Pakistan-China friendship is beyond the cultures and languages and the Chinese community in Lahore is deeply moved to see Pakistanis celebrating our national day as of Pakistan, said Chinese Consul General Lahore Yun Boren while addressing the celebrations of the National Day of China at Government College University (GCU) on Wednesday.
The Chinese community residing in Lahore also attended the ceremony. “The people of Pakistan and China fill the cultural and language gaps with strong feelings of love and respect which they have for each other,” said Yu Boren who on Wednesday also gifted books on culture, geography and political and economic systems of China to the university's Centre for Excellence in China Studies (CECS) .
Yu Boren said he was impressed to see GCU-CECS students speaking very good Chinese with him adding he had also told them that he was also learning Urdu. He said the language would help us understand our cultures and history. He also said Pakistan and China were increasing people-to-people contact. He said the youths of both countries were the future of Pakistan-China friendship.
Addressing the ceremony, GCU Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Hassan Amir Shah said every Pakistani was impressed by the economic development of China during the last 66 years adding “we should not only admire China, but also must learn from its experiences and initiatives which have made it an economic power.” He expressed the gratitude to the Chinese Consul General for his support to GCU-CECS in shape of equipment and books.
GCU-CECS Director Dr Khalid Manzoor Butt, who had returned from China on Wednesday morning after an official visit on the directions of the chief minister, said the love and respect which Chinese gave to Pakistanis was unprecedented in the whole world. He hoped Pakistan would also progress with the support of his friend China.
