China’s Ministry of National Defence spokesperson Colonel Ren Guoqiang on Thursday said defence and military cooperation between Islamabad and Beijing would help maintain regional and international peace and security.
“China and Pakistan share an all-weather partnership. We have maintained a very high level of defence and military exchange and cooperation,” the spokesperson said while responding to a question during his monthly briefing.
Colonel Guoqiang expressed confidence that China-Pakistan military exchange and cooperation will help facilitate state-to-state cooperation between the two countries.
“This exchange and cooperation will also maintain regional and international peace and stability,” he added.
Regarding military exchanges and joint exercises between the two countries in the future, the spokesperson said both the countries have been discussing it.
Last year, China and Pakistan’s air forces conducted a joint training exercise “Shaheen VI” in September followed by a joint naval exercise between the navies of the two countries in December.
