A celebration of the Pakistan National Defense Day was held in the Pakistani Embassy in Beijing on Sept. 12.

People of all walks of life including those from China's People's Liberation Army (PLA), diplomatic circles, think tanks, media as well as Pakistani community members attended the commemoration.

While reviewing the past glory of the Pakistani armed forces, Masood Khalid, the Pakistani ambassador to China, also lauded the country's continued efforts in the fight against terrorism.

"China and Pakistan are all-weather strategic cooperative partners and have a shared agenda of promoting peace and stability in our region," Khalid said.

He hoped that the two countries can further forge connectivity and inter-civilization linkages while contributing to China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and the Belt and Road Initiative.

Pakistan's National Defense Day, which falls on Sept. 6, is in memory of the sacrifices made by the country's armed forces in defending their motherland and thwarting aggressive attacks.
