As History witnessed there never have been good relations between US and Iran. They have never been in any types of diplomatic relations. Due to have poor relations they don’t have embassies in each other country. US have interest center in “Swiss Embassy” Tehran same like Iran have its interest center in “Pakistan embassy” Washington. Now world experienced new phrase of US-Iran relations.
As regime change in Iran many analysts have start building a common assumption that Iran new leadership has a soft corner for US that will affect (Positive) the relations of both countries. Right after the leadership change, US start pressurizing Iran for nuclear peace talks. US also felt they can achieve their interests more easily by using soft techniques (negotiations, diplomacy) instead of putting sanctions on Iran. Then a move came which change the entire nuclear and NPT scenario, was US somehow manage to agree Iran on nuclear negotiation. According to that agreement Iran will stop enriching its nuclear program.
This US-Iran new nuclear move paved so many concerns for other countries like saudia, Israel.
This nuclear alley scenario brings many reservations for Pakistan as well. Where this agreement brings many good news for Pakistan such as “Iran-Pak gas pipeline” problem, same on the other hand its put serious concern our Pakistan nuclear program. If US will have better relations with Iran then possibility is there international community remove their reservations on Iran-Pak Gas pipeline project which has been pending since long.
Nowadays Islamic Pakistan nuclear program is already in the concerns of US. Now western world besides US will have eyes on Pakistan’ nuclear Program. Iran nuclear program was considered as “Islamic” bomb for US. There is chance it consider Pakistan nuclear program as “Islamic Bomb”. People have view that Pakistan will be new North Korea in nuclear world. Although Pakistan is facing militancy but its nuclear weapons are not in danger at all. Pakistan has been facing this militancy from eleven years but not have a signal ruin has happened to Pakistan nuclear weapons. Pakistan has proved on different international forums to be one of the biggest supporters of Nuclear Security. US for the sake its own interest put allegation on any country and when they feel US has particular interests in any particular region its strategy changed. US Iran relation change this phrase that “Today’s friend, tomorrows enemy” in US Iran case we can conclude “Yesterday’s enemy, today’s friend”. Now Pakistan should start building its good terms with Russia and china as oppose to US. Pakistan itself is not in position to counter the great power upcoming propaganda.
