Pakistan and the Afghan Conflict 1979-1985: With an Afterword Covering Events From 1985-2001


To the superficial observer, Pakistan’s involvement in the Afghan conflict with the USSR was the outcome of an ideological alliance. This study seeks to establish that the roots of this involvement led away from both Afghanistan and ideology to Pakistan’s neighbor to the east. The question that is central to this study: did Pakistan have the option of signing an agreement with the USSR between 1983 and 1985 that would end the hostilities?
