#Chinese president Xi Jinping not to visit Pakistan now

In view of the current political situation in Pakistan it’s Foreign Office, in a statement, confirmed on Saturday that Chinese president Xi Jinping, who was scheduled to visit Pakistan later this month, has postponed the trip because of security concerns.

Protest leaders Tahirul Qadri and Imran Khan laid the blame for the postponement squarely on the government. “If the government can’t provide security to its own people, how can it provide security to the Chinese president?” Qadri had said in a speech on September 4.
