This was stated by Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi in his virtual address to the Ruling Parties Dialogue between PTI and CPC, held at Islamabad and Beijing. The PTI and CPC inked a Memorandum of Understanding on further strengthening their cooperation. The foreign minister said PTI was willing to further deepen party-to-party cooperation with CPC, learn from each other, and share vital experiences on governance, party building and party organization. “We stand ready to enhance cooperation between our two countries and two political parties for realization of our respective dreams,” he said. Qureshi said party-to-party relations were an important facet of the bilateral cooperation, adding that Communist Party of China and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf enjoyed cordial relations. In the past few years, we have learnt from each other’s experiences through enhanced interaction and mutual exchanges, he added.
