Pakistan Agreement With Japan

President Muhammad Zia ul Haq visited Japan on July 17 and 22, 1983. In return, Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone visited Pakistan from April 30 to May 1984, the first visit by a Japanese minister in 23 years. His visit made it clear that Japan supported Pakistan`s policy towards Afghanistan. It was the revival of Cold War agreements. After the Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan in 1989, Japan focused more on Pakistan`s nuclear ambitions at a time when Pakistan was developing the “Look East policy” to emulate the example of Japan and other East Asian countries, to revive its economy after being severely destroyed during the war in Afghanistan. The Japanese idea of the “arc of security and freedom”, which hovered in 2006 in collaboration with India and Australia, a leap into India in the form of civil nuclear cooperation and the approval of a specific concession to India for the supply of nuclear power plants and parts to the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) in 2008, sent negative messages to Islamabad on the region`s growing Indo-Japanese axis. These developments have led to a paradigm shift in pakistan-Japan relations. The one-China policy continued to influence Pakistan`s relations with Japan and had an impact on the civil aviation agreement, with Japan not granting landing rights to Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) in the 1960s to fly from China. China supported pia`s proposed route, but Japan did not agree, apparently under pressure from the United States. Pakistan`s proposed civilian air route was actually a step towards a Sino-Japanese rapprochement that Japan did not like, which caused cracks in Japan-Pakistan relations and pushed Pakistan further towards China and repaired fences with Eastern Bloc countries affected by Cold War activities.

Since the establishment of diplomatic relations on 28 April 1952, relations between Pakistan and Japan have continued to evolve. Shortly after the San Francisco Peace Conference, Pakistan was one of the few countries to open its trade office in Japan. Similarly, Japan opened one of its first trade offices in Karachi. In 1952, Pakistan opened its embassy in Tokyo. Mr. Mian Ziauddin became Pakistan`s first ambassador to Japan. In the early 50s, Pakistan was an important destination for raw wool imports for Japan. During the Korean War and the Cold War, Pakistan and Japan were on the same side of the ditch. President Ayub Khan visited Japan in 1960.

In 1961, Prime Minister Ikes visited Pakistan. During the latter`s visit, the agreement was reached to launch two yen-credit and transfer student projects. As a result, 80 Pakistani students were transferred to Japan, mainly to Chiba University, where they gained Japanese language training and technology skills. .
