Russian FM calls on PM in New York

Prime Minister Imran Khan has expressed satisfaction with the steady growth of bilateral cooperation with Russia in diverse areas including trade, energy, investment, security and defence.

The remarks were made in his meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on the sidelines of the 74th UNGA session being held in New York on Thursday.

PM Imran recalled his interaction with President Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit in Bishkek in June and the exchange of views on bilateral, regional and international issues.

He reiterated his invitation for President Putin to visit Pakistan.

The prime minister noted that Pakistan and Russia had maintained close contact following the unilateral and illegal Indian actions of August 5 in occupied Kashmir.

He said India’s belligerent rhetoric and aggressive posture continued to pose a grave risk to regional peace and security which the international community must take serious cognizance of.

The prime minister said the international community must urge India to lift curfew and other restrictions and also play its role in the just resolution of Kashmir dispute.

Views were also exchanged on the Afghan peace process.

PM Imran reiterated that there was no military solution to the conflict in Afghanistan. He said the stalled peace process must be resumed at the earliest to advance the objectives of peaceful, stable and prosperous Afghanistan.
