The British government had made a similar arms deal with Saudi Arabia a few months earlier. These deals have been discussed as economic deals and been argued for because they could create jobs in the US and the UK. There are also some analysts who argue that these deals make a US ally, Saudi Arabia, stronger in the Middle East.

Farzad Ramezani-bonesh
Pakistan’s Gwadar port is located along the coast of Makran at an approximate distance of 533 kilometers from Karachi port city and 120 kilometers from Iran’s shores.

From another viewpoint, Gwadar port is located in the southern part of the “China-Pakistan Economic Corridor,” which is supposed to be made operational through an investment of about 52 billion dollars to connect Xinjiang in northwestern China to Gwadar.

The Challenge of Establishing Domestic Security in Afghanistan
Wednesday, June 14, 2017

Amanollah Safaei
It was believed that following the fall of the Taliban in 2001, dismantling of al-Qaeda’s bases in Afghanistan and election of a broad-based government in this country, insecurity that reigned there for the past three decades would come to an end. However, despite presence of tens of thousands of international forces as well as the Afghan army and a 300,000-strong police force in the past 16 years, Afghanistan is still not considered a safe country and the wave of immigration out of the country still continues with full force. Although presence of international forces has been effective in catalyzing the fall of the Taliban regime and has dealt drastic blows to al-Qaeda terrorist outfit, it has inflicted heavy material and spiritual costs on the Afghan government and nation.
