font size    

Pakistani Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz said Sunday that his country was pursuing an independent foreign policy and it would make every possible contribution for regional peace and security.

Addressing the nation after the flag hoisting ceremony in Islamabad on the occasion to celebrate Pakistan's 58th anniversary of independence from the British rule in 1947, Azia said a strong and stable Afghanistan was not only in the interests of Pakistan but also for the region and the world.

While emphasizing China was a strategic partner of Pakistan and Islamabad was striving to improve its relations with the United States and the European Union, Aziz said Look East was a new element in the country's foreign policy and Islamabad was giving new dimensions to its relations with countries like Malaysia, South Korea, Thailand and Singapore.

Aziz said Pakistan also attached great importance to its relations with the Muslim world and that with their active collaboration, it was formulating a strategy to address the challenges facing them.

On the recent successful test-firing of Babur cruise missile, Aziz told the nation that Pakistan's defense capability is a guarantee of peace and regional balance of power and the nation would provide all resources to strengthen this capability.

Referring to the Pak-Indo relations, Aziz said Pakistan was trying to promote friendship and cooperation with India with a view to address all their disputes.

He reiterated that solution of the Kashmir dispute was a must for durable peace in South Asia and that its resolution must reflect aspirations of the Kashmiri people.
