The statement added that the Russian Ground Forces Commander said that Pakistan is a geo-strategically important country and Russia is keen to expand its existing bilateral military to military cooperation.
On a related note, Moscow struck a defense cooperation agreement with Islamabad. The 2014 agreement was finalised, when Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu visited Pakistan. It was the first visit by a Russian defense minister to Pakistan since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
The agreement provides for exchange of information on politico-military issues; cooperation for promoting international security; intensification of counter-terrorism and arms control activities among many, according to a report published in Dawn.(ANI)
