Shift­ing Power Bal­ance

Southasia - - EDITOR’S MAIL - Ab­dul Hameed, Karachi, Pak­istan.

This is with ref­er­ence to last month’s cover story on the cur­rent geopo­lit­i­cal po­si­tion of Pak­istan in re­la­tion to the in­ter­na­tional iso­la­tion loom­ing over the coun­try. I be­lieve the over­hyped threats of iso­la­tion in the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity have helped Pak­istan move faster to im­prove its over­all stand­ing in the world. De­spite the fact that the present gov­ern­ment is not as proac­tive when it comes to por­tray­ing a favourable im­age of the coun­try, the chang­ing geopo­lit­i­cal en­vi­ron­ment in the re­gion and in­ter­na­tional arena favours Pak­istan more than ever. The bal­ance of power is shift­ing in the world, open­ing a new room for the coun­try to amend its pre­vi­ous de­ci­sions and set new pri­or­i­ties as a truly peace-lov­ing and demo­cratic coun­try. En­cir­cled by im­mi­nent world pow­ers, Pak­istan is well-sur­rounded, leav­ing the fear of iso­la­tion be­hind.
