Pakistan And Russia Are Getting Closer

Pakistan is strengthening its relationship with Russia while facing increasing tension with the United States in connection with their efforts to fight the Islamist militants in the region. Washington views Islamabad as an undependable partner in combating terrorist groups.

The Pakistani government purchased four Russian Mi-35 attack helicopters. The country did not disclose the acquisition price for the helicopters. Pakistan and Russia have been negotiating a deal over the past year.

Last year, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu visited Pakistan and discussed bilateral defense cooperation with the leaders of the South Asian country.

In June, Pakistani Army Chief of Staff General Raheel Sharif visited Russia. He visited Russia’s arms expo, which features Russia’s advanced weapons and military equipment. After his visit, Moscow sent a draft contract for the delivery of four attack helicopters to Pakistan.

Currently, Islamabad has several Mi-17 helicopters, which were delivered by the United States. The Pakistani government is using these helicopters to help combat the Islamist militants in the region.

Zafar Hilaly, a former senior Pakistani diplomat, commented, “Pakistan has decided it is no longer an American client state. The government  “decided that although America will remain important, it must have other alternatives.”

During the Shanghai Cooperation (SCO) summit in the City of Ufa, Russia last month, Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. He expressed his desire for his country to have a “multidimensional relationship,” which include commerce, defense, and energy. Pakistan is now a member of SCO.

Pakistan-Russia pipeline deal

Earlier this month, Russia approved the draft of the intergovernmental agreement with Pakistan regarding the construction of the North-South gas pipeline from the city of Karachi to Lahore.

RT Global Resources, a subsidiary of Rostec, a Russian state corporation, will handle the construction of oil and liquefied natural gas pipelines and terminals in the South Asian country. The estimated cost of the project is $3 billion, according to Rostec.

Pakistan and Russia are expected to sign an agreement to begin the pipeline project next month, according to officials from both countries.The pipeline is expected to be completed by 2018, and it could transport 2 billion cubic feet of gas per day.

Changing geopolitical dynamics

Political observers noted that the strengthening relationship between Pakistan and Russia was a major shift for both countries amid the changing geopolitical dynamics. During the 1980s, Pakistan fought alongside with the United States to defeat the Soviet forces that occupied Afghanistan. On the other hand, Russia established a strong relationship India, Pakistan’s neighbor, and long-time rival.

Vladimir Sotnikov, a senior research associate at the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Institute for Eastern Studies, commented the Russia’s agreement with Pakistan is “very important from a geopolitical point of view.” He added, “Russia is trying to enter this market and compete with China and the US.”

Currently, the United States is establishing a good relationship with India as a counterbalance to China. Washington considers Beijing a strategic competitor, which encouraged Russia and Pakistan to improve their relations.

China and Russia are investing in South Asian country to promote economic development. Both countries also want to protect their southern underbellies against the entry of extremist groups from Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Last week, China and Pakistan signed 20 cooperation agreements worth 10.35 billion yuan or $1.6 billion to strengthen their relationships. Both governments also released the Karamay Manifesto for the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

CPEC is a major development project that would connect the Gwadar Port in southwestern Pakistan and Xinjiang, the northwestern autonomous region of China through a network of highways, railways, and pipelines to transport oil.

Pakistan expected to maintain its close ties with the United States

Political experts believed that Pakistan would maintain its close relationship with the United States despite its decision to improve its relations with Russia.

They emphasized that the United States is the biggest supplier of military aid and equipment to Pakistan. Washington already provided $31 billion worth of civilian and military aid as well as reimbursements to Islamabad since 2002, according ti the Congressional Research Services.

  1. Innocent world knows it that ISIS is created by USA and MOSSAD not pak and tell me where Musharraf and naseerullah babar write you are laying Mr.

  2. i am not a member of ISI but no doubt ISI is our pride and the TTP is bane in Pakistan because they are killing our people even our children and attacking our forces and Afghan Taliban are our headache.

