This research paper is aimed at finding the long run consequences (for Pakistan and Afghan¬istan) of investment on Chabahar. Chabahar is an alternative to any other route from Pakistan that connects South Asia with Central Asia. However, the research found out it as beneficial to diversify the transit routes of Afghanistan. In the long run Iran would connect south and central Asia bypassing both Afghanistan and Pakistan and directly connecting Chabahar to Central Asian Region (CARs). To do so, Iran would undermine the security of cargo in Afghanistan or provide more facilities, cheap transit fees, and better infrastructure. This will consequently decrease the geo economic, geopolitics and Geo strategic importance of Afghanistan as a whole and will limit Pakistan.
