KARACHI - Provincial Advisor Haleem Adil Shaikh has said that Pakistan cannot live in isolation having weak economic conditions.
He said this while talking to a delegation of PML (Q) from Lahore at the provincial secretariat of Muslim League here Tuesday. He said that foreign policies are made on the basis of country’s interests and political considerations and countries take decision on the basis of give and take. Shaikh noted that USA had already sustained damage because of its rigidness and inflexible attitude of not seeking apology for attack on Salalah check post. If US can seek apology which is acceptable to Pakistan, it can work. However, we need to seek assurances from the USA that similar incident would not be repeated in future, he added.
He was of the view that NATO does not only involve US, but other European countries are part of NATO forces. Shaikh said that Pakistan needs to improve its economic conditions and therefore it should adopt a soft attitude to improve relations with the outside world.
