PM Gilanis recent Visit to China has sent a strong message across the world. Out come of the visit is a ray of hope for the people of Pakistan. The mother of all problems facing our nation is the wrong direction of our foreign policy since 1949. Pakistan has been relying on the loans and aids from America. The loan and aid has only jeopardised our national interests. The Raymond Davis episode of Lahore and the foul play of Americans in Abbottabad have now proved that we should change the direction of our foreign policy. The latest visit of PM Gilani to China should be taken as an indicator to shift our foreign policy. Pakistan must publicly admit that Americans are not our friends. We must look towards the East.
