International Relations of Afghanistan and Its Neighboring Countries


This present research project is focusing on the issue of the relationships between Afghanistan and neighboring countries such as Pakistan, Iran, India and several Central Asian countries after 9/11 and its aftermath. Japan is sharing a huge responsibility, along with the rest of international society, for the purpose of re-building the new Afghanistan nation. We intend to share and prepare basic information on this region and to focus our analysis on the complexity of geopolitical interests.
