Witnessed by Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan in Beijing on Tuesday, Gu Yucai, deputy director of China's National Cultural Heritage Administration, and Naghmana Alamgir Hashmi, Ambassador of Pakistan to China, signed agreements to step up cooperation and exchanges concerning the protection of cultural relics. 

In May, Chinese President Xi Jinping pointed out in his keynote speech at the Conference on Dialogue of Asian Civilizations (CDAC), China would be glad to work with other Asian countries to protect the cultural heritage of the region, which will provide a solid foundation for the inheritance of civilizations. 

The agreements encourage cooperation and exchanges between China and Pakistan in various aspects, such as the preservation of cultural heritage, archaeological research, personnel training, academic research and the prevention of ancient cultural relic smuggling.
