China-Pakistan friendship sweeter than honey: Sharif

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Friday told his Chinese counterpart Li Keqiang their countries’ relationship was ‘sweeter than honey’, during a visit to Beijing with economic ties at the top of the agenda. Pakistan and China are close diplomatic and military allies and Sharif, who is on his first foreign trip since his May election, is looking to secure infrastructure projects to tackle a chronic energy crisis and economic malaise in his country. At the Great Hall of the People in the Chinese capital, Sharif said his welcome ‘reminds me of the saying, our friendship is higher than the Himalayas and deeper than the deepest sea in the world, and sweeter than honey’. Li told him: ‘I greatly appreciate your great warmth.’
