President Alvi, in his message to Xi, reaffirmed the commitment to further elevate the friendship between the two countries to new heights.

Alvi said both the countries have remained friends in good and bad times and their friendship is a guarantor of peace in the region.

He said that despite difficulties, both the countries have rendered immense sacrifices to achieve their objectives.

Alvi said that Pakistan fully supported the BRI of which CPEC was an important part.

“From the beginning, when Pakistan needed to improve its energy supplies, establish industry not only along the route but across the country, special economic zones, CPEC was going to be a harbinger,” he said.

In a separate message to Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said China has always prioritised Pakistan in its foreign policy, and is ready to work with it to lift their all-weather strategic cooperative partnership to a higher level in the next 70 years.

Khan said in his message that the Pakistani government was firmly committed to speeding up the construction of CPEC and is willing to work with China to push for further development of the strategic cooperative partnership between the two countries, so as to create a better future for their people.

Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Nong Rong said that since the establishment of bilateral ties, the China-Pakistan friendship remained rock solid and also became a role model of state to state relations.

The two countries established diplomatic relations on May 21, 1951 and special events were being held to celebrate its 70th anniversary.

The CPEC is a flagship project of China”s prestigious Silk Road project, officially called OBOR.

The 3,000-km CPEC is aimed at connecting China and Pakistan with rail, road, pipelines and optical fibre cable networks and It will connect Xinjiang province with Gwadar port, providing China with access to the Arabian Sea.

The project, when completed, would enable China to route its oil supplies from the Middle East through pipelines to Xinjiang, cutting considerable distance for Chinese ships to travel to China

publication_icon Philipp Heimberger ,  Mario Holzner and Artem Kochnev wiiw Research Report No. 430, August 2018  43 pages including 10 Tables and 17 Figures FREE DOWNLOAD The German version can be found  here .

Central parts are the route from Lyon to Moscow in the north and from Milan to Constanţa in the south. The southern route would link Central Europe with the Black Sea area and
