Russia And Pakistan Discussed The Directions Of Industrial-Technological Cooperation And Investment Partnership

 On November 30, in Moscow, under the chairmanship of the Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Denis Manturov and the Minister of Defense of Pakistan, Khuram Dastgir Khan, the 5th meeting of the Intergovernmental Russian-Pakistan Commission on Trade-Economic and Scientific-Technical Cooperation was held.

Denis Manturov expressed confidence that holding the meeting of the Commission would give an additional impetus to the strengthening of mutually beneficial trade and economic ties between Russia and Pakistan.

The head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation stressed that Pakistan is an important partner of our country in various fields of cooperation, including electric power, oil and gas supplies, aviation, automotive,

During the meeting of the Commission a meeting was held in a narrow composition. We thoroughly discussed prospects and new directions in industrial and technological cooperation and investment partnership. In the energy sector, issues related to the implementation of the North-South project have been worked out. I would particularly like to note that in October an agreement on the supply of liquid gas was signed - this is the first step to the subsequent possibility of providing Pakistan with gas. As for industrial projects, an agreement was reached to continue cooperation in important areas in those areas where we have joint projects,

said Denis Manturov.

In turn, the Minister of Defense of Pakistan, Khurram Dastgir Khan, positively assessed the prospects for expanding trade and economic cooperation with Russia and the implementation of joint projects.

In the next two months we will continue substantive negotiations on a number of sensitive issues and, I hope, in the sphere of trade we will solve the problems with gas tariffs,

reported Khurram Dastgir Khan

The sides noted with satisfaction the constructive nature of political contacts between Russia and Pakistan, including at the highest level, the productive interaction of the two countries in international organizations, as well as the coincidence or similarity of approaches to resolving most of the topical issues on the international and regional agenda.
