Pakistan and South Korea are enjoying exemplary bilateral relations since the 1980s. “The relations between two Asian states have been improved and periodically enhanced in many sectors of mutual interest. Terrorism is an international threat across the globe but we will synergize our energies to enhance the trade between Pakistan and South Korea. This will augments our plans for peacebuilding in the region”. These views were expressed by H. E. Suh Sangpyo Ambassador of Korea in Pakistan at the seminar on “Emergence of New Terror Threats and Regional Plans for Peacebuilding” organized by Pakistan Council on Foreign Relations-PCFR at Karachi. Mr. Ahsan Mukhtar Zuberi Secretary General PCFR presented the welcome address and lauded the achievements and future prospects of PCFR. Former Ambassador Shahid Amin, Chairman PCFR said that Terrorism is a global phenomena but here every terrorist activity is linked to the Muslims which is a false narrative which plays a critical role in propagating false ideologies. Dr. Moonis Ahmer, former Dean Faculty of Social sciences, University of Karachi expressed that “Terrorists manipulate fear through the use of violence to achieve their objective. Terrorism aims to create terror, a feeling of insecurity and an idea that leaders can no longer protect those they lead”. He further said that Terrorism alters economic behavior, primarily by changing investment and consumption patterns as well as diverting public and private resources away from productive activities and towards protective measures. Former Ambassador Alam Brohi Co-Chairman PCFR also spoke on the importance of peacebuilding in the region for the betterment of humankind. Secretary General & Chairman PCFR presented the memento to the Korean Ambassador and members of his delegation. The event was concluded with the vote of thanks by Ambassador Hassan Habib. The event was hosted by Saqib Salim.
