Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari dreams of a day when Chinese would travel to his country without the
need for passports, and allow Pakistanis to do so.
"I have a great dream that Chinese can travel to Pakistan without a passport and Pakistanis can travel to china
without passports," he said in an interview with the local television on Friday.
Pakistan also aspires to be the connecting route for flow of crude to China from destinations across the world, he
said. "We are looking at energy coming to China through us," he said.
Zardari's decision to publicly air his hopes and dreams, obviously after consultation with Chinese officials,
reflects his confidence about the success of his mission to the troubled province of Xinjiang bordering Pakistan.
