China, Pakistan pledge to enhance military cooperation
China and Pakistan pledged to enhance strategic communication and cooperation between their militaries during the 8th Sino-Pakistani Defense and Security Talks held here Wednesday.
China attaches great importance and is devoted to pushing forward relations between the two militaries, Chen Bingde, Chief of General Staff of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, told visiting General Khalid Shameem Wynne, Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee of Pakistan.
China is willing to work with Pakistan to develop the mechanism of defense and security talks, deepen strategic cooperation and contribute to the peace, stability and common development in the region and the world, Chen said.
Wynne said the traditional friendship between Pakistan and China is an example of a healthy bilateral relationship.
The Pakistani army is willing to continue to strengthen friendly communication and cooperation with the Chinese army, and make more efforts to safeguard the two countries' development and security interests, Wynne said.
The First China-Pakistan Defense and Security Talks was held in March 2002.
Pakistan, China to hold joint military exercises in 2011: Pakistani senior military leader
Pakistan and China will hold two joint military exercises in 2011, a Pakistani senior military leader said Tuesday.
The two exercises, one army drill and one air force one, will be held to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between Pakistan and China, said General Khalid Shameem Wynne, chairman of Pakistan's Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee.
Wynne, who is paying a five-day visit to China, told reporters that the two countries will also participate in a multinational navy drill in March.
Wynne hailed the strategic partnership between Pakistan and China, saying it is "the best example" of bilateral ties and a "stabilizing force" in the region.
"The China-Pakistan partnership is a source of comfort and stability for the entire region," Wynne said.
The visit is Wynne's first official visit to China since he was promoted to the rank of general and assumed his present position in October 2010.
In July 2010, Wynne led a joint anti-terrorism drill between Pakistan and China in Qingtongxia in northwest China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region.
