In particular, the textbook indicated that China is a friendly friend of Pakistan. "We have been educating children since childhood and the friendship between China and Pakistan is a long-standing test. It is a good friend and good neighbor of generations."

Rich or poor
China-Pakistan relations have not changed their tastes
Born in 1964, Yan Lijin was sent to work in Pakistan when he was young. He has been dealing with the Pakistani government for more than 20 years now. He was awarded the "Star of Excellence" Presidential Medal by former Pakistani President Zardari. Lu Yao knew the horsepower. He said: "China has gone from poor to rich, but the friendship and feelings of the two countries have never changed, and it is getting deeper and deeper."
Yan Lijin came to work in Pakistan in the early 1990s. At that time, China was not rich. The country has just implemented the policy of reform and opening up, and the development at home and abroad is very difficult. As shown in "China's Partners," people wear outdated outfits and keep the three-seven-seven-pointer that now looks very earthy.
Yan Lijin, who was stationed in the Pakistani capital, seemed to be a foreigner in the eyes of the Chinese at the time, and Islamabad was the feeling of a big foreign city. "At that time, I came to Pakistan and felt that their airport was so big. It was much larger than our capital airport. There were cars everywhere in the city. I was still thinking about 'when we can drive on the car.'" Yan Lijin’s salary was not Gao, I am not willing to spend in Pakistan. I always think about it: save money and bring it back to China.
When domestic resources were scarce, Pakistan’s sweaters, leather garments, even napkins and toothpastes became the rarity of “purchasing” in the country. "At that time, China did not have napkins, toothpaste or aluminum shells." But the friendship between China and Pakistan is very good. From the government to the people, no matter where they go, they can enjoy all kinds of extraordinary courtesy. The locals happily praise him. It is "Pakistan Pass", and he is called Pakistan's friend "Batie".
In 24 years, China’s changes have been overwhelming. For some reasons, “Pakistan has not changed much over the years”. However, the friendship between China and Pakistan has not changed its taste because the poor relatives have become rich. Yan Lijin said that the Pakistani people still call him "Pakistan Pass", and he still enthusiastically called them "Batie", which is not separated from each other.
