Bilawal’s “foreign relations” agenda

Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto has formed a 10-member Foreign Relations Committee with former federal minister Senator Sherry Rehman as its convener.

Senator Farhatullah Babar, Hina Rabbani Khar, Saleem Mandviwala, Faisal Karim Kundi, Fauzia Habib, Matloob Inquilabi, Palwasha Khan, Imran Nadeem, Senator Fateh Muhammed Hasni will be the members of the committee.

Notification in this regard was issued from the Chairman Secretariat by his Political Secretary Jameel Ahmed Soomro. Senator Sherry Rehman said that the PPP has always had the most robust and clear foreign policy for Pakistan.

From Zulfikar Ali Bhutto to Benazir Bhutto and Asif Ali Zardari’s government to today, to Chairman Bilawal, the PPP has clear views on policy, he said. “We have articulated the best interests of Pakistan, both at home and abroad,” she said.

From the nuclear deterrent to missile capability, and making the China opportunity real via giving Gwadar port handling to the People’s Republic by (then) president Zardari, the party has taken seminal initiatives for safeguarding the borders, integrity and sovereignty of Pakistan, she said.

“We are the only party that envisions peace for Pakistan both at home and abroad in real and meaningful terms. The committee is an important body of the party and I look forward to working with the leadership and my colleagues on framing national responses to present and upcoming challenges,” Sherry said.
