China's top political advisor Jia Qinglin met with Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif, president of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), in Beijing on Wednesday, where the officials vowed to maintain exchanges between political parties in both countries.

Jia, a member of the Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee's Political Bureau, spoke highly of the relationship between the CPC and Pakistani political parties.

He said the CPC will maintain high-level exchanges with the PML-N, strengthen communication between young politicians and promote sound, stable and sustainable development in relations between the two countries.

Sharif said the PML-N, Pakistan's largest opposition party, attaches great importance to its relations with the CPC. It will further enhance exchanges and cooperation with the CPC, learn from the party and promote the in-depth development of Pakistan-China relations.

Jia, also chairman of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) National Committee, said the relationship between China and Pakistan was "solid as a rock," and the two countries' "harmonious, trustful and friendly" relationship has become a model of the kind of relationship that can exist between countries with different cultural backgrounds.

"China will continue to support Pakistan's efforts to safeguard national security, maintain social stability and promote economic development. China also appreciates the firm support given by the Pakistani government on issues concerning China's core interests," Jia said.

He vowed that the Chinese government will encourage more companies to join in Pakistan's development. China will work with Pakistan to deepen their friendship and expand cooperation.

Sharif said Pakistan and China are best friends, and that their friendship is built on the basis of mutual understanding, trust and respect.

Pakistan is grateful for China's efforts to help Pakistan realize prosperity and stability, and will continue to promote bilateral friendship and cooperation.

Sharif and his delegates were invited by the International Department of the CPC Central Committee.
