China is likely to host Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan just days before the communist country's president Xi Jinping's proposed visit to India. Khan will visit Beijing primarily to attend China-Pakistan Business Forum on October 8. He is also expected to meet Xi and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang. What adds to the significance of his tour to Beijing is that China, which has been persistently echoing Pakistan in opposing India's recent decisions on Jammu and Kashmir (J&K), is hosting him just days before Chinese President is likely to visit India to hold the second “informal summit” with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
