The withdrawal of NATO troops from Afghanistan in 2014 portends a transition for all countries in the region; their future is going to depend on how they frame their relationships and cooperate in the face of further conflicts. Pakistan, on the frontline of the present conflict, is perhaps most directly involved; it faces significant challenges, particularly in its so-called tribal belt, that may become insurmountable if they are not addressed with a focus on regional stability. In this context, Pakistan’s relationship with India has special significance. Though the problems in the region necessitate reconciliation between the two South Asian neighbours, they seemingly envisage different futures for Afghanistan. This lecture addresses the issues mentioned, and looks at possible and desirable scenarios.
