Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has met with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing on Wednesday.

The dispute over India’s move to scrap Kashmir’s special status and the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor were the main topics of discussion between two leaders. And China President is expected to travel to New Delhi soon.

According to a statement released by the Pakistani PM office in Islamabad, the Pakistani leader thanked Xi and the Chinese government for their “support on the Kashmir issue,” and for China’s financial support to Pakistani in difficult times.

“We will never forget China’s financial cooperation in this regard,” Khan was quoted as saying in Radio, adding that China helped Pakistan come out of a difficult economic situation.

The Pakistani leader also appreciated the Chinese support under the multi-billion dollar China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

Kashmir has been in a state of lockdown since Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi abrogated its special status on August 5.
