Sharif said Pakistan wants to promote peaceful and friendly relations with international community, particularly with its neighbours to ensure peace and progress in the region, Pakistani media reported.

Addressing a function marking the inauguration of a new block of the foreign office building in Islamabad, Sharif said Pakistan is playing its due role in promoting regional and international peace and enhancing mutual cooperation through its Foreign Office.

The Prime Minister said the new government is focusing on a four-point agenda, which includes weeding out terrorism, revival of economy, overcoming energy crisis and promoting trade at international level instead of getting aid.

"We are committed to further expanding our strategic ties with China and rebuilding relations with US on the basis of mutual respect and equality besides further strengthening ties with Islamic countries," he said.
