Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan is going to release the country’s first national security policy on Friday. It is being told that in this confidential security policy, emphasis has been laid on not enmity with India for 100 years. At the same time, there is a mention of starting trade and business with India even before the final resolution of the Kashmir issue. Politics in Pakistan has become heated after some part of this security policy was leaked in the media.
Abdul Basit, the former ambassador of Pakistan to India, has made a big attack on the Imran Khan government by tweeting. Abdul Basit tweeted that whether Pakistan’s national security policy should suggest dialogue and trade with India, that too when India is not ready to compromise on Kashmir. I would like to say that this would be a big mistake. He said that this can weaken Pakistan’s Kashmir policy.
‘Building a comprehensive national consensus a real challenge’
Amidst the ongoing protests in Pakistan, Dawn newspaper’s noted writer Zahid Hussain said that it would be a real challenge for the Imran Khan government to build a comprehensive national consensus to implement this first security policy. Pakistan has made this national security policy from the year 2022 to 2026. It emphasizes on increasing two-way trade and investment with India and other neighboring countries. At the same time, emphasis has been laid on strengthening the economic security of Pakistan.
An official associated with the national security policy told the Pakistani newspaper Express Tribune, ‘We will not envy India for the next 100 years. This new policy emphasizes on peace with neighboring countries. He said that if there is dialogue and progress on this issue, then there is a possibility that trade and business relations with India can return to normal as before.
Bilateral trade on Kashmir suspended
The relations between India and Pakistan have come to a standstill after the end of the special status of Kashmir. Pakistan had cut diplomatic ties and suspended bilateral trade in response to India’s actions on Kashmir. In February last year, there was some progress towards normalization of relations between the two countries when both sides agreed to stop ceasefire violations along the LoC. However, this process could not go any further than this.
‘No chance of reconciliation with India under Modi government’
The Pakistani official also said that there is no possibility of reconciliation with India under the current Modi government in New Delhi. Pakistan PM Imran Khan will launch the new national security policy on Friday. Pakistan will make public only one part of its national security policy, the rest will be kept confidential. The Pakistan Army has played an important role in making this security policy. Meanwhile, it is believed that the opposition can create a ruckus on the new national security policy.
