While watching the military exercises between Pakistan and China, General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani said Pakistan and China had no differences over matters of security.

Pakistan’s Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Kayani said that military cooperation between Pakistan and China was not aimed against any country.

He further said that Pakistan and China’s army relations were not based on aggression against a particular country.

Not only do the countries have strong diplomatic ties but relations at the people-to-people level are also sound, Kayani said.

Pakistan and China have had a close military relationship in recent years.

I personally believe that Pakistan seeks a close military relationship with China so it can use China as an ally, in the event of hostilities between itself and neighboring India -- two countries that have been perpetual enemies for many years.
