During the talk following the presentation of the credentials, Ambassador Liu first passed the good-will wishes of Chinese President Hu Jintao to the Pakistani president.

He thanked the president for his contributions to the consolidation and development of the Sino-Pak traditional friendship and the practical cooperation between the two countries and expressed appreciation for the positive results achieved by the Pakistani government in pushing forward social progress, cracking down on terrorism, improving people's living standards and promoting regional stability and harmony.

He said that the Chinese government and the Chinese people greatly value the Sino-Pak friendship which has stood firm against any changes occurring in the region and across the world.

President Zardari asked Ambassador Liu to convey his cordial greetings to President Hu Jintao and welcomed Liu as China's new ambassador to Pakistan.

He said Pakistan is happy with the positive developing trend of the relations between the two countries and feels proud of the tremendous achievements of the social and economic development in China.

The president said that he is looking forward to in-depth exchanges of views with the Chinese leaders during his coming fifth visit to China over further deepening and expanding all- weather friendship and all-round cooperation between the two countries under a new era.
