    Pakistan and Iran Relationship......

    Having read a topic with regards to Pakistan/Iran relationship in Gupshup, I am now going through a stage of paranoia and confusion.

    Strategically, I believe it is in the interest of both Pakistan and Iran to have a good economic and political relationship.

    If Pakistan/Iran relationship is to deteriorate – what economic and security issues are there for Pakistan (if any)?

    If there is a war (god forbid) between India and Pakistan, whose side would Iran take? There has been rumors/hearsay that Iran is keen to annex Balochistan? Is it true or what?

    If the proposed gas/fuel pipeline between Iran and India not built (even though CE has given his assurances of its’ security and continuity of supply in all eventualities), would Iran hold Pakistan responsible for loss of business from India?

    Any comments on the above, and any further information on the importance of Pakistan/Iran relationship would be much appreciated.

    If it not built at all, where is question of loss of business. Anyway, the price of liquified gas by ship is fast approaching the one sent by pipelines.

      Can India rely on his assurance? What good is the reassurance from someone who can not even collect income tax from his own people. Given the volatile nature of politics in Pakistan and prolification of fundamentalist groups, any assurance from a Pakistani government is worthless unless backed by a $20 billion security deposit in an escrow account that India and Iran could use to offset their losses in case of a disruption of gas flow by Pakistan.

        Iran, Pakistan to increase military co-operation
        TEHRAN (October 30) : Iran and Pakistan vowed on Sunday to boost their military cooperation during a visit to Tehran by the head of the Pakistani Navy, the state IRNA news agency reported.
        Iranian President Muhammad Khatemi said closer ties with Islamabad are "of utmost importance to the Islamic republic" and that the two nations could "bring lasting peace and stability to the region."

        Good step, better defense relations between Pak-Iran are probably the best way to secure future Pak-Iran trade ties. Pak being a pro-military nation would be more careful about relationship with Iran then we’ve been in the past.

          Oh no that is not good. A guppie thinking is not a good idea

          Strategically, I believe it is in the interest of both Pakistan and Iran to have a good economic and political relationship.

          True very true, heck they helped us in the 1965, and 1971 wars.
          They are our true friends.
          Like China.


          If Pakistan/Iran relationship is to deteriorate – what economic and security issues are there for Pakistan (if any)?

          Secuirty first: Say it went as bad as india.
          Then we are in deep ****.
          But if it went low like now, we can always build it back up once again.
          But we should never let they become our enemies.
          That is not an option.
          Economic nothing.
          We have no economic ties.
          Which is wrong.
          Strong economic ties led to strong political and social relationships.
          If we can strengthen our economic relationship there is no way Iran can become our enemy.
          To cement friendships in the 21st century.
          Economics and trade are the key.


          If there is a war (god forbid) between India and Pakistan, whose side would Iran take? There has been rumors/hearsay that Iran is keen to annex Balochistan? Is it true or what?

          Iran would back us i believe, but you can never be sure at all.
          Balo was once part of Iran. but not now.
          The iranis would never violate our territory.
          That hearsay is based on an American plan which seems to have gone to hell, now, the way the CE is running the show


          If the proposed gas/fuel pipeline between Iran and India not built (even though CE has given his assurances of its’ security and continuity of supply in all eventualities), would Iran hold Pakistan responsible for loss of business from India?

          Like Ullu said what loss of business.
          But pakistan would not say no, as it will provide us with 700 million US dollars a year, money we dearly need.


          Any comments on the above, and any further information on the importance of Pakistan/Iran relationship would be much appreciated.
