ISLAMABAD, May 15 (APP): Pakistan and China are celebrating
2016 as a year of friendship to mark 65 years of diplomatic relations that are constantly moving on an ascending trajectory and gaining strength with the passage of time.

The two countries have prepared a number of events to celebrate
the anniversary of their friendship, which is unique in many ways in the recent history of state to state and people to people relations.

The friendly relationship has been described over the years by
the leaderships of the two countries as all weather, time tested, deeper than the oceans and higher than Himalayas, sweeter than honey, and lately, as strategic and stronger than steel. These expressions are not simple cliches but truly reflect the strength, depth and maturity of the relationship constructed over the last 65 years.
