Abstract

The objective of this research is to investigate the soft power capabilities of Pakistan, with a particular focus on how these capabilities might enhance its diplomatic ties with neighbouring nations in the region. Pakistan holds significant geopolitical importance within the region; nevertheless, it has not prioritised the cultivation of strong diplomatic ties with neighbouring nations. Diplomatic isolation results as a consequence of this outcome. It cannot progress alone without the other regional countries. Qualitative research methodologies are utilised. Pakistan has to consider the concerns expressed by neighbouring countries in order to initiate positive diplomatic ties. Pakistan is deeply connected to the region both culturally and religiously, and it has the potential to strengthen these links through many means like regional connectivity, cultural exchange programmes, and trade. Encouraging people-to-people interaction programs can build up the ties between the nations.
