In a bid to boost local infrastructure, the Punjab government has decided to initiate the “Five Sister Cities” project with China.

The Local Development Department, in collaboration with Punjab Authorities, has prepared a letter of intent that will be tabled before the provincial cabinet when it meets tomorrow.

The letter of intent proposes the creation of five sister cities under the Year of Friendship Sister Cities 2019 to promote friendly relations between the two countries.

The process is a continuation of the developments of March 2019 when the Chinese cities Urumqi, Puyang, and Xi’an were declared as sister cities to Karachi, Gwadar, and Multan.

The authorities hope that the Sister Cities agreement will help strengthen the people-to-people bond between the two countries and will yield benefits at political, social, cultural, and economic levels.


    • Also if you could stop eating snakes and whatnot that spread in deadly diseases, that’d be great too. Thanks!

    • Pakistan has nothing to do with Uyghur its their internal matter we should only do what is best for Pakistan interest.

      • By that logic Pakistan also has nothing to do with Kashmir. Because Kashmir is India’s internal matter and “we should only do what is best for Pakistan interest.”

        See how that logic fails in 2 seconds? We can’t be the defenders of Muslims in Kashmir while also handing Chinese Muslims for slaughter.

        • Kashmir is a disputed region according to United nations. So your comparison is absolutely wrong. Also stop larping as a Pakistani you freaking curry stinking pajeet.

          • Now you want to go by UN? According to UN, China is in gross violation of human rights because of concentration camps oppressing Muslims.

            Secondly, I’m for Kashmir, you m0r*n.

          • You don’t seem to be able to process logical arguments so I’ll put it simply, China’s “internal matter” argument doesn’t stand up any more than India’s “Kasmir is our internal matter”. Does it make sense now? You m0r*n?

          • Before picking up your pitchforks and branding others Indians, next time use that real estate between your ears that you never seem to use.

  • Wo Din Dooor Nahi Jab Pakistan K Cities China K Naam Pe Honge :
    China bohat jald takup karene wala hai sub

  • I guess Baluchistan, KPK and Sindh are not really part of Pakistan. (Karachi is not considered as part of Sindh as per major parties)

  • It would be a total disaster , no one is fore-seeing the impact of Chinese Colonization. Our government doesn’t have any vision to get benefits from China’s greed to take over eurasia trade route. We should facilitate them with restricted policies to register under kafeel system like in middle east and business would be on sharing mostly joint ventures done with locals and chinese businessmen. Only this way , atleast our people would be able to generate a good share and employment opportunities would be created
