He also conveyed his best wishes to the Chinese leadership. In addition to Pakistan-China relations, the regional situation also came under discussion during the meeting. The Chinese vice foreign minister thanked the prime minister for the courtesy call and briefed him regarding various meetings held during the visit. 

He conveyed special greetings of the Chinese leadership to the prime minister. He said that China and Pakistan were "iron-brothers". He assured that China would always remain a reliable partner in Pakistan's socio-economic progress. 

Earlier in the day, Sun also met with General Syed Asim Munir, Chief of Army Staff, at the General Headquarters. 

The meeting involved discussions on matters of mutual interest and measures to further enhance bilateral defense cooperation between Pakistan and China, according to an Inter-Service Public Relations statement. 

During the meeting, the Chinese diplomat reiterated the strong and enduring nature of the strategic partnership between Pakistan and China and said that Pakistan and China are all-weather strategic partners. 

He acknowledged Pakistan's efforts in promoting regional peace and stability and expressed China's satisfaction with the security arrangements for the CPEC projects.
