The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

Krem­lin spokesman Dmitry Peskov stated on Wed­nes­day that Rus­sia at­taches great im­por­tance to counter-ter­ror­ist co­op­er­a­tion with Pak­istan as a key player in the field.

"Pak­istan is one of the key coun­tries in the fight against ter­ror­ism. In this re­gard, Rus­sia, of course at­taches great im­por­tance to co­op­er­a­tion with Pak­istan," Peskov told re­porters.

Ear­lier in Jan­uary this year, the Rus­sian Army's Com­man­der-in-Chief Oleg Sa­lyukov had an­nounced that Rus­sian ground forces will hold its first ever mil­i­tary ex­er­cises with Pak­istan in the com­ing year. A Rus­sian del­e­ga­tion had also vis­ited Pak­istan last month to dis­cuss the sale of mil­i­tary hard­ware and agree­ment to en­hance de­fence co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the two coun­tries.
