Pakistani political party vows to learn from China


11:03, November 03, 2011

BEIJING, Nov. 2 (Xinhua) -- A Pakistani political party on Wednesday expressed its desire to learn from China and boost China-Pakistan relations.

Imran Khan, president of the Pakistan Movement for Justice (Tehreek-e-Insaf), made the remark during an exclusive interview with Xinhua.

Khan said China has always been a friend to the Pakistan Movement for Justice, adding that it is important for his party to engage the CPC.

"My party is here because we believe that the one country we can learn the most from in terms of development is China," Khan said.

Khan said nearly half of Pakistan's population lives in poverty, which has encouraged his party to learn from the CPC in dealing with poverty alleviation.

Khan said that corruption has also been discussed during his visit. "Corruption is the biggest issue in Pakistan right now," he said.

The Pakistan Movement for Justice was founded in 1996.