  3. Plz answer me y u people kept usama bin Laden in Abbot abad?????????.If it was not there then y ur foregn office accepted that Osama was there

  4. I know u r a member of isi, u call ttp as terrorist group and call afghan taliban as mujahideen. When a pakistani soldiers dies , u call it martyr when an afghan soldier dies for his country u call him kafir , or agent of America.

  5. All the world knows that pk is the factory of terrorists. Even musharraf , naseerullah babar wrote in there books that taliban r there babies, now all the world know about reality, by this kind of discussions u can’t prove pk an innocent country.taliban all high rank leaders living in peshawar, murree, karachi and quetta, injured taliban also treating there.zarbe ghazab operation is just a drama, actually game is changing, more then 7000 isis militants r under training in North waziristan. When there training finish operation will also finish.

  6. Johar, Pakistan has smart lobbyists. the US taxpayer is broke. Our Congress people waste our money on inane issues. The reason why the US is not worried about Pakistan getting too close to Russia is because India buys about $ 100 billion of equipment from Russia each year and the Russians will never sell Pakistan any military hardware and gear that could jeopardize their easy foreign exchange earnings. Pakistan should exercise caution when dealing with Russia and Iran. Both are staunch allies of India. Most educated Americans recognize that Pakistan is a good US ally however the terrorists led by Al queda and some extremists have sullied our friendship and partnership.

    Pakistan needs to expand its industrial base, and become a viable economic entity before they will earn respect from other countries.

  7. Pakistan is one of the world’s most powerful military with a trained standing army that preempts enemies by surging special forces who cripple enemas and then the main stream armed forces storm in and capture territories and enemy POWs.

    Pakistan and India have fought 7 wars and skirmishes. In each skirmish Pakistan defeated India handily and won huge tracts of land. In 1971 Pakistan captured 3 million Indian POWs, captured Dehlli and about 57 % of Indian territory and then had to give it back because India went and cried to the UN who pleaded with Pakistan to return everything.

    in 1986 Pakistan captured Moscow and 70 % of Russian territory but gave it back after Russia cried foul.

    Pakistani Armed forces are legends in their own mind.

  8. Hasan, thank you very much for your kind words. U.S. Policy has always been short Sighted. Even though behind the scenes the Pentagon and ISI/ army work very closely. I’m looking forward to hearing more about the economic corridor that China is building. Pakistan trusts China only.

  9. NO one in Pakistan is ‘enjoying’ US tax payer money. USA is broke because it supports Israel non stop (100 percent), forgive ALL of her loans and spends Trillions of Dollars on Wars it starts on behalf of those who control USA (Not White House…Not US Congress).

    I just told another junk that US spent Six Trillion Dollars on wars in started in Iraq and Afghanistan. You even don’t know any thing about USA (if its your country). You have no clue who controls your country and how its run. You only earn minimum wage…and make ends meet. Go develop some knowledge about your own country. Will ya?

  10. BS…Its USA and Europe who are sew er dumbs of global murders and terrorists. You sh it hole Bas tards kill millions of innocent humans to pursue your ‘strategic’ goals and plunder natural resources using fake terrorism and ideological concepts. You plundered whole of Africa, Asia and now Middle East and West Asia. But this one last adventure costed you more than 6 Trillion dollars so far. It has bankrupted your economies (EU is on verge of collapse…USA is next – 10 more years may be). But your thirst of blood never ends

    Pakistan is USA only ally in the whole world. It earned USSR’s enmity when Gary Powers (google him) took off from its airbase to spy on USA (The practice had been going on for too long USSR did not know). Then Pakistan helped USA become the sole super power by defeating USSR..Then Pakistan helped USA fight its own creation Al Qaeeda and OBL….And invited terrorism on its soil for 15 long years now

    And a S OB like your self is barking what you POS? You were born and raised in a garbage dumb by your sh itty sewer parents…you even do;t know your real dad….and you are saying what sh it hole?

