- Pakistan needs to proactively devise mechanisms to gear up with the transforming international political order.
- A foreign policy with an exemption of even one great power may lead the state back to the Cold War dynamics. Pakistan might find itself walking the tightrope between its geo-strategic interests with the U.S. against its geo-economic interests with China.
- Pakistan’s future partnership with any of the great powers must not compromise its strategic autonomy.
- Pakistan’s foreign policy outlook on international forums has remained rather coherent since the new government has assumed office.

- Pakistan has seen a significant increase in its “diplomatic influence” in Asia as well as an improvement of ties with its western neighbour.
