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. Recently, an official associated with the national security policy had told the Pakistani newspaper Express Tribune, ‘We will not hate India for the next 100 years. This new policy emphasizes on peace with neighboring countries.

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.
Meanwhile, former Ambassador of Pakistan to India, Abdul Basit 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.
