“Defense is a main aspect of our (Pak-Russia) ties. The two sides have agreed to multiply the cooperation,” one official said, citing the recent meetings in Islamabad.

The official said the army chief and the civilian leadership will discuss the ‘new defence relationship’ with their counterparts to finalize the future deals.

Recently, Pakistan and Russia had vowed to work together for peace in Afghanistan and supported each other’s ‘regional initiatives.’ During a meeting between Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Russian envoy on Afghanistan Ambassador Zamir Kabulov, the two countries agreed to continue regular consultations on the Afghan peace process and support regional initiatives.

In December, Pakistan had launched a campaign to win over the key neighbours on the Afghanistan issue and regional peace. Foreign Minister Qureshi, accompanied by Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua and senior officials, had gone on a four-nation tour on December 24 as part of the government’s policy of “outreach in the neighbourhood.” They visited Afghanistan, Iran, China and Russia from December 24-26.

Pakistan has always maintained that the solution to the conflict in Afghanistan lied in an Afghan-led and Afghan-owned peace process. International community’s recent consensus to adopt this as the guiding principle to resolve the 40-years old Afghan conflict, vindicated Pakistan’s long held view.

  • Indians have humiliated the Russian jets. While their Mig-21s keep crashing, Pakistani pilots flew Syrian Mig-21s in 70's and brought down Israeli Mirages, bringing pride to the Russian jet.
  • Also, India has been growing very close to the USA. Here's to hoping it continues.
  • When China veto'd the ban on Masood Azhar, Russia did not take concern; the USA, UK and France did.
  • India also upright rejected Russian mediation and lied even saying that Russians made no such offer; the Russian Foreign Ministry itself said to media that they were trying to diffuse tensions.
  • A prominent ex-foreign ambassador of India to Russia, on Russia Today interview, told the Russian anchor to her face that Russians cannot feel India's sorrow because they are living in terror-free environment and haven't felt the terrorism that India did. Goes to show how little India's own foreign ministry even cares or knows about Russia.

A prominent ex-foreign minister of India, on Russia Today interview, told the Russian anchor to her face that Russians cannot feel India's sorrow because they are living in terror-free air conditioned environment on their sofas and haven't felt the terrorism that India did. Goes to show how little India's own foreign ministry even cares or knows about Russia.

We need to boost exports to Russia. Then we can consider an arms deal. Mangoes for guns? Flankers might not meet the PAF's operational needs, maybe the PN's. S400 sounds interesting.
