Major powers dividing world into ‘us’ and ‘them’: Khar

STOCKHOLM:  Pakistan has called upon the international community to resolve the unresolved disputes and legitimate aspirations of developing countries for a more inclusive and representative world order. 

In her keynote address to the Annual Meeting of the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR), Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Hina Rabbani Khar lamented that “at a time when the world needed to confront modern challenges with a united front, it was presenting a picture of a house divided due to great power competition,” according to a press released issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA). 

Khar underscored that developing countries felt threatened by the global power contestation. “Instead of bringing the world together to meet common threats, the major powers were preoccupied with dividing the world into ‘us’ and ‘them’ in a race for political supremacy,” she is quoted to have said.

According to MoFA, the Annual Meeting of the ECFR provided an opportunity to present Pakistan’s perspective on the issues of regional and global importance and interact with a diverse group of European decision-makers, academics and influencers.
