United with Iran (The Nation (Pakistan))

Iran and the world’ powerful countries concluded an agreement on its nuclear capability, curbing the production of nuclear weapons, in return the 11 years of imposed economic sanctions, against Iran, will be lifted in 65 days, after signing the agreement. Iran will be having hundreds of billions of dollars in result of the deal and will be able to play a major role in the world. Saudi Arabia and Israel are not happy and called the deal a historic mistake, as role of both these countries in Middle East is likely to be affected.

Every thoughtful Pakistani knows Pakistan is paying a heavy price due to its policy of appeasing the Gulf States, for religious and economic interest. Pakistan should revisit its Middle East policy, keeping in view its national interest. Pakistan should now implement the Iran and Pakistan Natural Gas pipelines project, which will solve the energy crisis faced by Pakistan. I suggest President and Prime Minister should visit Iran soon.
