China is one of Pakistan's closest allies, and the Asian superpower today pledged to continue helping Mr Khan.

President Xi told PM Khan that he valued both countries' relations, and reaffirmed their "all-weather" friendship.

Prior to his visit to China, Khan has already traveled to five other countries, an unprecedented move for a Pakistani leader.

Earlier Chinese state councillor and foreign minister Wang Yi, told Pakistani foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi in a separate meeting that China would not let Pakistan down.

Khan is due to meet President Xi Jinping and attend the China International Import Expo in Shanghai.

"Pakistan looks forward to strengthening its cooperation with the AIIB", he said, informing the AIIB president that his government has prioritized economic revival and structural reforms.

$1.5 billion are expected to be deposited in the State Bank of Pakistan, while Pakistan Railways may also be included in the package.

"After taking monetary and fiscal measures, in my opinion, our financing gap for this year will be around $12 billion", he said.

Pakistan's foreign reserves have plunged 42 percent since the start of the year and now stand at about $7.8 billion, or less than two months of import cover.

Xi appreciated Khan for repeatedly stressing that he would view the relations with China as a political cornerstone in Pakistan's foreign policy and would unswervingly promote the construction of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

Pakistan admires China's development achievements and hopes to learn from China's experience in development, poverty alleviation and anti-corruption, Khan said.

According to reports from Pakistan, the new bus service will be launched between Lahore in Pakistan and Kashgar in China via PaK on November 3.

The minister said: "Cooperation in agriculture and security realm will be part of our discussion with the Chinese leadership".

While Commerce Minister Dawood told the Financial Times that some of the CPEC agreements were unfair to Pakistani companies and should be put on hold for a year, Railways Minister Rasheed said that Pakistan wants to cut the size of the Dollars 8 billion Karachi-Peshawar rail line, the biggest project of the CPEC, by USD 2 billion. The trip "is significant for President Xi Jinping, whose flagship BRI has had hiccups in recent months".

The CPEC has also become a major irritant in India-China relations with New Delhi voicing its opposition to the infrastructure project as it traverses through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).

While that has yet to happen, the sides have begun reassessing some aspects of the Pakistan section of Belt and Road, known as the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, including scaling back the development of Pakistan's Arabian Sea port of Gwadar.

In an interview to the Chinese state-run media ahead of his visit, Khan said the CPEC has given Pakistan a great opportunity to bring in foreign investment and to get out of the hard economic situation it is facing.
