This article deals with Iran's and Afghanistan's political economic imperatives as part of a medium power's diplomatic theory and practices. It traces the philosophical precepts behind the Shah's and Khomeini's political creed and details the dynamics of conflictive and diplomatic interactions of Iran and Afghanistan with Moslem Arab and Moslem non-Arab states in southwest Asia. An attempt is also made to link these two countries with other countries in Asia such as China, through a modern railway construction in an effort to draw the area more closely into an Asian economic infrastructure. The author concludes that the Iranian experience in diplomacy is a unique one, much more so than that of Afghanistan, although Iran, too, may be tilting further to the USSR.***
