A Clean Break is Needed (III)

...Without doubt, the Peshawar school attack is a defining moment. Pakistan cannot afford to carry on as before. Perhaps, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif could be given the benefit of doubt when he insists that Pakistan will no more differentiate between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ Taliban. In immediate terms, Sharif’s handling of the Indian demand for continued detention of Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, operations commander of the Lashkar-e-Taiba who was a key operative in masterminding the Mumbai terrorist strike in November 2008, becomes a test case...

A Clean Break is Needed (II)

At first sight, the Afghan-Pakistani differences and disputes pose the single biggest negative feature of the regional security scenario in South Asia. However, that will be to underestimate the potency of the dark clouds gathering on the horizon of India-Pakistan relationship.  While the Afghan-Pakistan problem is easily definable, that is not the case with the unfinished business of the Partition involving India and Pakistan in 1947 where politics mixes with religion, national identity and a huge backlog of blood-soaked history...

A Clean Break is Needed (I)

The ghastly attack on an army school in Peshawar last Tuesday appears to be a topping point, finally, in Pakistan’s existential struggle with terrorism. Will the Pakistani leadership rise to the challenge? An equally daunting challenge awaits the policymakers in New Delhi. How does the Indian leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi respond to the watershed event of last week in Peshawar?..

India, Pakistan Get Rare Chance to Ignore US

The meeting of the Director-General of Military Operations [DGMO] of India and Pakistan, which is due to take place on Tuesday at the GHQ in Rawalpindi, becomes a rare event in the chronicle of the fractured relationship between the two countries. Possibly, such an exchange between the two militaries is taking place for the first time since the then Indian DGMO Lt. Gen. Satish Nambiar visited Pakistan in 1991. Gen. Nambiar is a gifted soldier-diplomat and the visit went exceedingly well. His Pakistani hosts even took him and his delegation, in an exceptional gesture, to the Khyber Pass to peep into the tangled world of Afghanistan…

Who Will Benefit from the Disintegration of Pakistan?

On the eve of the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, the goals of U.S. politicians with regard to Pakistan are as follows: 1) the fragmentation of Pakistan with a view to weakening the strategic position of China in Southern Asia; 2) full control of the territory of the "narcotaliban", where about half of the world's hard drugs are produced; 3) neutralization of Pakistan's nuclear program, which is being implemented with the assistance of Chinese specialists (or on the contrary, if this is not successful, the removal of the psychological barrier to using atomic weapons)...

Whither US-Pak Relations After Kerry’s Visit

After a number of false starts US Secretary of State, John Kerry finally did arrive in Pakistan’s capital Islamabad on the 31 st July... One subject that figured prominently during the Kerry visitwas the drone attacks on Pakistan soil. Kerry defended these attacks...Pakistan, however...wanted the drone attacks to be stopped and not just curtailed. This will remain a point of contention between the two sides...Kerry had made an effort to put US-Pak relations on the path of normalisation.Whether this reasoning would be accepted remains open to question in a Pakistan where anti-American sentiment has been growing over the years…

US Drones and Destabilized Pakistan

John Kerry arrived in Pakistan the day after Mamnoon Hussain was elected the new President of the country. Just a few hours before that, the jail building in Dera Ismail Khan  (located in the tribes area, in the North-West of Pakistan) was captured by Pakistani Taliban. The State Secretary came to meet Prime Minister Navaz Sharif, acting President Asif Zardari (Mamnoon Hussein was to take office on August 9) and top military leaders. There was a wide range of issues on the agenda, including the thorniest one which has deteriorated the relationship with Washington – the incessant operations of drones in Pakistan (that is exactly what makes Pakistan the leader among nations with strong anti-US sentiments)…

Pakistan Post Election

The general elections that took place in May 2013 in Pakistan’s Lower House of Parliament – the National Assembly – and in the provincial assemblies of Punjab, Sindh, Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (formerly the North-West Frontier Province) has introduced certain changes into the life of this large Asian nation with a population of nearly 200 million, a nation with nuclear weapons that occupies a crucially important geopolitical position in South Eurasia...

Whither Afghan-Pak Relations (III)

...An optimistic but perhaps plausible scenario is that once there has been an exchange of prisoners - a sine qua non for building Taliban confidence in the efficacy of negotiations - Pakistan can play the role assigned to it in the Roadmap proposed by the Afghan High peace Council and help bring about a reconciliation which remains at this time the best hope for bringing a modicum of peace to Afghanistan. This will require Karzai to abandon his current anti-Pakistan stance and revert to thinking of Pakistan and Afghanistan as «conjoined twins» whose fates are intertwined.

Najmuddin A. SHAIKH | 11.06.2013


 

Whither Afghan-Pak Relations? (II)

Karzai believes or at least indicates publicly that the difficulties in advancing reconciliation have arisen because Pakistan has not cooperated. Pakistan, his spokesman says, has failed to release the Taliban prisoners Afghanistan wants specially Ghani Baradar Mullah Omar’s former No.2. Further, his spokesman alleges that at Chequers, Pakistan laid down 3 conditions for Pakistan’s cooperation. These were that Afghanistan limit its relations with India; reach a domestic consensus on peace; and immediately sign a strategic partnership with Pakistan...

70-th Anniversary of Gdansk Liberation

...The post-war history of Gdansk, liberated on March 30, shows that some people have a really poor memory. Gdansk, or the free city of Danzig, had never been part of Polish state till the Versailles Treaty of 1919 that gave Poland access to the Baltic Sea. Germans had accounted for the larger part of population... The USSR did much more than just liberate Polish cities. Thanks to the position of the Soviet Union taken at the Potsdam conference the Poland’s territory was increased by at least a third in comparison with what it had been before the war. Danzig was incorporated into Poland. That’s what Poles appear to forget nowadays. They feel no gratitude towards Russia. And they seem not to remember how cruelly they treated the Germans residing in Danzig...
