“The friendship has never been empty talks, but deeply imprinted in hearts of Chinese and Pakistani people,” Zhao said.
The Chinese people have volunteered to make donations for families of the two Sindh policemen and the injured private security guard Mohammed Juman, who is currently under treatment at Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Centre (JPMC), Karachi.
