  4. National Security Policy of Pakistan (2022-2026)

On 14 January, the Government of Pakistan published the public version of the country’s first-ever National Security Policy document. This is a 50-page document meant for the public while the complete 110-page document would still remain classified. The document has identified a number of areas, each of which has been included with opportunities and challenges and the policy initiative of the Government for overcoming the same.

Defence and Territorial Integrity

This section in the document makes a note of conventional military threats faced by the country due to the current Indian government’s aggressive policies and intentions along with the need to secure borders, ensuring freedom of navigating in international waters, its intention of investing in space-based technology, the risk with cyber security and hybrid warfare threats. The policy objectives of the State of Pakistan continue to be to maintain territorial integrity, ensure the military has the capability to deter any external threat, improve its existing space-based technology and augment cyber security competencies.

The National Security Policy document aims to bridge the gap in approaching traditional and non-traditional security threats by bringing it all under one umbrella so that a comprehensive security policy could be designed for the country. Nevertheless, this ambitious effort of Pak PM Imran Khan like his other policies has faced criticism from the opposition for not being consulted. The central focus on improving economic security is quite visible and clear from the document and it remains to be seen how the current government manages to implement the envisioned policy objectives in its remaining term.*
