Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Yao Jing on Monday called on Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi.

A statement issued by the Foreign Office said that the two leaders discussed matters related to mutual interest, and Ambassador Jing reiterated his government's desire to work closely with the new government.

Qureshi, on the other hand, praised Chinese President Xi Jinping's vision for China's socio-economic development. He said Pakistan could learn a lot from China's experience in the sector, especially in the field of agriculture.

The foreign minister also expressed his eagerness to welcome State Councillor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi to Pakistan in September.

The foreign minister looked forward to an in-depth exchange of views with his Chinese counterpart on all matters of mutual interest, the statement added.
