1. Let me repeat. Trade between border nations will take place with or without SAARC. SAARC does not bring anything extra on the table for now.

2. Removal of Trader barriers is part of WTO agreements. Not SAARC.

SAARC has its limited value. No one is disputing that. It allows for ministers and secretaries to meet and iron our policy issues and trade issues.

It is easier than WTO, but nothing that would not have happened anyway.

You have given huge amount of junk data, not information. Know the difference.

1. I said "suspend" not Remove. A suspension is temporary. They have been suspended from the common wealth earlier.

2. Any constitution can be changed and India has to find a way to suspend pakistan from SAARC.

3. The idea is not to give them a "choice" to stay or leave, but to take away their choice.
1. Suspension is not within the constitution of the SAARC, therefore Pakistan can not be suspended.
2. Changing the constitution needs unanimous approval, ie it requires Pakistan to accept the changes. As this is unlikely the constitution can not be changed.
3. The "choice" can not be taken away from a member, India can choose to leave the SAARC as any other member can.

Therefore only way to isolate Pakistan from SAARC is if all other SAARC nations agree to close the organisation and start a new organisation with a new constitution.

You have just made an excellent case for the demise of SAARC and a new organisation to come up in its place.

Then you should. That would be best for you.

You can only see the "demise" of SAARC if ALL the members agree, but each nation is free to leave.

I would not mind seeing the end of SAARC as it has very little use. It is only there to provide a forum for ministers and heads of state to waste scarce resources chatting with little to no results. As for replacing it with another useless organisation is again waste of resources, I would much prefer Bangladesh to work with growing and effective institutes like ASEAN or work bilaterally with other countries like the recent work with China.

Lol on the article.


India is both predictable and thinks far too highly of itself.

Its ambition to be a supa pawa and insert itself amongst world powers whilst not being able to deal with a neighbour seven times smaller than it is comical

Why dont you simply say that , you are totally cornered in your own region!! The seven times smaller neighbor can be destroyed in a year, but why should we do that? India is not an imperialist country, if was than there would not be any BD, Bhutan, Nepal, SL etc etc.

lol.... if India leaves, SAARC is dead.

Rest of your post is just repeating what I have said.

As for ASEAN, BD has repeatedly asked to be invited in, but they have repeatedly REFUSED entry to BD. However India like China has observer status.

We are killing SAARC. And in SAARC members, no one apart from Pakistan wants Pakistan there.

Look how days after nobody came to Islamabad, they ALL came to Delhi for the BIMSTEC meet. That alone gives a clear message.

BIMSTEC is the new SAARC. It has all the members of SAARC minus Pakistan, Afghanistan.

Afghanistan will be incorporated either in BIMSTEC or International North-South Corridor along with Iran.

End result is - BIMSTEC is the new SAARC.


Therefore only way to isolate Pakistan from SAARC is if all other SAARC nations agree to close the organisation and start a new organisation with a new constitution.
Which is what has been implicitly done with all members becoming part of BIMSTEC barring Pakistan and Afghanistan.
