Islamabad (Web Desk): Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday congratulated President Xi Jinping and the government for “eradicating extreme poverty” in China.

“I want to congratulate President Xi Jinping & the Chinese govt for the momentous achievement of eradicating extreme poverty in their country,” said PM Imran in a series of tweets.

“Never before in history have 750 million people been taken out of extreme poverty in a span of 35 years,” the premier added.

“For developing countries like Pakistan there are lessons to be learnt. With determination and commitment we can do the same for our people,” he maintained.

To mark a signature initiative of his eight-year tenure, Chinese President Xi Jinping had announced “complete victory” in the effort to eradicate rural poverty at a ceremony in Beijing last week.
