Pakistan and Iran need to cooperate on the recent developments in Afghanistan

Najam ud Din Sheikh, Former Foreign Secretary 

Iran is an important neighbor sharing a long  and sensitive border with Pakistan .Pakistan and Iran need to cooperate on the recent developments in Afghanistan so that these changes go in the right direction and Afghan soil does not become a sanctuary of terrorists.International assistance is important at this juncture as Afghanistan is facing a crisis situation and if assistance does not reach it, people there will be below poverty line.Border markets is a good idea but these markets must be properly managed and safeguarded.
