Indian designs & Chabahar accord
The development of CPEC project is of geostrategic importance for the region’s economic growth. Gwadar is strategically located on the western end of Balochistan coast, opposite to the Gulf of Oman which is an important route for oil tankers bound for Japan and Western countries. The route through Gwadar to Central Asia is the most economical, with a distance of only 1400 kilometers.
But India doesn’t want to see the establishment this route. India made counter alliance against Pakistan with the help our brother countries Iran and Afghanistan. Actually India wants to build three way transits for access to central Asia bypassing Pakistan but Iran must realise Indian dishonesty and malicious ill-will for Pakistan.
In 2009 India voted against Iran at IAEA resolution. Indian Prime Minister Man Mohan Singh said that he was against Iran acquiring nuclear weapons. Iranian think tanks should think as to why India is investing 500 million dollar in Chabahar. In reality the development of the port of Gwadar provides an alternate trade route for the land-locked countries of central Asia. India hopes that India will use Iran and Afghanistan as a proxy war to destabilize Pakistan. So both Islamic states must rethink and review once again their relations with India and opt for a clear-headed indigenous foreign policy, for ensuring lasting interests of the Muslim Ummah.. —Karachi
