Opinion & Discussion

Today, Shah Mehmood is in the UAE for urgent discussion on changing environment in the region. In coming days he would be visiting Tehran and Ankara after UAE.

There seems to be urgency shown by Pakistan after Biden's recent announcement to withdraw troops from Afghanistan.
Pakistan is trying to muster support and also talk to the regional countries regarding the future of Afghanistan and who would be holding stakes in the new Afghanistan political setup.

With UAE other issue of "Normalisation of relation between Pakistan and India" would also be discussed. UAE has announced recently that it is facilitating "secret negotiations" between the two countries for last few months. Pakistan yet to accept or deny such back channels talks taking place with the help of UAE.

In Turkey, Shah Mehmood would hold important meetings regarding the impending conference on Afghanistan.
India has also been invited to the conference on the insistence of the USA. USA is determined to give India a role in Afghanistan after it's troops departure.

We have seen the murmurs by the Indian Generals regarding their "concerns on security situation in Afghanistan" after American troops departure.

India is concerned that it would gradually lose control it has exercised for over a decade in Afghanistan through his puppet Afghan politicians. Taliban are looking for the dissolution of the current power structure and imposition of a new arrangement in which they would hold major stakes in the power.

Taliban demands has alarm bells ringing in India. Any control by the Afghani Taliban of the Government in Afghanistan would means Indians should also pack their bags and go home. Their huge investment in Afghanistan's projects and their support for current corrupt corps of Afghanistan politicians is at risk.

Among this jostling of power share in Afghanistan , Pakistan is making its moves to garner support from like minded countries , so a united front can be presented on Afghan issues.

The other two important players off course are Russia and China. In my opinion the strategies are already formed by Pakistan with these two influential countries. Russian's foreign minister visit of Pakistan was in this connection.

It is not hard to understand why Modi sought backdoor channel talks with Pakistan. Has anyone noticed how his beard and hair has grown by a mile?

Superb move by Pakistan. Turkey and Iran must be taken on board 100%. Just imagine, China, Russia, Iran, Turkey and Pakistan on the same page in Afghanistan. There is no bloc or power on earth which can undo such regional cooperation.

This has to eventually happen to some extent if things remain the same, and it is happening right now, but there's a good chance that it will never be fully realized.

First of all, Russia and China are strategic partners, but they both pursue their own interests separately and compete with each other when opportunities arise. Secondly, Russia and India have close ties and even though India is shifting towards the West, they are still strategic partners and I doubt Indians would lose Russians anytime soon. Turkey and Iran continue to remain partners, but their regional interests are diverging fast. Turkey is a NATO country and they won't form an alliance with Russia. Pakistan cannot get too close to Iran either, because of the Arab Sheikhdoms in the Persian Gulf and the United States.

And yet, surprisingly enough, it seems that the stupidity of the Americans and the Europeans is bringing all those countries close to each other against all odds.

Iran is not an enemy. It has certain grievances and interests. Just like we do. We can find common ground and we don't want a messy relations with an important neighbor. Our disagreements can and should be addressed through intensive dialog. We don't have other alternatives. Neither do we want to look for other alternatives.

Iran and Pakistan share an insane amount of historical and linguistic ties. Let's not reduce the importance of our brotherly relations between Iran and Pakistan. Our founding fathers spoke Farsi language and used this as part of our identity. That is how important Iran is to Pakistan.

There is nothing to find common with Iran. Time and time again Iran has revealed itself as an enemy to our people and it wishes no good upon us. We may not dislike it or care about them but they do about us and it is about time we take them serious and give them all our free time and attention to solely to them

What do you propose? We create an enemy? Won't happen. Pakistan Iran relations will improve drastically. Let the Americans move out. We won't serve one side of the spectrum. The new Pakistan will reset ties with all nations. Those that want cordial relations will seek this opportunity.

The Americans will move out. There is already deal with India. This frees up Pakistan. We militarize the border first and seek to provoke or search for pretexts for something big. All our devotion should be given to them period.

I have had enough of these mojos. Their time has come

Whatever happens Iran Pak relations are going to move forward leaps and bound. Iran is an important nation with vast oil and gas resources. Pakistan needs these resources.

Except God bro. Never make such a tall claim without God. People who did ended up being spat out by the oceans and the seas. Some swallowed by them.

White European civilization is entering decline.

And giving space to some Asian, Eurasian and African people to rise a little more than before.

The priority should be to get the American's out of Afghanistan even f that means Pakistan has to pay for barber to shave Modi's beard. Once the Americans are out geography and ethnic links will simply carry their own dynamic. In this scenario Iran through it's links with Shia Hazara, Tajik Fariswan, Turkish connection with Turkic Uzbeks and Pakistan through the Pashtun connection must together learn to work together to build a stable Afghanistan that fits in with their regional interests. The Russians play vital role because Central Asian republics ae still heavily under Moscow's influence.

India has zero access to Afghanistan and can easily be squeezed out like it was before Americans rolled in with Musharaf's help in 2001. The priority is Americans out. Then work with regional partners. That is a must.

India will only get a chance if for instance Pakistan and Iran begin to work against each other. Into that crack you can bet India will spill in again. But I think we can only hope our establishment learns to use realpolitics and works with Iran, Turkey and Russia to establish a regional accord. China will increasingly have a role as a eonomic power and possibly extend CPEC into Afghanistan thus linking Pakistan with Central Asia.

That would really be a dream. The day trucks begin driving from Dushanbe, Tajikistan down to Gwadar.
