He told the Chinese people that "you have done wonders, and we would like to see China move from where it is to even greater heights."

"Pakistan has a lot to learn from China and China is helping promote Pakistan's socio-economic development," said Qureshi.

He said that the "two friends" are promoting connectivity and socio-economic development through the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, a major Belt and Road cooperation project.

He made the remarks after touring an exhibition titled "Pursuing Happiness for the People: 70 Years of Human Rights Progress in China" held at the Palais des Nations.
