Prime Minister Imran Khan said economic diplomacy will now be at the heart of Pakistan’s foreign affairs.

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan launched the country’s first-ever national security policy.

It seeks to shift the focus from the military to a citizen-centric framework and aims to have economic security at its core.

Khan said Pakistan has been in dire need of a strategy to ensure its people are protected and economic interests are defended.

Opposition parties have criticised the government for not including them in the process.

So how will the Prime Minister implement this policy?
