Russia to Provide Weapons to Pakistan in Bid to Fight Terrorism

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov vowed that his country will supply the armed forces of Pakistan with a number of unspecified weapons in an effort to boost ties in countering terrorism.

He made his remarks on Wednesday during a two-day state visit to the country in a bid to strengthen diplomatic relations and increase Russia’s reputation in the region.

Aside from providing weaponry, the country said it will begin joint exercises with Pakistan to toughen its military presence at sea and in the mountains.

“We have confirmed that we stand ready to strengthen the anti-terrorist potential of Pakistan, including by supplying Pakistan with special military equipment,” Lavrov remarked, without providing details on the equipment. “This serves the interests of all states of the region.”

Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Russian government said it will provide more doses of Sputnik-V vaccine to Pakistan, and it will look into the possibility of setting up a vaccine plant in the country.
