Xi's book offers insight into governance

Third, Xi's such an important thought gives consideration to both the actual situation now and the future, and offers the greatest common divisor for the values and interests of countries across the world. Human destiny should be jointly mastered and international rules should be jointly made by all countries. Mutual communication, mutual reference, co-building and sharing remain a general trend and a common aspiration of the people.

The concept of "building a human community of shared destiny", put forward by President Xi, which is based on China but also targeted at the world, accords with humankind's common interests and represents a common value, and thus will inevitably push human society to march toward a new high of civilizations.

What I want to point out here is that, over the more than two years since the first publication of Xi Jinping: The Governance of China, President Xi has also made a series of other important remarks. In the latter half of this year, the 19th National Congress of the CPC is due to be held, and after that we will make scientific generalizations of his new thoughts on China's governance and share these ideological fruits with our Pakistani friends.

The great Pakistani people celebrated their 78th National Day not long ago, and a Chinese People's Liberation Army military guard of honor was invited to attend the parade, which Chinese media lavishly covered.

Pakistan is China's good friend, good neighbor and good brother. It is an important part of the Belt and Road Initiative and a preferred cooperative partner of China. The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor is a major forerunner project and also a flagship project of the Belt and Road Initiative that has directly created more than 10,000 jobs. It is believed that, through our concerted efforts and common hard work, a more beautiful and more prosperous Pakistan will emerge in the world.

As early as the 1970s, a Pakistani film about a love story was shown in the cinemas across China, and a lot of Chinese were moved by the tale, its inspiring theme song still resounds in our hearts. Before my visit to Pakistan, I specially spent some time watching the film and still felt very excited. It has further deepened my good feelings toward Pakistani people. "If two peoples are of the same mind, their sharpness can cut through metal", as an old Chinese proverb goes.

The building of a human community of shared destiny is inseparable from the building of a China-Pakistan community of shared destiny. As long as Chinese and Pakistani people continuously deepen their brotherhood, give full play to their advantages, support each other and pursue common development, we are sure to have a more charming, more magnificent China-Pakistan relationship to build the human community of shared destiny, and make larger contributions to human civilizations. This, I think, is a common enlightenment that Xi Jinping: The Governance of China brings us.

The author is the minister of State Council Information Office. The article is an excerpt from the speech he delivered at the launch ceremony of the Urdu version of Xi Jinping: The Governance of China in Islamabad, Pakistan, on April 14.
