BEIJING: The Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Thursday that the Chinese government expected that all the political parties in Pakistan would stay united and uphold the supreme interest of the country’s development and stability.

While responding to a question about the no-confidence move against incumbent Prime Minister Imran Khan by the Opposition, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said: 

“China is committed to non-interference policy, adding that as an all weather strategic cooperative partner and friendly neighbour of Pakistan, it is our sincere hope that all parties in Pakistan will stay united and uphold the major interest of country’s developments and stability.”

Pakistan is currently going through political turmoil as pressure mounts with every passing day towards the vote of no-confidence against PM Imran Khan.

The PM Imran Khan-led government has lost the majority in the Lower House and the no-confidence motion against the premier with most of the allied parties siding with the Opposition.

The united Opposition submitted a no-trust motion against the premier on March 8, 2022,  — on which the National Assembly is expected to vote on April 3.
