Shifting Power Balance
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.
