Pak curb­ing ter­ror fund­ing: Rus­sia

The Asian Age - - Nation -

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”.
