Abstract

This paper explores the relationship of Pakistan with China and Russia and looks into the new opportunities for Pakistan if these relationships are more developed. New Silk Route has provided Pakistan with opportunities to enhance cooperation with China and Russia regarding energy, economic and security requirements. SCO can be a good platform for Pakistan. Pakistan has changed its approach from pure realism to neo-liberalism in its policies vis-à-vis China and Russia. This Silk Route is providing Pakistan with new foreign policy options and it is tilting towards Asian Block. Pakistan by joining this China and tilting towards Russia can counter India and its influence in Afghanistan. The joining of China and Russia by Pakistan is not only in the benefit of Pakistan but also for them as they need us more than we need them. At the end few policy decisions will be discussed, that Pakistan can take in near future.
