    A political U-turn

    Please, check if the sentence below is grammatically correct. Thanks!

    This state has radically changed its approach not just toward us. Evidently, we are talking about a state which has made a political U-turn.

    The first sentence feels as if there is something missing.

    This state has radically changed its approach, not just toward(s) us but also towards others.

    This state has radically changed its approach - and not just toward(s) us.
