Qureshi says Pakistan’s focus has shifted to geo-economics

A violent and obscene cyberspace attack by Indian citizens attempted but failed to disrupt a webinar organized by the Karachi Council on Foreign Relations (KCFR).

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi was the principal speaker. He said Indian leaders had spoken openly of their readiness to use armed action against Pakistan. Nothing in a nuclear world would be even more reckless. Though Pakistan will continue to work for peace in the region with the US, our relationship must be broader. The arrival of a new administration in Washington gives us the ability to have a long-term, broad-based, and multidimensional relationship. An institutionalized and systemic commitment that is focused on mutual interest would be needed for such a collaboration. On its own merits and its own weight, [there should be] a good US-Pak alliance. Because of geo economics, it is convincing. We’re stuck at a crossroads between China and South and Central Asia.
