This article aims to examine Indo–Pakistan relations to assess their implications for the Greater Middle East (GME). Both countries are frantically engaged in deploying their military and nuclear capabilities, resources as well as extra-regional connections, with an intention to alter the balance of power in one's favor, as this is evident from their close contest for enhancing the level of strategic cooperation with the United States, especially after 9/11. Moreover, the deep-seated historic hostility between India and Pakistan has produced a peculiar geopsychology among ruling elites to outmaneuver the other in order to contain each country's political, economic, and strategic influences in GME rather than to contribute to peace, prosperity, and stability there. This article also aims to explore interaction and interconnectedness between the three core concepts—geopolitics, geoeconomics and geopsychology—while evaluating Indo–Pakistan engagement with GME to advance and safeguard their respective manifold national interests.
