People on this board are so far away from ground reality. Iran has been Pakistan's strategic depth during the hard times of this country and military personnel of Pakistani armed forces didn't fotger this very fact.

Israeli words coming out of the mouth of Israeli appointees in Azerbaijan cannot cause strategic problems in the region but only helps the regional partners to come closer and solve the issues. I would take this as a positive development in the region.

Should be taken as an enemy.
Have to make enemies friends by finding common ground. Even those working against each others' interests can learn to cooperate. If we have complaints, so do they. Let us wish for better relations. This does not mean allowing or excusing subversive activities.

Otherwise, the US and Israel and others will sit back and laugh at the amazing fires of sectarianism that they've ignited in our part of the world. We fight and kill each other, and they say cheers over a nice glass of champagne.

Diplomatic engagements never hurt but Iran should walk the talk. They are harbouring Indian sponsored terrorists. They are allowing their land to be used by India. These are some hard facts which will not allow any progress. Kulbashan Yadav was operating via Chahbahar port.

Iran is Pakistan's neighbor and an Islamic country and thus holds huge importance for Pakistan. Both should have brotherly relations like we had pre Iranian revolution. Excellent relations are the way forward for both countries and InshaAllah, this visit of Iranian chief of staff will help in this.

Is that a flute in the Pakistan General’s hand?
MALACCA – THE CANE THAT SYMBOLIZES COMMAND IN MILITARY

The installation of new army chief in the change of command ceremony completes when the outgoing army chief hands over ceremonial ‘baton of command’ – known as Malacca cane – to his successor.
But what actually is the Malacca stick or command stick and why it carries so significance in the military?
Background
Malacca Cane is prepared from a special cane in Malacca, a Singaporean island. Early in this century, Malacca was referred to as the “King of Canes.”

Malacca is one species of rattan (Calamus Ascipionum) also found on the coast of Sumatra in Indonesia. Rattan palms have long, slender stems, and were perfect for fashioning walking sticks. Rattan is a South East Asian climbing plant with long thin strong stems used especially for making furniture.

The stem is not round, but has a ridge or spine, often called a “teardrop,” running along its length.
It is very light-weight, yet strong, with no two specimens being alike. The stem is made up of links with joints or nodes at both ends like bamboo.

Malacca stick’s importance in the military

The stick is considered a symbol of command in the army. The tradition of handing over Malacca stick to the new army chief dates to the British era.
The Malacca stick is part of military uniforms in several countries including Sri Lanka, India, Britain.

Outgoing Army Chief General Raheel Sharif handed over the command stick to his successor General Qamar Javed Bajwa at a ceremony in Rawalpindi.


Gen Sharif had received the Malacca stick from then General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani in 2013.

While it was Musharraf who had handed over the stick to Gen Kayani in 2007 after he relinquished the charge.

What if the stick gets broken?

The Malacca cane stick mere symbolizes command in the military. In case the stick is broken (which hasn’t been heard as yet), it doesn’t have any effect on authority of the military head.
The stick symbolically adds to clout of the army chief and signifies the responsibilities and authority on the shoulders of the army head.
