It is far from comforting when a supposed “ally” in the war on terror (Pakistan) sends its president to go visit the world’s foremost state sponsor of Jihadist terrorism (Iran) and he suggests that the two countries forge closer economic ties…This is especially disturbing given that Pakistan already produces nuclear weapons and Iran desires them…
