Every country has the right to maintain strong relations with the other, and this is what India and Israel are doing. Their strong relations should be a cause of some concern especially for Iran and Pakistan. Iran, which has opened its land spaciously for India amidst international sanctions, should have a suitable check and balance on Indian activities conducted on its soil.

Though it is anxiously hopeful of foreign investors to invest in it, it should evaluate the impacts of these relations over Pakistan. Indian investment of about $500 million in Iran, mainly for the construction of Chabahar Port, is not void of certain vested interests. It is also a tactic to pressurize Pakistan and fan insurgency in Balochistan – the same old tactics that India applied in Bangladesh.

Pakistan and Iran respectively, but they would like to look down upon them through the formation of a substantial and durable alliance between each other, and Netanyahu’s visit to India is the part of the same campaign.

Iran, being integrated with Pakistan on various fronts, needs to know the importance of having well-disposed relations with it that are the need of the hour too. Pakistanis will always be indebted to Iran for being compassionate on different occasions throughout history especially during the war with India but this should not be the end from Iran.

The politics around the world is changing with a very rapid pace and new alliances are being formed. Netanyahu’s visit is the part of the campaign to strengthen his alliance with India and solidifying Israel’s presence in South Asia. Israel considers Iran and Pakistan a similar threat for itself and in this regard, it surely thinks India to be the major state to have stronger relations with.

Indian entry on Iranian soil has raised a number of concerns among Pakistanis irrespective of them being Sunnis and Shias. India is killing two birds with one stone. On one side, it is buying patronage of Iran by investing in it, and on the other, it is appeasing Iranian archrival Israel.

Both of these countries have common regional antagonistic states exceedingly supported by the US. Israel is ready to cause havoc on Iran while India will never let go any chance to incapacitate Pakistan.

The developments with regards to Kulbushan network’s operations inside Pakistan from Iran and then the arrival of the Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansur to Pakistan from Iran have been appalling for many Pakistanis. It is obvious that India is attempting to have control on the Arabian Sea and on the markets of Central Asian countries including Iran and Afghanistan through the construction of Chabahar Port.

It is also poking it’s nose into other countries’ affairs through the undertaken project in Iran. Proving this fact, Kulbhushan revealed that Iranian soil has been used against Pakistan. His presence in the region itself strengthens the argument of Indians using Iranian soil to uphold extremism.

America has never been a trustworthy ally of Pakistan and the same case exists when it comes to Iran. Though it is the right of Iran to have good relations with India, the cooperation should be closely observed. Iran should know that the Hindu right and even left-wing parties support the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian land. On the other side, it is using brutal means to crush the Kashmiris who never wanted to join India since independence.

The developments with regards to Kulbushan network’s operations inside Pakistan from Iran and then the arrival of the Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansur to Pakistan from Iran have been appalling for many Pakistanis.

Pakistan and Iran should find out similarities between each other and work on extending financial as well as non-financial relations. They should be united on an equal footing against India and Israel. The state of Pakistan should protect Iranian interests in the region and Iran should protect Pakistani interests.

Both of these countries have common regional antagonistic states exceedingly supported by the US. Israel is ready to cause havoc on Iran while India will never let go any chance to incapacitate Pakistan.

Lastly, it should be remembered that India and Israel will never like to indulge into a direct war with their archrivals, Pakistan and Iran respectively, but they would like to look down upon them through the formation of a substantial and durable alliance between each other, and Netanyahu’s visit to India is the part of the same campaign.
