    One of the best move by PM, actually we are a bit late but now direction is correct. We need to develop good relationship with central Asian countries, they are our natural allies. Apart from defense ties, better trading relationships can also be made. If we have a look on last few months of Pakistan’s activities in foreign relations, in fact India itself is isolated, but they are taunting Pakistan.Recommend

    Details of Prime Minister’s engagement clearly show that it would have been more than enough to send some ministers and officials on the tour, all traveling by schedule flights. This would have saved the country a huge bill and avoided the situation of ailing PIA inconveniencing its passengers again by having to spare a large aeroplane for the royal tour with dozens of attendants, and stay in pretigious hotels to make the visit worth the glory of a Monarch.
