Since the country’s founding, Pakistan’s national security priorities have been defined by the realities of its neighborhood—particularly ongoing conflict with India, an alliance with China, and chronic war in Afghanistan. Now, with a promising Afghan peace process, rising conflict between rival India and “all-weather friend” China, and the coronavirus pandemic, Pakistan’s national security neighborhood is evolving—and Pakistan’s national security approach will have to evolve with it.
Join USIP for a conversation with Dr. Moeed Yusuf, special assistant to Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan on national security and strategic policy planning and a member of Pakistan’s coronavirus response team. The discussion will look at what these developments mean for Pakistan’s national security outlook towards its neighbors and its relationship with the U.S., as well as how the pandemic impacts Pakistan’s security and economic policy.
