Foreign OfficeThe Foreign Office of Pakistan has declined to comment on the news published in the American newspaper Washington Post about sensitive information based on the conversation between Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif and Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Hina Rabbani Khar.
The Washington Post published a story on the leak of two alleged sensitive documents about Pakistan’s strategy towards Ukraine, Russia and China.
The leaked documents contain talks between Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Russia and Ukraine voting at the United Nations and Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Hina Rabbani on Pakistan’s strategy towards China.
According to the American newspaper Washington Post, the conversation of Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif is related to the voting in the United Nations on the Russia-Ukraine conflict on February 17 this year, in which an aide advised Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif that “with the support of the resolution, Pakistan Trade and energy agreements with Russia may be in jeopardy and support for the resolution will give the impression of a change in Pakistan’s position.
According to the Washington Post, Pakistan was among the 32 countries that abstained when the United Nations voted on “condemning Russia’s aggression against Ukraine” on February 23.
leaked documents, in March this year, Hina Rabbani Khar had said that “Pakistan should avoid pleasing the West.” Pakistan’s desire to maintain a strategic partnership with the US will sacrifice the full benefits of the original strategic partnership with China.
Aqil Nadeem says that it seems that this memo was given to the Prime Minister’s Office in the form of a summary.
Summaries are not made by the minister himself but by the respective secretaries. He might have given this advice. If such documents pass through various government offices, there may be a chance of leakage.
He says that if this document is authentic, it is welcome for China. Their doubts will disappear that China’s relations are important for Pakistan and Pakistan is not seeing it in the context of America.
