The two art exhibitions jointly organized by China World Peace Foundation and the Embassy of Pakistan in Beijing this year have extensive influence across the international community by presenting a classic example of cooperation in politics and economy between the two countries. The Belt and Road China-Pakistan Cultural Corridor we launched today, while symbolizing a deepening friendly ties between us, will also usher in a new era. The charisma of culture and art and the cooperation between the artists will contribute to world peace; it will also serve as reflection the Peace Garden Declaration we released here in the past June along with UNESCO when we officially initiated an interactive culture atlas of cultural interactions along the Silk Roads.
