ISLAMABAD: Former Chinese information minister and Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Chinese Peoples Political Consultative Congress (CPPCC) Zhao Qizheng on Monday said that China was ready to share its expertise in the energy sector with Pakistan, including wind power generators. He was talking to the media at the Parliament house following his meeting with members of the Senate Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs. Qizheng was leading a six-member Chinese parliamentary delegation. He said that Beijing will also cooperate with Pakistan in boosting its industrial sectors, particularly mobile phone and automobile industries. He said that the Chinese government was eager to explore new avenues of cooperation with Pakistan as both the countries had a 60-year history of friendship and time-tested bilateral relations. “The Chinese coasts, unlike Pakistan, lacked coal reserves. So we go for nuclear technology to meet our energy needs,” he said and added that China had wind power generation technology, which can be shared with Pakistan.
