Uzbekistan’s support to Pakistan’s narrative on various regional issues carries huge significance

Dr Huma Baqai (Expert on International Relations): There is a huge potential of enhancing bilateral and economic relations among the Central Asian countries. Prime Minister Imran Khan’s visit to Uzbekistan is aimed at enhancing the bilateral economic relations and discussing post withdrawal situation in Afghanistan with the Uzbek leadership. During the visit, highly significant MoUs have been signed to further strengthen bilateral ties. Regional connectivity has great significance for all the regional countries. Uzbekistan is a Muslim nation and it is expected that the country’s leadership would help strengthen Pakistan's narrative at International front. Uzbekistan’s support to Pakistan’s narrative on various regional issues carries huge significance. Pakistan has taken some bold decisions regarding Afghanistan and drew a red line. Pakistan can only facilitate Afghan peace and we would not become part of any conflict. Islamabad is committed to cooperate with Afghanistan for promoting peace; however Pakistan would not tolerate any blame game. The global community should recognize that Pakistan has paid a huge price for regional peace and stability.
