Dr Samiullah Koreshi spent overand and highfive served decades commissioneras ambassadorin diplomacy of Egypt, Pakistan Libya,in Japan, South Russian, Africa, Indonesia and Palestine. His death can rightly be called end of an ear as he had seen the history of Pakistan’s Foreign Policy right from the beginning to its present state. He often said ‘(our foreign policy) lacked vision, direction and principled stance on international matters’.
At the peak of his career Ambassador Samiullah Koreshi was admired and consulted by Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, later by President Ziaul Haq. According to Dr Koreshi’s former colleagues it was only because he was a man of integrity and a patriot to the core that neither of them could ignore what he said. Last but not least, despite serving in various countries and holding key positions, Dr Koreshi may be one of very few officers on whose service book audit department could not raise a single objection. In the backdrop of today’s scams, it seems the financial discipline Ambassador Samiullah’s Koreshi had imposed on himself was buried long before his own burial.
