ISLAMABAD, August 30: Iran had re-modified its foreign policy from the celebrated slogan of ‘neither east, nor west’ to ‘both east and the west’, said Prof. DrLubna Asif, former Dean at National Defense University (NDU). She was addressing a roundtable conference, titled ‘Indo-Iran Relations: A Reset?’,organised by the Institute of Regional Studies (IRS), here on Tuesday. She said that Indo-Iran relations had been far from reset, due to the downward trajectory of their relations since 2017. Moreover, the relations of both countries had been gleaned upon geoeconomics, with hardly any geopolitical factors involved.
Ambassador Asif Durrani, Senior Research Fellow at Islamabad Policy Research Institute (IPRI), examined the Indo-Iran relations from the prism of cultural exchange. PR
