Imran Khan needs to create second-thought
Karachi: Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari apart of his political rancor with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf’s policies and three and a half years government tenure misdoings has sincerely advocated former Prime Minister Imran Khan’s official visit to Russia. This statement shows Bilawal’s growing political wisdom as well as essence of to understand international relations mythology and its importance in today’s world.
This statement has brought Bilawal’s stature as a political figure to new heights besides his sight for international relations.
In New York on his visit to US, defending former Prime Minister Imran Khan’s visit to Russia at a press briefing and saying that visit was in accordance with foreign policy of Pakistan puts Bilawal in sphere of ‘gentleman’.
Now it is time to Imran Khan to rethink about Bilawal as a political man and impartiality from being bias of a powerful political opponent, political analysts are in opinion.
Bilawal during press briefing said, “As far as former Prime Minister Imran Khan’s trip to Russia, I would absolutely defend former prime minister.” He conducted that trip as part of his foreign policy and without knowing that no one is psychic, “No one has a sixth sense there’s no way we could have possibly known that that would be time when current conflict will start. “
In addition Bilawal said that it is very unfair to punish Pakistan for such an innocent action.
In March, Pakistan had abstained from voting in United Nations General Assembly resolution calling on Russia to stop war and urged that conflict be resolved through dialogue and diplomacy.
We are not part of any conflict. We do not wish to be part of any conflict. In fact, we continue to emphasise on importance of dialogue and diplomacy to resolve this conflict as soon as possible. And we will certainly not take any side or take side of aggressor within this context, Bilawal said. This narrative shows Bilawal’s astute thinking and belief in ‘straightforwardness’.
