Crossfire War – Islamabad States Common Ground with Tehran on Issues


Crossfire War – TEHRAN WATCH – South Asia Theatre: Tehran – Islamabad/Delhi – Geneva; Pakistan Praises Common Ground on Regional – International Issues with Iran

Night Watch: GENEVA – Pakistan Parliamentary Speaker Amir Hossein used the Inter-Parliamentary Union forum in Geneva to state how significant it was for Islamabad to have a powerful Iran as its neighbor. He praised the two countries “exalted prestige” then continued, “Pakistan and Iran have shared stands on many international and regional issues.” [IRNA]

Of course he was referring to India. Hossein mentioned everything except the two governments joint attack plans that will be put into the field after Delhi decides to pursue Islamic militants into Pakistan’s part of Kashmir. It is not surprising Tehran-Islamabad decided to become so public about their strengthening international-regional (military) common ground in Geneva. The world’s most important center of private capital, at the highest level of their decision making, is concentrated here. Financial services here are very much aware therefore of the latest foreign policy intentions and planning of the most powerful countries since the money based in Geneva owns those governments and the industries that arm them.

That is why the world’s most exclusive real estate is along Lake Leman (Geneva) and that is why I wish I could be based here because the information that passes through is unparalled. It was here the final negotiations were held in January 1991, between Baghdad – Foreign Minister Tariq Aziz and Washington – Secretary of State James Baker just before the shooting got started in the Gulf War. Tehran knows that if they and Islamabad are successful against Delhi then Geneva will have to go through Pakistan – Iran to get the latest projection regarding India’s economy and also their permission to invest there.

Geneva and its international investment circles have been served notice.