  11. TTP is under control of CIA and AFGHAN intelligence and they are using them to make our country unstable like CIA is using ISIS against iran backed Syria and Iraq.

  12. Where usama and mula omer killed and where the new chief of taliban selected, where the new chief was addressing to taliban to continue war absolutely in pakistan in one big mosque in balochistan, why haqqani son killed in islamabad, this means that he was living there .so many questions. Why the US half of there weapons given to pakistan which they were using in Afghanistan.

  13. WAIT a minute…is that YOU, Sabu? What the hell??!! I don’t pay you $3 a day to stay in your basement cubicle and post online! Get dinner ready..NOW!!!

  14. China economy about to explode when bubble bursts…Russian economy sinking fast…Pakistan (wait, they HAVE an economy?)
    Quick…name 2 things in your house that came from Pakistan

  15. Who created this guy….USA and not Pakistan.

    According to US Defense Secy and CIA testimonies before Congress around 2004-2007 time frame, He was dead long ago either in Tora Bora or due to his illness. US provided no proof if Osama was alive at the time of raid in a house where his wives were living. No proof. It was only to close his chapter. That’s it

    In early 80s, Osama came to Afghanistan on a US C-130 after being personally selected by Bush Senior. Why Bush Sr is not charged to begin with?

    If Osama (a family friend of Bush Senior and Bush Junior) had committed any crime, why he was not charged in a US court of law or in an International court (even in his absence). US never charged him with any crime. Never. But he was declared as most wanted man.

    Any country can declare any one most wanted. Bush Jr and Cheney are most wanted by Afghans and Iraqis. Bush Senior is most wanted by Iraqis and Serbs. Kissinger is most wanted in some South American countries. Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney cannot leave USA any more. There are cases against them in Canada and German courts.

    Get to facts..but how can you? You are a brain dead only good at useless key strokes.

  16. Read what I said. You could not have become SOLE Super Power if Pakistan would not have defeated USSR.

    Now we have defeated the whole of NATO in Afghanistan. While NATO generals were too busy drinking and scre wing females from FL. lolz

  17. US created Osama …not Pakistan. According to US Defense Secy and CIA testimonies before Congress around 2004-2007 time frame, Osama was dead long ago either in Tora Bora or due to his illness. US provided no proof if Osama was alive at the time of raid in a house where his wives were living. No proof

    Osama came to Afghanistan on a US C-130 after being personally selected by Bush Senior. Why he’s not charged to begin with?

    If Osama (a family freind of Bush Senior and Bush Junior) had committed any crime, why he was not charged in a court of law. US never charged him with any crime. Never. But he was declared as most wanted man. Any country can declare any one most wanted. Bush Jr and Dick Cheney are most wanted by Afghans and Iraqis. Bush Senior is most wanted by Iraqis and Serbs. Kissinger is most wanted in some South American countries. Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney cannot leave USA any more. There are cases against them in Canada and German courts. Get to facts..but how can you…You are a brain dead zombie only good at useless key strokes.

  18. Its USA, NATO, India and Israel. They have killed millions of innocent humans during last 50-60 years.

    CIA could not survive without ISI help…Yes a huge mistake by ISI to support CIA and USA…two mega terrorist entities. I argee.

  19. I understand things much better than yourself that’s why I wrote what I wrote. And you still could not understand it. Tells me limitations of your brain. I am a global Citizen…I know exactly how US Federal Reserve System works and how its control was taken from US Govt (and Congress) in early 1900s…A US President lost his life when he refused to give control..Next one understood and he agreed..

    You are a little kid…who cannot understand dynamics of your own backyard. This forum is not for faint hearted key stroke happy kids. Go to sleep ….OK…good kid…

  20. It is very sad that most americans see Pakistan through indian angle. I have just come to know now that Indian lobby is 2nd most powerful in US after AIPAC and other israeli lobby groups. We as Pakistanis don’t hate US neither dislike its citizens. The policies of US to cozy up with India just to make it a counterweight to China and ignoring Pakistan and its interests, arming India to its teeth which is severely disturbing the balance of power in south asia just forced Pakistan to get more closer to China and form relationship with Russia.

