Iran, Pakistan, China can bring peace to Afghanistan: Pak analyst
Islamabad, A senior Pakistani analyst says that Iran, Pakistan and China through their close cooperation can bring peace and stability in Afghanistan which would defeat the US ulterior motives in the war torn country.
Ashraf Javed in his article published in the magazine of Urdu daily Nawa-e-waqt said that US wants to stay in Afghanistan to keep an eye on other countries of the region and to closely monitor the nuclear program of Pakistan.
The analyst expressing his views said increasing tension in south Asia today has not only become matter of concern for the regional countries but for the international powers also, and could also create instability in the whole world if not checked properly.
He said terrorism is not the problem of countries of south Asia and even international community has failed to root out this menace from the world which is increasing day by day.
The analyst added it is a big question that why big powers like US, Russia, China and European countries with their rich resources have failed to stop terrorism or maybe some big countries of the world like this situation to prevail as it would keep their arms industries running.
He noted that Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in his recent visit to Pakistan has met with Prime Minister Shaihid Kaqan Abbasi, Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa, Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif, and National Security Adviser Nasser Khan Janjua and had useful discussions on bilateral ties along with the regional and international developments.
He went on to say that during the visit the Iranian foreign minister also expressed willingness to enhance trade cooperation with Pakistan as par agreed between the leaders of the two countries and also called for complementation of much delayed Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline project.
Ashraf Javed said that Iran's joining the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) would be a welcoming development.
He said that right now both Iran and Pakistan are facing challenge of terrorism and major reason for this is the US is supporting Daesh activities in Afghanistan. He said nexus of Deash and US in Afghanistan is definitely not in the interest of Iran.
The analyst went on to say that right now situation in Syria, Iraq, Libya is really bad, whereas US has its own agenda in Middle East and if something is happened to the peace of Iran then it would directly benefit the US and the Zionist Regime.
He said that US accuses Muslim world of terrorism however, in reality Muslim countries are the victims of terrorism.
The analyst was of the view that the UN, US and Europe States are behind instability in the Muslim world but they are not realizing that one day they have to face strong reaction from the oppressed Muslim countries which is not good for the whole world.
He said that peace cannot be restored in south Asian unless dialogue is initiated in for the purpose. He added that US does not want to see peace in Afghanistan because in that case it would lose its justification for staying in the country.
Ashraf Javed said that US wants to stay in Afghanistan to keep an eye on other countries of the region and to closely monitor the nuclear program of Pakistan but Iran, Pakistan and China through their close cooperation can bring peace and stability in Afghanistan and force the US to leave the country.
