The Prime Minister pointed out that “Pakistan’s main aim is that we do not want to be aligning with any country where we have to fight someone else’s war. This only leads to great suffering. As a frontline state, we lost more than we gained. The impact on our society has not been analyzed, especially its negative fallout. The war on terror was a disaster for Pakistan. Now, we will only be a bridge builder and reconciliator.”He applauded China’s diplomacy and said “China’s way of running their foreign policy is far superior since at no time did they commit to anyone else’s war.”
