Islamabad :Nawaz to attend Zardari's dinner for Chinese PM

Islamabad Dec 12 President Asif Ali Zardari Sunday telephoned PML-N Quaid Mian Nawaz Sharif and invited him to the banquet which will be hosted by the President in honor of the Chinese Prime Minister on 18th December during his visit to Pakistan.

Mian Nawaz Sharif accepted the invitation.

The President thanked the former Prime Minister for accepting the invitation to attend the banquet in honor of the Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao at Aiwan-e-Sadr.

Chinese Premier will pay a three-day official visit to Pakistan from Dec. 17. During the visit, he will meet President Asif Zardari and Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani to discuss wide-ranging topics of bilateral interest.

The focus of the talks will be on building up mutually beneficial economic partnership, and moving forward to have greater understanding and cooperation on regional and international affairs.

Chinese PM will also address the joint session of the Parliament on December 19 (Sunday). Speaker National Assembly Dr Fehmida Mirza will chair the joint session of the Parliament.

Political analysts say that invitation to PML-N leader at the banquet for the Chinese Prime Minister is a positive move. China is a trusted friend of Pakistan and Mian Nawaz Sharif cannot afford to stay away from the dinner.

They say it is yet to be seen how their face to face meeting on this important occasion will lead to improvement in understanding between the two top political parties of the country on key national issues.
