    China-Pakistan friendship 'sweeter than honey': Sharif

    BEIJING: Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Friday told his Chinese counterpart Li Keqiang their countries' relationship was "sweeter than honey", during a visit to Beijing with economic ties at the top of the agenda.

    Pakistan and China are close diplomatic and military allies and Sharif, who is on his first foreign trip since his May election, is looking to secure infrastructure projects to tackle a chronic energy crisis and economic malaise in his country.

    At the Great Hall of the People in the Chinese capital, Sharif said his welcome "reminds me of the saying, our friendship is higher than the Himalayas and deeper than the deepest sea in the world, and sweeter than honey".

    Li told him: "I greatly appreciate your great warmth and deep affection for the people of China."

    The Chinese premier was the first foreign leader to visit Pakistan after Sharif's victory at the polls.

    Beijing has been involved with the upgrade of the Karakoram Highway as part of a proposed economic corridor between the two countries.

    Earlier this year China took control of Pakistan's Gwadar port, giving it access to the Arabian Sea and Strait of Hormuz, a gateway for a third of the world's traded oil.

    China-Pakistan trade last year reached $12 billion and is targeted to rise to $15 billion in the next two to three years.

    On Thursday Sharif held talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping, amid concerns in his country over weak growth, inflation and power cuts of up to 20 hours a day.

    Xi, who referred to Sharif as an old friend and a good brother, said strengthening strategic cooperation with Islamabad was a priority for China's diplomacy, the state-run broadcaster China Central Television reported.

    Sharif said his country welcomed Chinese investment and would work to create a friendly environment for it.

    The threat of terrorism is also expected to figure during Sharif's discussions.

    Pakis had the same assumption with US too but we all know how the bee stopped giving honey and changed to drone and distributed death to Pakis and forced Pakis to kill Pakis... as a result over 50,000 Pakis dead since WOT.That US bee is stinging Pakis each day.

    Seems like Pakis never learn and want to be just to be a slave of a new Master.

    I love the metaphor, sweeter than honey, higher than mountains.

    Chinese are good at making friends, and always stay true to friendships. Just look at Cambodia, N. Korea, Myanmar, Tanzania et al, all time tested and unswerving.

    China failed Pakistan in 1965, 1971 & 1999 :)

    Not to forget the recent treatment Chinese got in Africa exploiting the local people...

    that's understandable. the outdoor temp may be way above 30c and they have to dress up in suits. everyone pulls a long face in sauna.

    Nice picture.

    Nawaz Sharif looks dazed.

    Xi appears bored and his features appear to suggest - let us get this over as fast as possible! :wink:

    Both will be singing this Pat Boone number:



    Well, now, everybody's gonna have religion and glory
    Everybody's gonna be a-singin' that story
    Everybody's gonna have a wonderful time up there
    Oh, glory hallelujah
    Brother, there's a reckonin' a-comin' in the mornin'
    Better get ready 'cause I'm givin' you the warnin'
    Everybody's gonna have a wonderful time up there

    Now listen, everybody 'cause I'm talkin' to you
    The Lord is the only one to carry you through
    Ya better get ready 'cause I'm tellin' ya why
    The Lord is a-comin' from his throne on high
    Goin' down the valley, goin' one by one
    We're gonna be rewarded for the things we've done
    How ya gonna feel about the things you'll say on that judgmentday?

    Well-a, well-a, well-a
    Well, now, everybody's gonna have religion and glory
    Everybody's gonna be a-singin' that story
    Everybody's gonna have a wonderful time up there
    Oh, glory hallelujah
    Brother, there's a reckonin' a-comin' in the mornin'
    Better get ready 'cause I'm givin' you the warnin'
    Everybody's gonna have a wonderful time up there

    Now ya get your Holy Bible in the back of the book
    The book of Revelations is the place ya look
    If you understand it and you can if you try
    The Lord is a-comin' from his throne on high
    a-readin' in the Bible 'bout the things he said
    He said he's comin' back again to raise the dead
    Are ya gonna be among the chosen few?
    Or will you make it through?

    Well-a, well-a, well-a
    Everybody's gonna have religion and glory
    Everybody's gonna be a-singin' that story
    Everybody's gonna have a wonderful time up there
    Oh, glory hallelujah
    Brother, there's a reckonin' comin' in the mornin'
    Better get ready 'cause I'm givin' you the warnin'
    Everybody's gonna have a wonderful time up there

    Well-a, well-a, well-a
    Everybody's gonna have religion and glory
    Everybody's gonna be a-singin' that story
    Everybody's gonna have a wonderful time up there
    Oh, glory hallelujah
    Brother, there's a reckonin' a-comin' in the mornin'
    Better get ready 'cause I'm givin' you the warnin'
    Everybody's gonna have a wonderful time up there


    And Xi will be singing Engelbert Humperdinck's - Please Release Me



    Please release me
    Let me go
    For I
    Don't love you anymore
    To waste our lives
    Would be a sin
    Release me
    And let me love again

    I have found
    A new love dear
    And I will always
    Want her near
    Her lips are warm
    While yours are cold
    Release me, my darling
    Let me go

    For I
    Don't love you anymore
    So release me
    And let me love again

    Please release me
    Can't you see
    You'd be a fool
    To cling to me
    To live a life
    Would bring us pain
    So release me
    And let me love again

    On return Sharif will sing this

    Some people say a man is made outta mud
    A poor man's made outta muscle and blood
    Muscle and blood and skin and bones
    A mind that's a-weak and a back that's strong

    You load sixteen tons, what do you get
    Another day older and deeper in debt
    Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
    I owe my soul to the company store

    I was born one mornin' when the sun didn't shine
    I picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine
    I loaded sixteen tons of number nine coal
    And the straw boss said "Well, a-bless my soul"

    You load sixteen tons, what do you get
    Another day older and deeper in debt
    Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
    I owe my soul to the company store

    I was born one mornin', it was drizzlin' rain
    Fightin' and trouble are my middle name
    I was raised in the canebrake by an ol' mama lion
    Cain't no-a high-toned woman make me walk the line

    You load sixteen tons, what do you get
    Another day older and deeper in debt
    Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
    I owe my soul to the company store

    If you see me comin', better step aside
    A lotta men didn't, a lotta men died
    One fist of iron, the other of steel
    If the right one don't a-get you
    Then the left one will

    You load sixteen tons, what do you get
    Another day older and deeper in debt
    Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
    I owe my soul to the company store

    Taller than mountains
    Deeper than oceans
    Longer than Great Wall
    Sweeter than honey
    More twisted than a bowl of noodles.....

    'tis truly heart warming.

    One is a nation almost over run by terrorists with daily bomb blasts, other denies basic freedoms to its citizens by use of an iron hand. Somehow, I can see them coming together. Its a natural fit for both parties.

    Also, transfer of military equipment at favorable credit terms to the client state also seems natural. Client state naturally describes the equipment as "modern , high tech and of good quality"

    All hunky dory in la-la land.

    Chini sweeter than honey!!


    Chini in Hindi is sugar for those who don't know. But then I also "respectfully" call Chinese as Chini
