    Around 10,000 Daesh terrorists were functioning actively in nine provinces in Afghanistan.

    Pakistani army chief Bajwa visited Tehran last November after 10 Iranian border guards were killed and two others injured in an ambush near the town of Mirjaveh in the southeastern Iranian province of Sistan-Balochistan, which borders Pakistan.

    The upcoming visit by Baqeri is also expected to feature assessment of the progress made in the implementation of the agreements reached between the two countries during Bajwa’s visit.

    Iran and Pakistan has a common enemy sitting in Afghanistan ... America will use ISIS from Afghanistan to attack Pakistan and create strive between Iran and Pakistan. Its need of an Hour that Iran and Pakistan join hands against the evil Trinity of India America and Afghanistan ..Iran needs to recognize that India will never ever be friends with Iran and will just use Iran against Pakistan .

    India is best buddy with Jewish murderer Regime in Israel .. dont expect anything better from them @Serpentine @haman10

    It is not only Pakistan but Iran as well. We don't follow events in Iran but There has be attack in there as well by ISIS coming from Afghanistan. This news of Spy chiefs meeting was disclosed by Russia. Pakistan has still not officially denied or confirmed the meeting till now nor Iran and neither China.

    FO neither confirms nor denies hosting of spy chiefs’ meeting

    According to Irani News sources. Some joint effort is being highlighted and also in Russian sources as well. Chinese News media is only quoting Russians. To me it seems they are working a counter strategy. The US sources is calling this meeting anti-US but it is their habit to do so we all know very well why?

    The main question is are they going to go in to hunt ISIS as Mustang blast has given enough reason to go on offensive. Russian and Chinese pillar is enough to counter USA. Ground work will fall on Iran and Pakistan. Are we going to open a front? or will this be covert operation?

    Thanks for your input.

    India and Israel are leading ISIS both in Syria and Afghanistan. USA is just to accommodate them. Pakistan played a good role in Iraq but now the dynamics have changed.

    This is how I see it, in that landlocked country their options are highly limited. They will bitch and moan at most. The biggest hurdle from Pakistan's angle is domestically the pol parties that benefited from yankee NRO are going to be the sole cause of anarchy this month. Elections are becoming bloody and isis-afghan chapter is the front for it.

    Pakistan's participation in this alliance will be limited until Pakistan defeats the internal threat FIRST. Once the state is back to functioning properly then Pakistan should pursue isis in afghanistan.

    The silver lining is China, Russia and Iran can manage it among themselves while Pakistan sorts out the internal factors.
