There is good news for Pakistanis as Pakistan and Russia signed military cooperation agreement.
According to recent Pakistan Russia military cooperation pact, Pakistani troops will get training in Russia. Russians are interested to fill the gap that is vacant after the suspension of US security related aid to Pakistan.
Pakistan Russia military cooperation pact talks were headed by visiting Russian Deputy Defense Minister Col Gen Alexander Fomin and Defence Secretary Zamirul Hassan Shah.
Earlier, Russia started delivering Mi- 35 assault helicopters to Pakistan Army Aviation Corps. Pakistan ordered the military helicopters from Russia back in 2015.
In 2017, Russia already handed over four Mi-35M helicopters to Pakistan Army Aviation Corps. The delivery of these choppers likely took place in Russia. However, the transfer of gunships took place later.
In 2016, Pakistan and Russia also made a $153 million helicopter deal during Raheel Sharif’s visit to Russia. An official contract was signed at the Pakistan Army General Headquarters in Rawalpindi in August 2015.
