Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the One Belt and One Road (OBOR) Initiative would eventually become a symbol of Pakistan-China friendship.

In his message on the social media website Twitter, Qureshi said it would be an icon for bilateral friendship since both Pakistan and China were charting new frontiers.

The foreign minister, who is in China as part of the Pakistan delegation attending China’s Belt and Road summit, hailed the Great Wall of China as a symbol of the country’s achievements.

He also shared a picture of his autograph with the words, “long live Pakistan-China friendship, the only iron brothers in the world”.
