Pakistan-Turkmenistan: Looking For New Horizons

ECO with a population of 440 million, is not a small market, the US that is a considered a big consumer market is 300 million. If the countries are given a free hand by the outside forces, the economy, culture, trade, communication, industry etc can be augmented and integrated for the mutual benefit of the member countries.

Before I make my analysis on Turkmenistan, I would like to add that seeing into the future, I could visualize that Central Asian Republics (CAR) should be the future focus of Pakistan. It was not just a passion or some gut feeling but signs and the reading of the events was clearly pointing in that direction. Since CAR is part of ECO, therefore CAR cannot be studied separately but in a broader context of ECO. Accordingly a virtual think tank was established in 2008 to study and focus on ECO with a special emphasis on CAR. When I discussed with a number of professors of IR from different universities, all after a deep thought came back as if they come out of sleep and opined that ECO is our future and CAR needs a special study to build strong ties.

Informed officials belonging to two agencies in the Middle East intelligence community have shared a glimpse of what has been developing in and around crisis-stricken Syria months after the official announcement by a group calling itself the ‘Free Syrian Army‘, headed by their commander Colonel Riyad al-Asad (pictured top-left, formerly in the Syrian Air Force) emerged.

The announcement came on July 29 2011 through a video in which uniformed men who claimed to be defectors from the regime’s armed forces called upon and encourage their former colleagues to join them. The main objective of this move, according to Riyad is, “…to work hand in hand with the people to achieve freedom and dignity to bring the regime down, protect the revolution and the country’s resources, and stand in the face of the irresponsible military machine that protects the regime”.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Some recent confessions made by a PKK (Kurdistan Worker’s Party) ringleader have unveiled Israel’s tight relations and collaboration with the terrorist group, Turkish media reports said on Sunday.

According to a report by the Turkish TRT network, Kanan, the leader of an 8-member cell disbanded by the Turkish security forces, confessed that he had played a part in the raid on a Turkish navy base in Iskenderun port on May 31, 2010, the same day Israeli commandos attacked Mavi Marmara, the aid ship trying to break the Gaza Siege.

Kanan said in his confession that he lives in Israel and travels to Turkey occasionally, adding that he had commuted between the two countries several times prior to the last year attack on the Turkish naval base.

Turkish security experts say that concurrence of the two attacks is not accidental and rather signifies the link between the PKK and Tel Aviv. They also believe that the PKK has attacked on the navy base at the request of the Zionist regime.
