Pakistan will do its best to ensure that the Beijing Olympic Games torch relay in Pakistan is a success, said Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf on Friday.

During talks with Chinese President Hu Jintao in this southern city of Hainan Province, Musharraf said Pakistan hopes and believes that the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games will achieve success and Pakistan is willing to provide support and cooperation.

Pakistan firmly opposes any attempt to politicize the Beijing Olympic Games and any actions to disrupt the event, Musharraf said.

The Olympic torch relay ceremony is to be held in Islamabad, Pakistan, on April 16. Musharraf said he would take part in the ceremony in an interview with Xinhua prior to his China visit.

Musharraf also expressed Pakistan's firm support for China to maintain national unity. He said Pakistan regards Tibet as an inalienable part of Chinese territory and firmly opposes any actions to split China.

Pakistan will strengthen cooperation with China in fighting against terrorist and extremist forces.

Musharraf arrived here on Thursday for a state visit at Hu's invitation. During his visit to Hainan, Musharraf will also attend the annual meeting of the Boao Forum for Asia (BFA), due to open on Saturday afternoon in Boao, which is also in Hainan Province.
