Pakistan leader of opposition Khursheed Shah on Wednesday questioned Islamabad’s foreign policy, asking Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif as to why his foreign policy is so weak. Shah, who was speaking at a joint session of the Pakistani Parliament to discuss the Indian aggression at the Line of Control (LoC) as well as the foreign policy matters after India had pledged to “isolate Pakistan”, said, “Why does Pakistan feel isolated at the international arena?” “Why is our foreign policy so weak, why are we lonely?” the Dawn quoted Shah as saying.

The senior Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader further said that they have to realise their mistakes and choose better path for the future. “Our policies have led to this stage, where Bangladesh is also against us,” he said. Speaking about India’s decision refusal to participate in the SAARC conference in Islamabad next month, Shah said that India have tried to isolate Pakistan diplomatically. “The SAARC conference is before you. Five countries refused to attend it.

We should have preempted such developments.” Apart from India, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Bhutan and Bangladesh have also expressed their inability to participate in the SAARC Summit to be held in Islamabad in November, following which Nepal postponed the meet. The relationship between the two estranged neighbours has plunged to a new low in recent times in the wake of Uri terror attack and the subsequent surgical strikes carried out by the Indian Army along the Line of Control (LoC).

      1. Why is stan feeling that it is getting isolated? One thing is very clear. stan's political parties and their leaders are united against India, as they firmly believe that without somehow keeping the Kashmir issue live, not one of them can survive in stan's politics. This is the reality which India knows. In a way, Kashmir is stani politicians’ survival kit. Let them hang on to it. 2. I believe the w democratic world will eventually realise that stan is a major State sponsor of terror. It is not that India is threatened by stani funded terror. Entire democratic world is threatened by terror and soon it will be clear that stan has some link or the other with terror attacks in all countries in Europe and even USA.
