Pak curbing terror funding: Russia
New Delhi: The Russian envoy to India, Nikolay Kudashev, said on Monday that Pakistan has taken “serious measures” to curb terror financing and shown the desire to be a part of global and regional efforts to fight the menace. His remarks come as ties between Russia and Pakistan appear to grow. In September last year, the two countries held a twoweek long military exercise — DRUZBA 2017 — focusing on counter- terrorism operations to boost bilateral defence ties. Mr Kudashev, however, said it would not be correct to say that Russia was getting closer to Pakistan as Moscow’s relations with New Delhi “are unique and second to no one”.
