You Mr Michael, Shahid Afridi etc you are all fool. Iran is innery envoying Pakistan's hold on Persian Gulf and Strait of Hurmaz, He wants to reduce Pakistan's naval power in this area. Iran is a Muslim country but we should not turn our eyes from these realities. Monopoly is best than competition. Iran also have rogue plans for Balochistan.

Iran Pakistan having excellent bilateral relations and we are on positive slope ..we know that we already has upper edge because we already have ready operational deep sea port GWADAR and Iran still far having one though they started building it bit it take them not less than 5 years to making it operational so raise the competition issue after 7 years not before - its irrelevant - current fact is Pakistan is monopoly in that area

Michael you are right, But Fact is that Iran does not need any such port, It is Iran's straitigic policy to prevent the Pakistan's lonely hold on Straif of Hurmaiz. In International Affairs ans self gaining of Power no body cares for neighbourhood and Historical good relations. Iran is envoying. We should keep these facts in mind. Pak Iran relations now have those warmth that was in earlier days. Iran is Pakistan's rival on Afghan Issue and Iran looks everything in this perspective.

I am agree with Abbasi. Proof of Iran's rivalry with Pakistan is that Iran support India on Kashmir instead of Pakistan. Afer a so called Islamic revolution Iran has antagonistic rudeness with Sunni Dominant Pakistan. Pakistan's strong ties with Saudia and Arabic Countries is not liked by Iranies.

Dear still to date have no border issues with IRAN and due to that we are on peace mind with our South Western borders ...

I agree that yes Iran Does not support our stance on Kashmir but as i see We have to pursue actively for peaceful solution of every dispute...

I support barter trade agreement with IRAN as this also ease and help maintain our dollar account deficit

I am agree with Michael to some extant but It is natural that We be suspicious on Iran's such Plans and other thing is that due to Supremacy of Pakistan in Ordinance Technology Pakistan still keep upper hand in Persian Gulf and Strait Hurmaz instead of Iran's presence. I want to say that Iran is not starting this project for Economics Prospectives mainly, She is Starting it because of Strategic Prospectives. She is feeling Pakistan's Prsence so near to Gulf and State of Hurmiz as a danger for her authority.

Any country would feel that even India feel threatened by GWADAR Port ... and India Officially convey that also ... they feel that China and Pakistan are encircling it but that's not true for Pakistan for China i can't say that ... What Pakistan goal - just to bring prosperity in that area and yes strategically if a situation arise like 70's when India blocked - a substitute will be available in shape of GWADAR
