The ambassador looked back on his work and life in China and forward to how he intends to lead his delegation in working closely with China in his new post as Pakistan's permanent representative to the United Nations. He also expressed his expectations for the upcoming 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China which is set to convene next Thursday.

In his entire career as a diplomat, Khan has worked in China twice: First as the Third Secretary in the Embassy from 1984 to 1986 and then as the Pakistan Ambassador to China, starting in September 2008. He first came to China in 1982 for a year and a half-long Chinese language course at the Beijing Language Institute.
