Dr. Talat Wazarat (IR Expert):
Pakistan and Japan have good bilateral relations. Japan has an automobile plant in Pakistan. Pakistanis are mainly engaged in the automobile sector. They carry out the business of exporting cars to different countries. Pakistani community is not parasitical. Not only do they earn money from Japan and send it to their country but they also help Japan to earn foreign exchange, which plays a momentous role in the economy of the country. There are convergences and divergences of the bilateral and multilateral relations between Japan and Pakistan. Divergence includes Pakistan’s nuclear and missile program, China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and Japan’s desire of having permanent membership of the United Nations Security Council etc.
