Russia TRAINS Pakistan Army for ATTACKS on BORDER
Russian forces arrived in Pakistan for their first ever joint military operation, military spokesperson said.
The move comes amid increasing defence ties between Moscow and Islamabad, which is believed to be considering buying advanced Russian warplanes.
The joint military drill is seen as another step in their military cooperation and indicates a steady growth in their bilateral relationship after ties were marred for decades by Cold War rivalry.
Over the last 15 months, the chiefs of Pakistan’s Army, Navy and Air Force travelled to Russia. The flurry of high-level exchanges between the two nations resulted in the signing of a deal for the sale of four MI-35 attack helicopters to Islamabad. Pakistan is also exploring buying Su-35 fighter jets from Russia, its media reported recently.
