Islamabad—Mr. Zahid Malik, Editor-in-Chief, Pakistan Observer, has praised Senator Sartaj Aziz, Advisor to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs, for having fully developed the art of exhibiting most appropriate words in conversation on sensitive subjects. He described Mr. Sartaj Aziz “as the senior most and respected seasoned statesman diplomat of today’s Pakistan.” Mr. Malik was particularly appreciative of the support the Advisor was extending to him regarding his China-related initiatives.
Mr. Zahid Malik, in his Address of Welcome, also paid his compliments to the Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan, H.E. Mr. Sun Weidong who, as he said, was striving hard to bring Pakistan and China still closer in all respects. He said that it was a happy co-incidence that at this point in time when the two countries are all set to take a quantum jump forward, Ambassador Sun was the Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan. Mr. Malik described the Ambassador “as a soft-spoken, humble, very articulate and a perfect gentleman Ambassador”.
