Amidst the intricate geopolitical landscape influencing regional affairs, Islamabad's solidarity with Beijing highlights the significance of maintaining alignment within the broader framework of international relations.
Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif reiterated Islamabad's backing for China's position on Taiwan and its adherence to the 'One-China' policy on Sunday, emphasizing Taiwan's integral status within the People's Republic of China.

“As an iron brother and a strategic partner of China, Pakistan has always extended its principled support to the Chinese position on Taiwan and will continue to do so. Pakistan adheres to the ‘One-China’ policy, regards Taiwan as an inalienable part of the People’s Republic of China and supports the Chinese government’s efforts for national reunification. The so-called elections or transition of the self-proclaimed government in Taiwan do not change the objective facts on the Taiwan issue,” Sharif shared on X (formerly Twitter).

Pakistan's vocal backing of China's position on Taiwan comes amid escalating global tensions in the Taiwan Strait and increased diplomatic manoeuvres regarding the island's status.
Against the backdrop of complex geopolitical dynamics shaping regional affairs, Pakistan's reaffirmation of solidarity with China underscores the importance of alignment within the broader context of international relations.
On Friday, China responded to a US official's call for restraint over the cross-strait situation, warning that efforts to encourage "Taiwan's independence" are futile and will "backfire".

"There will be a dead-end for those who engage in 'Taiwan independence', and to connive support for 'Taiwan independence' will only backfire," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin stated at a media briefing.

Reports suggest that Sharif is scheduled to visit China during the first week of June to attend the official launch of the second phase of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.
It is anticipated that he will leave for China on June 4, with the possibility of minor adjustments in his schedule.
