ISLAMABAD: Iranian Ambassador to Pakistan Seyyed Mohammad Ali Hosseini on Tuesday proposed a new bloc comprising Russia, China and Turkey in addition to Pakistan and Iran for addressing regional issues and promoting cooperation among themselves.

Mr Hosseini was delivering a lecture at the Islamabad Strategic Studies Institute (ISSI) in connection with the 41st anniversary of the Islamic Revolution in Iran and upcoming 72nd anniversary of the establishment of bilateral ties between Pakistan and Iran.

“Countries like Iran, Pakistan, Turkey, Russia and China have the potential to form a new alliance for better future of the region,” the envoy said. He also urged closer cooperation between Islamabad and Tehran for addressing regional issues including the conflict in Afghanistan.

He sounded critical of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). “Unfortunately, due to the role of some countries, this organisation has not been effective in addressing issues of the Islamic Ummah and taking positions in the support of Islamic cause,” he said in a reference to the ‘dysfunctional’ OIC.

Ambassador Hosseini suggests cooperation on Afghan peace, Gwadar-Chabahar rail link

Underscoring the urgency for addressing the issues facing Muslim countries, Mr Hosseini said the US and Israel were trying to dictate a new agenda to the Muslim world. “The Islamic world should not allow that main subjects like Palestine be removed from the working agenda of their conferences/ meetings,” he maintained while dismissing President Trump’s ‘Deal of the Century’ as the most despicable peace plan for the Middle East.

He suggested effective utilisation of other forums like D-8 Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Economic Cooperation Organisation (ECO) for enhancing multilateral economic cooperation.

On the bilateral front, Mr Hosseini called for removal of all types of “hurdles and problems” impeding their cooperation. He was apparently referring to the US sanctions that have been preventing the realisation of Iran-Pakistan Gas Pipeline, opening of banking channels, and expansion of trade. “The two countries have the capability to become complementary to each other in the economic affairs of the two countries,” he maintained.

Laying emphasis on the completion of the IP gas pipeline project, he said: “Utilisation of this project and its connection with the important project of the CPEC will be a game-changer and bring vast economic development in Pakistan and the region.”

About the border markets, the ambassador said as Iran and Pakistan had a long border market, setting up of border markets could play a major role in trade and economic development of the two countries.

“Establishment of a rail network between Gwadar and Chabahar and its link up to Europe and Central Asia through Iran will usher major economic development in the region,” he added.

First make a strong Islamic security block compromising of Turkey Iran Pakistan Malaysia Qatar. Stand on your own 2 feet and then move on. OIC has failed us, if they cant get justice for Palestine then what is the point of the toothless organisation.

For economy block we already have the ECO. Let's take some action rather than big statements.

Pakistan won't do anything unless our masters in Riyadh give the green light. It's what happens when your nation has a whole has a slave-ish, and work avoidance mentality. You live off the charity of others, and become beholden to their commands.

I really have no hopes from our pacifist Govt and establishment. They can't do anything to save our Kashmiri brothers or at least put enough pressure on India via proxies or anything. How will they stand against Saudis, the US, and Israel?

We never learn from history. Don't we know what Tipu Sultan said?

Bachu when pinpoint missile runs behind you , and makes life for run, when civil war happens, when suicide bombs happens, then you knows the value of peace instead of Jihad. Ask from lions of Iraq, Afganistan, Yemen, Libya, Sodan, Syria, Palestine. Even few fools said Real Islam is coming from Afghanistan.

Until we stand on our feet economically we won't have an independent foreign policy. Pakistan exports a mere $25B, even BD has exports around $40B, let that sink in.


Pakistanis think off themselves as some sort of sword of Islam and regional military power but country is running on loans and khairat. Should have thought who they were voting for in the last 70 years if they wanted to be sword of Islam.

Just a small example, In UK you see clothes made in India, Bangladesh, China, Myanmar and Vietnam but I hardly see anything from Pakistan.

Our most well known exports to UK are:

1. Grooming gangs
2. Bearded Mullahs
3. Wannabe drug dealing gangsters
4. Suicide bombers/terrorists
5. Benefit cheats/tax dodgers

Either we do something or not we are already heading towards that situation. We are not Iraq, Afghanistan etc. I am not suggesting to go on a suicide mission. We are an atomic power and little aggressiveness can bring more cards on our table. We can atleast play our proxy card. Now it's up to us if we want to behave like a lion or want to behave like our current pacifist leaders loosing all diginity and power eventually.
