A #Tehran insider says the strategy is to revive #Iran nuclear program until the West returns to #JCPOA or creates a new deal. Until that happens, the Islamic Republic is simultaneously using a few other ingredients to its strategy. /1
Threat of retaliation against immediate neighbors | #Gulf states like #KSA #UAE #Kuwait #Bahrain have received ample warnings they will be hit through missiles or sabotage if #Iran is attacked directly or if sanctions are prolonged.
#Iran is appeasing #Turkey through concessions in #Syria #Iraq & on #Kurds. #Pakistan has received signals #Balochistan/#Karachi are targets if #Islamabad sides with #USA or with #Gulf states. (Apr attack, 14 soldiers hit, deep attack; sea-borne hit on #Gwadar)

The #UAE diplomacy with #NewDelhi is a step forward in helping end #India-#Iran strategic partnership. If successful, this will help #Pakistan interests that suffered due to Indian-Iranian partnership in #Afghanistan & #Balochistan. /1

The #UAE is likely hoping to permanently end #India's reliance on #Iran oil imports, and shift its oil contracts to Arab Gulf suppliers. #AbuDhabi is likely also interested in seeing India end its role in #Chabahar port, which has also created problems for #Pakistan and #China.
While helping #Pakistan economically & diplomatically (quiet diplomacy to bring the #US & #Islamabad closer), the #UAE has walked a fine balance to court #India in the hope of encouraging an #Indian shift away from #Iran.

🇨🇳🇮🇳 #CHINA's MARITIME NOOSE

China’s increased naval presence in the Indian subcontinental region, strategic investments in new 'bases' brings with it grave economic and military implications, #India must wake up and take note as #Pakistan seems like the least of its worries
The ports also come with the high risk of becoming debt traps for the host nations involved due to the massive billion dollar investments and super long lease agreements being put forth by #China as they control trade routes, container ports and petroleum transit in the region
🇱🇰 #Hambantota port in #SriLanka is feared to become a Chinese Naval facility due to its sheer size, capacity and 99 year lease agreement

#CPEC is the backbone of #Pakistan's Grand Strategy. Enemies are keen to foment trouble in #Balochistan to sabotage the project.
A hike in terror attacks has been witnessed in the past months in Balochistan especially in areas in proximity to #Gwadar which is part of #Sabotage.
Killings of #Hazara Shias in Balochistan helps the enemy kill two birds with a stone.
1. It causes trouble in Balochistan,
2. It decreses confidence of Shias in the state of #Pakistan and leads to anger and frustration in Gilgit Baltistan, The Critical province in #CPEC.

#Pakistan informed #Iran at highest levels in the past few weeks that #Tehran needs to do as much to ease tensions as other parties should. For example, easing of #US sanctions should come with Iran reducing support to proxies in #Yemen/#Syria. #Iranian officials asked #Islamabad
..to openly hold the #US responsible for current tensions in #Gulf. #Pakistan said tensions are a shared responsibility & all parties can do more to reduce hostilities. Pakistan has assumed responsibilities to secure international navigation in Northern Arabian Sea
just at the mouth of Strait of #Hormuz. #Pakistani naval vessels are patrolling the region and cooperating closely with #Oman #UAE #US and other allies. Pakistan is still reeling from the daring attack of May 11 on #Gwadar which was followed by #Fujairah next day & then #Saudi

#Rouhani invites #Japan to invest in #Chabahar. Interesting how #Iran is bringing countries that have policy issues with #China to get in the port to counter #CPEC/#Gwadar.
This should not surprise anyone. This is a consistent policy of involving states with issues with #China like #India/#US/#Japan to counter #CPEC/#Gwadar.
This is why it is important that #Pakistan engages #Trump Admin and convinces it that waiver on #Chabahar to #India/#Iran not in #US interest. It strengthens lobbies in #Afghanistan opposed to Trump peace plan.

#Pakistan releases pictures from PC Hotel in #Gwadar, 3 terrorists killed but bodies held for identification. Max effort was made to capture them alive to know where they came from. Sea is likelier route but unconfirmed yet. #India #Afghanistan #ChabaharTerrorNetwork
There are only two places where the #Gwadar attack terrorists came from: Iran and Afghanistan. In both cases, #Indian representative offices in #Zahedan, #Chabahar, and #Kandahar are suspects. @AQpk

Local authorities in #Pakistan are not doing a good job protecting #Pakistani #Hazara population in #Quetta #Balochistan but the complex geopolitics involved in this story are terrifying. /1

There is a compelling case for categorizing attacks on #Hazara as acts of terrorism & war, not only sectarianism. #Pakistani Hazara & the State are embroiled in a complex situation that demands recognition & full disclosure. /2

#Pakistan law enforcement has eliminated key anti-#Shia extremist #Sunni militants in #Balochistan+#Punjab since 2015, & worked with #US & #Afghanistan to close #LeJ/#TTP/#BLA terror camps (involved in sectarian killings as part of a wider anti-Pak war)./3
