It appears that Pakistan is losing friends fast. This is all because of their inherent and inbuilt contradictions, search of identity mired with confusion (Arab or native, Shia or Sunni, leader of the Islamic pack or not etc etc) and playing fast and loose with all concerned. They may find solace that China appears to be their friend, but the truth is that China is clear about its priority and national interests and if things go against China's national interest, it will not hesitate to drop Pakistan as a hot potato. Many Pakistani commentators have expressed the same opinion on their TV shows. Till now, Nawaz Sharif kept India in a blow hot, blow cold mode with the Gai fond Manmohan, but Modi seems to have cold shouldered him so much so he laments that India rejects push for better ties. Thereby, the only avenue Pakistan had to keep itself credible and in the news seems to have vanished.
