Afghanistan is Pakistan’s most proximate neighbor. Being Muslim countries both are tended to have brotherly relations. But throughout the history it has been very difficult for both to keep the ball rolling. The story of Pak-Afghan relations is not an interesting one. At times it seems that both have developed great confidence upon each other and now they have become confident friend. But suddenly some evil spirit comes and takes away all that was good. In this study a serious effort has been made to develop a thesis upon the main and root causes of this uneasy movement of bilateralism. Also this effort aims at devising a strategic position for Pakistan in the current state of affairs. A descriptive and analytical research method is applied.
