Pakistan clutched by Afghan-India agreement

Latest News / Islamabad – The new agreement of India-Afghan could inflame Pakistan stand-in war against India and threatens Islamabad regional objectives in South Asia as its dialogues with Afghanistan and USA hit rocks, source reported.

Pakistan has been on the suspicious as Afghanistan has cozies up to India. Kabul declares the recent murder of its peace envoy Burhanuddin Rabbani was plotted in Pakistan, and has accused Islamabad of hindering the investigation.

Pakistan has been terse about the burgeoning India-Afghanistan alliance. “Both are sovereign countries and they have the right to do whatever they want to,” Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said in brief response.

But the alliance undermines Pakistan’s policy of courting Afghanistan to offset the regional superpower status of India, with which it has fought three wars since independence in 1947, including two over Kashmir.

Fearful of encirclement by its wealthier neighbor, Pakistan has long focused on Afghanistan — arming Islamist warlords against the Soviets in the 1980s, backing the Taliban in the 1990s and hedging its bets in the 2000s.

But the new strategic partnership sealed Tuesday, which will see India take a bigger role in training Afghan security forces after already dishing out more than $2 billion in aid, threatens to isolate Pakistan further.
