Interestingly, the Global Times said China has established its "first overseas military base in", in the Horn of Africa in Indian Ocean.

Pakistani analyst Sheikh Fahad said, "China and Pakistan have found common ground in terms of maritime interest in the region".

The news appears to confirm a recent report from a retired American officer regarding negotiations for a new Chinese naval base at Jiwani, a small fishing port on a peninsula west of Gwadar.

Pakistan already has deep historical ties going back to many years and they have close military ties, the official said, adding that the economic relationship is also growing with the China Pakistan Economic Corridor.

In June 2017, a Pentagon report had singled out Pakistan as a possible location for a future Chinese military base.




Noting that China has taken a more active role in trying to help stabilise Afghanistan, trying to improve relations between Afghanistan and Pakistan, the official said the USA believe that the Chinese are also interested in stability in Pakistan and also for the China Pakistan Economic Corridor.

Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Lu Kang said that "pointing fingers" at each other is not conducive to global counter-terrorism efforts. Last year, spokesperson Hua Chunying called rumors of a potential naval base at Gwadar "irresponsible remarks" and "hearsay". Pakistan deserves full acknowledgement from the global community on its counter-terrorism efforts.

Pakistan Foreign Service Academy and China Foreign Affairs Studies University signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to further enhance cooperation in research, academic exchanges and training of young diplomats here on Tuesday.

In the wake of increasing pressure from the United States on Pakistan for allegedly providing safe havens to militant outfits, China on Monday opposed the idea of linking terrorism to a certain nation as well as placing responsibility on a certain country, according to Radio Pakistan. "It has made a prominent contribution to global anti-terror efforts, and the worldwide community should fully recognize this", said spokesperson Geng Shuang at a regular press briefing.

The commercial counselor hoped that due to the proactive role of Pakistan High Commission London, the bilateral commercial relations would further strengthen in the time to come.
