According to a new report, Pakistan has been facing many foreign policy challenges on multiple fronts since the beginning of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. The country has been facing strong opposition from Afghanistan, India and the US. Therefore the National Assembly has recently approved an agenda which dedicates 8% for the foreign security policy and the CPEC.
After the NA passed the agenda the lawmakers questioned about CPEC and particularly about the issues related to the security of this project. The key questions raised by the lawmakers were about the matters related to Pakistan’s relations with India on Kashmir issue and its relations with other Muslim States with reference to Middle East Disaster particularly with the US in the context of War on Terror.
The lawmakers also inquired about the performance of Pakistan’s Foreign Office in aiding the overseas Pakistani citizens particularly who are working in jails abroad as prisoners.
