Abstract: Iran is an immediate neighbour of Pakistan whereas US is one of the giant economic power and has been a strong economic donor for Pakistan. Therefore, maintaining a balanced relationship between these two nations has been extremely mandatory for Pakistan.

Problem Statement: The study examines the US-Iran strained relations in the post Islamic Revolution period and its implications on Pakistan. The research also tries to highlight the weak policy options of Pakistan which remained hindrance for the neutral stance of
Pakistan in Iran-US political dispute.

Methodology: The paper is qualitative in nature and is based on investigation and exploration of different facts to find out the causes of the ambiguities in Pak-US Iran triangle.

Findings: It concludes that the conflicting relations between US and Iran would greatly affect Pakistan. Furthermore, this research suggests that Pakistan needs to neutralize its relation between Iran-US or prefer Iran for the promotion of its national interest since Iran is an immediate neighbour and can benefit Pakistan geo-strategically, geo-politically and socio-culturally.

Recommendations: Pakistan must prioritize Iran in the process of forging  cordial and meaningful ties with the US since Iran is the immediate neighbour, an Islamic country and there are so many areas of convergence in Pak-Iranian relations which benefit Pakistan in many ways.
