BEIJING, Aug. 16 (Xinhua) -- Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Thursday met with Pakistan's Chairman of Senate Sadiq Sanjrani.

Pakistan has just held a successfully general election, Wang said, adding that he believed Pakistan's national construction would gain new achievements under the new government.

"China is willing to support Pakistan to uphold its sovereignty and right to development, make joint efforts with Pakistan to boost the construction of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, as well as to deepen the bilateral all-weather strategic cooperative partnership," Wang said.

Sanjrani said Pakistan would always uphold a friendly policy towards China, which was the consensus reached by all parties in Pakistan and a cornerstone of Pakistan's foreign policy.

"The new government is ready to work with China to push forward the construction of Belt and Road Initiative and the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor," Sanjrani said.
