Chinese top diplomats in Pakistan to meet new government

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) – The Chinese government’s top diplomat was in Pakistan on Saturday for the first high-level meetings between the neighbours since new Prime Minister Imran Khan took office, the south Asian nation’s foreign office said.

Beijing has pledged $57 billion in loans for Pakistan as part of its vast Belt and Road initiative, deepening ties at a time when Islamabad’s relations with Washington are fraying over how to deal with militants waging war in Afghanistan.
