Zardari, Bilwal visit China amid Pak turmoil

Former Pakistani president Asif Ali Zardari and his son Bilawal on Wednesday met a top Chinese leader, amid a deepening political crisis back home. Zardari, a frequent visitor to China during his presidency, called on chairman of the China People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) Yu Zhengsheng, the fourth ranking member of the Chinese Communist Party. He was accompanied by Bilawal and other members of the Pakistani delegation.

Zardari is the second Pakistani politician currently in China. Punjab Chief Minister and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s brother Shahbaz is also visiting China, with reports suggesting that he may seek Beijing’s support for the embattled Pakistan government.
