Islamabad, April 1: China's President Xi Jinping is likely to visit Pakistan this month, media reported Wednesday.
More than two dozen memoranda of understanding (MOUs) regarding nuclear power, the Gwadar Port, the Pak-China Economic Corridor (PCEC), energy, trade and investment will be signed during his visit, Dawn online reported citing sources.
He is likely to address a joint session of parliament during the visit. However, the Pakistan foreign office is yet to make formal announcement regarding his visit.
Pakistan has been looking forward to Xi's visit for the last ten months, but at least two scheduled visits have been postponed during the period.
Xi was scheduled to go to Pakistan last year, but the trip was postponed due to anti-government protests in Pakistan.
Sources say the president is expected to share China's plans for the future of Pak-China friendship with members of parliament.
This will be President Xi's first visit to Pakistan as head of state, and the first visit by a Chinese president in nine years.
Last year, Xi visited India, Sri Lanka and the Maldives.
