In a significant diplomatic move, China and Pakistan have jointly opposed any unilateral actions for resolving South Asia's outstanding issues. Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, during his visit to Beijing, briefed Chinese leaders on the Kashmir situation while discussing the close military ties between the two countries.

Sharif's four-day visit, which began after he assumed office in March, focused on bolstering Chinese investments in Pakistan amid an acute economic crisis. Both nations emphasized the importance of maintaining peace and resolving disputes through dialogue.

The visit coincided with India's general election results and the swearing-in of Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a third term. This diplomatic exchange aims to counter India's influence in the region while reinforcing Pakistan-China strategic cooperation.
