Expanding Ties With Russia
The visit of the Pakistani leader to Eastern Economic Forum in Russia is based on the invite President Putin gave to him at the meeting of Shanghai Cooperation Organisation. Putin asked him to visit as a special guest to the forum.
During the talk, PM Imran expressed his intent to improve ties between Russia and Pakistan since the Cold War was long over. The PM mentioned that throughout the Cold War Pakistan was in alliance with the US. And ever since both the countries have been remained in different camps. But now its time for things to change.
Military Cooperation And Trade With Russia
He also showed interest in military cooperation with Russia saying that they have already somewhat progressed in it. The defense forces of Russia and Pakistan are in cooperation and hope to deepen their contacts.
“But, yes, we are looking for arms from Russia, and I know our military is already in touch with the Russian military,” said Khan.
Besides defense, PM also plans to develop trade between Russia and Pakistan.
“Russia is an energy-surplus country. Pakistan has shortages in energy, so we hope to talk on those areas. We already are. Apart from defense, we want to also improve our trade in other areas with Russia,” the Pakistan premier was quoted as saying.
