Russia and Pakistan Draw Closer for the First Time Since Cold War

Cooperation in the defence sector boosted up between Pakistan and Russia when the two nations decided to conduct military exercises in collaboration with each other. This is a clear sign of the two erstwhile foes coming together. The two countries decided to shed off their baggage of mistrust and dissonance when they met in Moscow. Pakistan defence Minister Khwaja Asif and Russian defence minister Sergei Shoigu shook hands before and after the agreement was signed. The Russian praised Pakistan for their efforts at tackling terrorism and drug-smuggling.

The two sides have mutually agreed to boost up cooperation in terms of defence industry and military training. There is to be an increased military cooperation between the two nations when it comes to training personnel for defence as well as in terms of importing arms and ammunitions. Military exercises are to be conducted by the two nations on a joint basis now.

The two sides agreed not to use force in resolving mutual issues. Diplomatic dialogues are to be used at all fronts. As a mark of respect, the Russian government has said 'no' to embargoes it imposed. The way to defence supplies being exchanged by the two nations is now clear.

The two sides agreed on the amenability of a multi-polar world to world peace. International relations are going to be smoothly balanced in this case.

The Russian defence minister’s visit to Pakistan in 2014 was being seen as an effort to garner support from countries in favour of Russia  for the increasing tensions between pro-Russian rebels and forces from Ukraine.
