Pak-China Friendship Celebrations in AJK

The year 2011 is to be celebrated in AJK as Pak-China Friendship Year with yearlong enthusiastic events involving all tiers of social strata, particularly youth force, academics, business community and government officials, holding of exhibitions, Pak-China seminars, sports and public receptions.

The 60th anniversary of Pakistan-China diplomatic ties falls on May 21, 2011. Kashmiris take pride in the world-model relations between the peoples and governments of Pakistan and China since their founding day on May 21, 1951.

The special anniversary events include holding of business conferences, open shows/exhibitions of arts and crafts from district level upwards.

China upholds the justness of Kashmir cause and stresses resolution of the Kashmir dispute via peaceful negotiations between Pakistan and India. In his recent India visit the Chinese Prime Minister Mr Wen Jiabao while in New Delhi had reiterated for settlement of this dispute between Pakistan and India.

China has already undertaken in AJK development projects worth trillions of dollars like reconstruction of Muzaffarabad Capital City, 969-megawatt Neelum-Jhelum hydropower project and many others. The Kashmiri youth are much interested in acquiring higher professional and technical education in China.

Beijing accords staple visit visas to Kashmiris from India-held Kashmir. But New Delhi frowns over this exclusive facility to Kashmiris, choosing it as a cause of diplomatic row between the two countries.
