Redesigning Pakistan's Foriegn Policy Major(R)Khalid Nasr Next two to three months are very crucial for redesigning Pakistan's foriegn policy.Pakistan will have to take firm stand regarding her relations with USA.After the so called restoration of democracy in Pakistan, the situation has become very fluid.Relations with China & Iran have to be strengthend as both these countries have a role to play in the region.US interference in Pakistan's internal affairs and violation of international boundry laws would increase but it would have to be strictly dealt with.India & Afghanistan would become more agressive in their response to the issues of common interest. Although, it would be very difficult for the government to handle the worsening situation on the diplomat front but a very proactive approach will have to be taken .The OIC has to play a very important role in the coming scenario.Muslim world would have to be united to counter the ill designs of both Israeel and USA .Iran would become a hub of the Islamic strength.Pakistan would be safe in case of a stronger Iran.Muslim countries would have to consider the option of United States of Islam.
