ISLAMABAD, Apr 24 (APP): Resolution of Kashmir dispute and forging closer relations with Afghanistan have remained the priorities in Pakistan’s foreign policy since independence, for the sake of freeing the Sub-Continent from arms race and realizing the goal of socio-economic development of this heavily-populated region.

The successive Pakistani governments, especially the incumbent one, has made concrete efforts to normalize relations with India, albeit without giving up this country’s decade-old stance on Kashmir.

Before the PML-N government came into power, Pakistan’s ties with its immediate neighbors witnessed historic lows, but the Prime Minister immediately sent a message of peace and cooperation to all of its immediate neighbors – Afghanistan, Iran and India.
