Pakistan celebrates 70th anniversary of diplomatic relations with Russia
In a statement on the eve of 70th anniversary of the establishment of the Diplomatic Relations between the two countries today, Foreign Office Spokesperson said that both have similar stakes in durable peace and stability in their common neighbourhood, and harbour shared aspirations for regional development and prosperity.
In the backdrop of multiple recent developments that have seen Pakistan-Russia relations touch historic new heights, the event is being celebrated in both countries with great fervour and zeal.
The foreign office said that the upward trajectory is being maintained through sustained high-level interaction through strong institutional mechanisms and cementing cooperation in such diverse fields as trade & commerce; banking & finance; agriculture & industry; defence & security; education and technology, and energy & infrastructure development.
The two countries have also collaborated closely at international forums including the United Nations. Russia has been a strong supporter of Pakistan’s membership of SCO which affords another useful platform for close cooperation on matters of common concern.
Pakistan views Russia as an important global power, a significant development partner, and a salient contributor to regional stability. We believe that long-term multidimensional strategic partnership between the two countries will be mutually beneficial for the people of Pakistan and the Russian Federation and would contribute towards regional peace and stability, the FO spokesperson added.
