Musharraf said.
