Pakistan’s Army Chief Arrives in Iran on Two-Day Official Visit

Pakistan’s Chief of Army Staff General Asim Munir is currently on a two-day official visit to Iran. The purpose of the visit is to strengthen bilateral relations and discuss defense and security matters. This visit holds significance considering the changing dynamics in the region. It is seen as a possible step towards forming new alliances, especially after China successfully mediated between Saudi Arabia and Iran, resulting in the restoration of diplomatic ties.

In June, Iran’s Naval Chief announced plans to create a naval alliance involving Saudi Arabia, three other Gulf states, India, and Pakistan. There are indications that China may play a central role in this alliance. Some experts believe that China, Pakistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Russia share common interests in the current geopolitical landscape and could be considered natural allies.
