    Pakistan, Russia allies in every sense of word: Putin


    * Russian PM says despite global recession, Pak-Russia trade has improved

    * Gilani, Chinese premier reiterate resolve to further strengthen strategic ties in trade, energy, other areas


    DUSHANBE: Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said that a number of Russian companies were interested in investing in Pakistan’s various sectors. “Pakistan and Russia are allies in every sense of the word,” he maintained.

    Putin appreciated Pakistan’s efforts and sacrifices in the war against terrorism and extremism. He said despite the global recession, the trade between Pakistan and Russia had improved and picked up over the last eight months.

    Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, who met on the sidelines of the ninth Shanghai Corporation Organisation (SCO) Heads of Government Council (HGC) hosted by Tajikistan, deliberated in detail on the prospects as well as the ways and means to further strengthen their relations through increased trade and economic interaction and cooperation in various fields.

    Gilani and Putin, who also discussed the regional situation, were unanimous in their view that peace and security were vital for enhanced economic development and prosperity of the people of this region. Gilani was assisted by Water and Power Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, Petroleum and Natural Resources Minister Syed Naveed Qamar, Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir and other senior officials. Putin expressed his sympathies and condolences over the huge losses caused by the recent floods in Pakistan and said Russia was quick to respond and provide support to the government of Pakistan in its relief and recovery efforts.

    Gilani thanked the Russian PM for his country’s support and assistance after the devastating floods hit Pakistan in the summer, affecting over 20 million people. Gilani also extended invitation to his Russian counterpart for an official visit to Pakistan.

    The PM recalled his last meeting with the Russian leader in Beijing in October 2009 and noted good progress in the bilateral relations, including high-level contacts.

    Mutually-beneficial: He said, “Pakistan seeks a comprehensive partnership with Russia and is prepared to invest in developing mutually-beneficial relations between the two countries for the shared goals of peace, stability and prosperity in the region.”

    The PM said he believed that their interests at most of the strategic, political and economic planes converged, adding that there were complementarities that must be utilised optimally to mutual advantage.

    Strategic ties: Also on Thursday, Prime Minister Gilani and Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao reiterated the resolve to further strengthen their strategic ties in trade, economy, energy, defence and other areas.

    The two leaders, who had a brief meeting on the sidelines of the ninth SCO Heads of Government Council (HGC) meeting, had a frank exchange of views on a variety of subjects, including bilateral relations, regional situation as well as matters of international importance.

    Both the leaders noted that Pakistan and China enjoyed exemplary relationship with high degree of mutual trust, understanding and convergence of views on various regional and international issues.

    Premier Gilani thanked the Chinese premier for his country’s generous assistance in the relief and recovery efforts of the Pakistan government as well as their support in the reconstruction of affected areas. The PM said the year 2011, being the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Pakistan and China, should jointly be celebrated with year-long events, as the Pakistan-China Friendship Year. app

    I tried to find the news on any of international newspapers . Not even a single major news paper reported it so we should all rubbish it as Pakistani media propaganda.

    It's about time. The Af-Pak region is going to be the site of the first Great Game of the 21st century. China got a headstart in the 70s with the Karakorum Highway, U.S. immersed herself in the region to fight WOT, India is emerging as a global power and is also playing her hand in A'Stan, and now Russia is joining the game as well.

    All the big players are at the table. The only question now is: who has the winning hand?

    If we're lucky, this Great Game will have the same result as the Great Game in Poland in 1795 :)

    pakistani always hype the news in there favor.
    this is what Russian media is reporting

    Transcript of the beginning of the meeting:
    Vladimir Putin: Mr Prime Minister, ladies and gentlemen, I’m very glad to see you again.
    First of all, I’d like to again express my condolences over the disastrous flood that ravaged your country last summer. Russia promptly responded to this disaster and attempted to supply top priority aid.
    We are still affected by the aftermath of the global economic crisis. It has damaged our bilateral economic ties as well. However, the level of our trade has been recovering in the first eight months of this year. A number of Russian companies are directly interested in expanding their presence on the Pakistani market and cooperating with their partners in Pakistan.
    All of us have witnessed the recent anti-terrorist efforts of the Pakistani leadership. We are your allies in this struggle without reservation. I’m very glad to see you. I hope we’ll have the opportunity to discuss all issues of our bilateral relations.
    Yusuf Raza Gilani (as translated): Your Excellency, first of all I’d like to thank you for today’s meeting. After we met in Beijing in October, our relations and exchange of visits have been on the upsurge. Our oil minister visited Moscow recently, as well as the economy minister. Our relations have been developing fast.
    Taking this opportunity, I’d like to thank you for your assistance during the calamities in Pakistan. About 20 million people remain homeless in our country.
    We are doing all that we can to counter extremism and terrorism. We will not make any concessions. There are and will be huge human losses – our soldiers – on this road. We have lost many more lives than the NATO countries. We have also sustained economic damage.

    Pakistan and Russia, allies my @ss!

    Nice spin put on the original quote by the Pakistani media.

    When nations become "allies in this struggle" with Pakistan, we all know what results. For a hint: take a look at your friendly-neighbourhood drone in FATA, and now coming to you at a 'theatre' in Balochistan.

    Rest well, Pakisthan.

    For some reason, Pakistanis are jumping up and down with excitement at this news. I don't think they understand what it means to be an "ally" of Pakistan:

    Russia can't stand by while U.S. has all the fun. They too want a piece of Pie-stan.

    Putin might have said this or he might not have said this..
    but it is clear that India and US defense trade is growing day by day and as a result Russia has to find other buyers for her defense equipments..

    There are two ways in which we can let jibes out of our body. One is through the mouth using the tongue and by exercising the vocal chords, the other is though the arse. Pakistan is such a fuc*&^$ loser that it believes in talking through the arse more than the mouth. Pakistan & Pakistanis can, should & would rot in hell. Just a matter of time!

    Russia seems overly interested in improving relations with Pakistan, First "Allies in every sense" of the word, And now just a day ago it was "Most Important partner in South Asia and Islamic World".

    I can understand why Russia and Pakistan would improve relations, India- US relations are growing and there is a clear tilt towards the US by India and Russia is looking for buyers for its equipment, Pakistan is looking for not just military equipment but also diplomatic support from Russia and China to counter an overbearing US.

    The problem for Russia is that it has little to offer Pakistan that it does not already have available, China provides numbers and the US/EU still provide the cutting edge technology, Russia would have to compete with Chinese costs and US/EU technology to win contracts in Pakistan. I also doubt that Pakistan would improve relations with Russia at the expense of China.

    Ilyushin-76 is no longer made in Russia. The newest ones we got were from Uzbekistan.
