Pakistan pursuing policy of maintaining neutrality in regional conflicts

Islamabad, December 05, 2017 (PPI-OT):Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif has said Pakistan is in the process of revisiting its foreign policy keeping in view the changing global scenario. Addressing the SDPI conference in Islamabad, he negated the impression that Pakistan stands diplomatically isolated or marginalized. He said we have relatively improved our relations with Russia over the last few years while added new dimension to relationship with China. The foreign minister said Pakistan also tried its level best to give some meaning to relationship with India but the response from the other side was not encouraging.

He said we also maintained neutrality in the regional conflicts. Referring to China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, the foreign minister said the fruit of the mega project has started to pour in. He pointed out that sixty five percent of the feeders have been declared load shedding free while road and rail infrastructure has also been upgraded under the CPEC. The foreign minister said Pakistan has genuine stakes in Afghan peace and stability as our access to the Central Asian states and beyond will not be possible without peace and tranquillity in Afghanistan.
