ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif on Tuesday said Pakistan’s foreign policy has for long remained US-centric, however, the time had come to review the policy and shift its focus towards Russia and China.

The foreign minister highlighted the possibility of a policy shift and said revisiting the Islamabad’s policy was the need of the hour. The minister hinted at an inclination towards the left block of the world, saying, “China lives next to us and we have a common wall. Russia can also be our good friend.”

Asif said this while addressing a seminar hosted by the Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI) in the federal capital. “We can’t have an independent foreign policy until we are economically strong,” the minister maintained.
