Islamabad: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said on Tuesday that as the current strategic competition among global powers escalates, undermines world peace and makes diplomacy unpredictable, Pakistan has shifted its focus From geopolitics to geoeconomics.

“This has made economic diplomacy all the more important,” he said while speaking at the Margalla Dialogue Forum 2021 – Foreign Policy Challenges of the Future in a Changing Geopolitical Landscape, organised by the Islamabad Policy Research Institute (IPRI).

In his address, the FM spoke at length on various issues concerning Pakistan’s foreign policy and diplomacy, including the humanitarian situation in Afghanistan, bilateral relations with China, the United States, Russia, and India, as well as the importance of a just resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute for regional peace.
