Expert: Pakistan’s Lax Border Control Not Ill-Intentioned

Expert: Pakistan’s Lax Border Control Not Ill-Intentioned Expert: Pakistan’s Lax Border Control Not Ill-Intentioned

Pakistan is well aware that insecurity along its border with Iran will harm its own interests in the long run, a political analyst said, dismissing speculations that the Islamabad government’s lax control over certain stretches of the shared border is ill-intentioned.  
“I do not believe that the Pakistanis intend to make the common border with Iran insecure as it could result in the formation of a coalition among Iran, India and Afghanistan against them and tighten the noose around the country. In fact, theoretically, they will not benefit from such a thing,” Pir Mohammad Mollazehi, an expert on Indian subcontinent issues, also told ISNA. 
His comments came after some political experts weighed in on a recent suicide bombing against military forces in southeastern Iran, saying that Pakistan deliberately refuses to reinforce border security in that area to undermine Iran-India relations.
