Quietly, without any of -the foot-tsinping excite-, went of the VitxNam and Cyprus crises, something al-moat ai disconcerting haa been hippening in the middle stretch of Ana that lies, be tween those two flash-poii The anti-Communist allian along Russia's southern which Britain and the United Stales have spent more than 10 years trying to construct Is coming apart at the seams. CENTO the Central Treaty Organization has lour members: Turkey. Persia, Pakistan and Britain. The United States, though not formally a full member, take! an active part in most of Its committees, and, as usual, puts up most of the cash. '.There used to be another member: Iraq, whose capital Baghdad was the headquarters of what we then knew ' as the Baghdad Pact. But In 19M a revolution pulled down King Feisal and his pro-British prima minister, Nuri es Said, and took Iraq out of the pact. There were a good many reasons why, but you could sum them up simply: British and American global purposes no longer 'coincided with the national interests of Iraq. PAKISTANI-LED The same reasoning is threatening to break up CENTO today. The man behind. Jt this time Is Pakistan's President Ayub Khan and if be does not do it, the Pakistani : opposition will certainly do It for blmif they aver get the . chance. ' . ' ' ... President Ayub la becoming mora and mora doubtful (and 1 think be la right) whether ' Pakistan's national ' interest are served by membership of Its western sponsored alliances. He believes there la no real danger of an attack 'from Russia' .or' China. He does have at real quarrel with India over the contested territory of Kashmir. ' Yet ha finds that bis country It part of two alliances against Russia and China SEATO to the east. CENTO " to the' west While his west, am allies not only refuse to twist India's arrn about Kashmir (and there I think we are right: we hav tried before end k does not work) they ar giving India military aid t twice the rate the United States gives It to Pakistan, uirnun rntramv. , I .MM. If .... So while SEATO to' his east denounces the Chinese Communists as menace to ' peace. President Ayub la busy making friends with them. To his west, while CENTO still claims to offef a bulwark ; against Russia, he is busy turning the bulwark inte as! empty shell. $ Lata last month there was : i grand summit meeting of Turkey, Persia and Pakistan, i It was held In Istanbul, Hi Turkey, but the iniative was Pakistan's. Out of tba meet-' tag came aa equally grand scheme (or economic and cultural co-operation, Tba three j countries arc setting up a re-... gional planning committee .' under council of ministers, i with .headquarters . for th ' time being in Toheran. They . .will be looking (or ways the ; three countries can work to- gether. in promoting trade ' and tourism, building road )" and rail links, setting up a ' common airline, and sharing . m Persia' petroleum Slippers, Indus-'and try. And so on excellent We which no on in th West ' could possibly object to, if It waa our business, which It is not But th point I that most of these schemes could Just as well hav been car- ' ried out inside CENTO. As the danger of a Russian in-, vaiton grows less imminently ! threatening. It la economic projects like thi that could make CENTO meaningful. But,, as th Pakistanis m- phasiz very strongly, th new set-up has nothing to do wlth ' CENTO whatever. REAL ADVANTAGES " ' It has eoma real economic advantaaea over CENTO. CENTO has already started r many projects, nut reawan and Persia in particular do ; not think they are enough, A nw organization will not j automatically- general more economic aid from Britain or i the United. State. But : 1 ! might look much more artrac 4 lve- to aid-giver - lik the i United Netions (not to My the Russians) than a cold-war. .( But Pakistan - at least- 4 f looking b y n d conomica, President Ayub It dreaming 5 of a new Moslem block.Th ' Istanbul summit meeting talks- ad a lot of the "common herU tage" of the three countries (to which Pakistan would Ilka .to add a fourth, non-aligned, 7r7r.V -ir -Mv Moslem aatioa Afghanistan). -' This may only be dream. As we Europeans have often proved, countries are easily divided by religion but not easily united by it. Pakistsn and Persia certainly have a lot In common; but Turkey has lor two generations deliberately looked away Irora Asia and toward Europe. Islam is no longer ha state religion. " The answer could I ia. Cyprus. If Turkey's western lends cannot ensure that the there is at least toler, bl to the Turks, lb Turk ight decide that they too would serve their national interest beat by drifting away from the West. Turkey's leading pro government newspaper has hinted as much. It may be bluffing. It may not.
