Seems like preparations before PM's visit to China. COAS met as well and so all other Chiefs of Services. This is how the visit has to be fruitful from all aspects like Military to Economy to Diplomacy.

Not the no more but progress to be made in regard to future/decade to come. You start today and so you can achieve goals per targeted time line. It is said the ground work is already done and much of study/cooperation/MOUs are there being signed with friendly/brotherly country. The next step is to pave way with practical & on ground activity to make it reality.
