Pakistan as SCO member state ....... future aspects

     Pakistan in 1950 broke its relations with Republic of China or Taiwan and was among the first to recognize People Republic of China. Over a period of time, China has developed itself as one of the mightiest powers on world theater. Silent and stable China has played its role in most convincing manner. Pakistan is having long history of mutual understanding, friendship and respect with China. Present  visit of China's Premier to Pakistan and signing of billions of dollars economical deals will further strengthen the ties.
    Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) formed in 2001 between five Asian countries has now developed as   one of the most powerful organizations. However, Pakistan is at Observer role same as India, Mongolia and Iran but there are chances that China would help Pakistan to become Member State.
   SCO as strong International Organization 
Importance of SCO can be analyze from the opening statement of of President of Kazakhstan in 2005, in which he stated “The leaders of the states sitting at this negotiation table are representatives of half of humanity.” International recognition of SCO can be analyze from this fact that ; SCO is having observer states in General Assembly, European Union, ASEAN, Common wealth of independent states and OIC.
Military Activities :  Peace Mission Military Exercises in 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2009 were successfully conducted between the member states of SCO. Although organization has never shown any hostile intentions against any country, these war games are sign of mutual understanding between member  states.
Economical Cooperation:  China announced a loan of 10 billion US $ in 2007 for member states to regulate the economical  activities in the region. May be this organization will developed as independent international banking system (however its to early to comment on this, but its a possibility). Member states China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan (central Asian Region) are mineral resources rich nations of the world.

There are increasing perception in the international media that Obama ‘s Afghanistan strategy is not working. American’s public opinion is rising against Afghan war. A number of basic goals were set up by Obama’s administration through Counterinsurgency strategy (COIN) an year ago. But, none of them is about to achieved.

Stabilizing Afghanistan.

The first goal was stabilization of Afghanistan while pursuing a more effective civilian strategy. The main focus was on securing major civilian populated areas, agricultural areas and transportation routes. It was said that operation would be conducted in such a manner that there would be minimum causalities. Number of civilian’s causalities in 2010 has increased to 31%, where children causalities were prominent.

Weed Out Corruption And Improve Governance.

It was second major goal set up by COIN, however, ground realities are totally. A recent survey by Integrity Watch Afghanistan (IWA) shows sharp increase in corruption in Afghanistan society. Afghan people are suffering from twin handicap, poverty and militancy.

Reach Out Moderate Factions Of Militants And Fighters Alongside Of Taliban.

At some part of Afghanistan where militants have laid down their weapons and renounced violence in response to government aid and amnesty were treated with humiliation. Therefore, they are joining back the insurgents. This is a major blow against Karzai government.

ANA and ANP trained and equipped by Americans.

Afghan National Army (ANA) and Afghan National police (ANP) were considered as major contributor in future. But, they are ill equipped and their combat efficacy remained low.

American soldiers and ANA soldiers are also having big trust deficit. Under such circumstances, Pakistan seems to be major player for peace in Afghanistan. But, Americans have shown major trust deficit and the recent example is documents disclosed by WikiLeaks. In the nutshells Obama’s Afghanistan Strategy is a big big failure.

WikiLeaks is a classical example of international blackmailing. Publishing battle logs of Afganistan war, without in knowledge of complete picture is not freedom of expression, rather it is intensional carelessness..
