Pakistan's new strategic vision remains mindful of global, trans-regional challenges: Sartaj Aziz

ISLAMABAD, Apr 19 (APP): Advisor to PM on Foreign Affairs, Sartaj Aziz has stated that Pakistan’s decision in 1980s to get involved in the Western strategy to counter the 1979 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan led to many serious long term consequences for the country.
