The ceremony was attended by Pakistan’s Ambassador to China, Moin ul Haque, and officials from Hubei Province and Wuhan City.
While speaking on occasion, Ambassador Haque said,” China-Pakistan Friendship Square reflects the great affinity and solidarity, deep love, trust and respect between our two countries and peoples.”
Haque went on to say that Pakistan plans to open a China-Pakistan Friendship Square in Karachi soon in response to this initiative.
It was reported by China Economic Net (CEN) that Sindh province in Pakistan and Hubei province in China would sign agreements to establish sister province and city relations with Karachi and Wuhan, as well as Kahuta Punjab in Pakistan and Yiling district in Hubei province, respectively.
