“Pakistan-Russia Relations: Is there a New Trajectory?”
Organised by: Islamabad Policy Research Institute, (IPRI)
Date and Venue: August 1, IPRI Hall, Islamabad
Guest Speaker: Ambassador Alexey Dedov, Ambassador of the Russian Federation
Historically, Pakistan-Russia relations have witnessed many ups and downs. Their relations saw some signs of improvement in the shape of signing of the first bilateral Agreement on Cultural and Scientific Cooperation in 1965. This was followed by Moscow’s crucial intermediary role in ending the Indo-Pakistan war through the Tashkent Agreement. The setting up of the Steel mill in the 1970s was another tangible help provided by the former Soviet Union to Pakistan.
