In a concession to its “iron friend” Pakistan, China has thrown a much-needed diplomatic lifeline to Imran Khan that could help him ­rebound from a series of recent setbacks at the international stage.

Chinese President Xi Jinping emphasised their rapport during a meeting with the visiting Pakistani prime minister in Beijing on October 8. “No matter how the international and ­regional situation changes, the friendship ­between China and Pakistan has ­always been unbreakable and rock solid; our relationship has always maintained vitality,” he declared.