    Thank you for saying Pakistan Zindabad.

    Peace, Love and Greetings to you & US from Karachi, Pakistan.

  21. You idiot sewer Indian. Mind your language and stop being fowl. You dont have to show your filth everywhere

    First gather facts about Pakistan defense production capabilities and then talk. India is no where near Pakistan both in conventional defense production (Tanks, Aircraft, Military hardware, Navy Submarines) as well as nukes (Pakistan is world’s fourth largest nuclear nation with 100+ more nukes – total about 240 – than India…India is at bottom).

    Who has abused nuke technology so far? USA…and Israel is the next one to threaten the peace. Go figure you idiot junk

  22. (sigh)…do you even UNDERSTAND about currency? The currency is strong when demand is high for the currency, and weak when people don’t WANT it…the US dollar is the strongest currency because it represents STABILITY. Don’t you have stability in Paki…oh, right …never mind!

  23. US has world’s weakest currency. A currency issued by private families and ‘loaned’ out to US Govt. US does not even own her ‘currency’. The currency is not backed by gold…but by 18 Trillion dollars of debt…that’s not strong

    But how would you know these things…you are an Endian. Even most Americans don’t know hard and sad facts about their country

  24. Hey DING-DONG…YOY were the one claiming a “new axis”…with Russia (discredited leader…least trusted in the world, economy sinking due to over reliance on oil, corrupt, cannot afford to implement new technology, etc etc etc)

    Do you consider “new heights” to be nuclear weapons? It is THAT thinking that made us want to keep the “children nations” from having nukes, as they were too irresponsible.

  25. Pakistan is borrowing a page out of Tito’s playbook. This former Yugoslavian leader perfected the art of playing the US and Russia against each other. Why not Pakistan?

  26. Yes…Its Indian and NATO wheels falling off. Pakistan keep moving in new heights

    India has completely dysfunctional armed forces as of today.

    Nato has lost wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. They proved once again that advanced weaponry never wins the war. History keeps repeating itself

  27. ISI is biggest terrorist supporter If you look All terrorist are Muslim who took innocent lives I do not understand why Muslim Religion support Terrorist This is not true Religion

  28. rotflmao!!! You are looking at RUSSIA for technology? hahahah!!!!!!!!!
    Question: Identify THREE things that Russia has invented recently………….. (can’t DO it, huh?)

  29. USA is spending inough money on food stamps for its people,it does not have money to give pakistan in aid,what aid are you even talking about.

  30. who cares about the wheels anymore,it is old technology,we are looking at the future and the technology Russia and china has it is inough to keep Pakistan safe from any threat from anybody.

  31. Islam forbids Killing of Innocent people,it is there religion which teaches Extremism,they are confused about there faith,if they follow Jesus Christ,it will be a suicide,if they follow Moses it will be a suicide,they can only claim to be christians and jews,in fact they cannot follow the foot steps of either Jesus christ or Moses,may peace be upon them both,it is either turn the other cheek or an eye for an eye,either way they will end up in a disaster,the only way for them is Islam,Submission to the will of Allah,which is the proper name of our Creator.

  32. Yes. Pakistan is a dreary backwater, rife with terrorism, corruption, & ignorance. Main export crop is dust, followed closely by grime.

  33. Pakistan hid Osama bin Laden, murderer of thousands…What does Koran say?
    Russia poisons & kills its citizens that ask QUESTIONS of their leaders…What does Koran say?

  34. they ran away from Russia because they choose to be perverted like you,Russia is not Perverted,in Russia you cannot marry your step Mother,in Russia a man cannot marry another man,there is no room for your perverted twisted concocted so called Christianity in Russia,Russia has Morals and Dignity which you dont have.

  35. How is Pakistan surviving? By getting alms from UAE,China, USA, Saudi etc. You are so good at begging and are used to it that you put a roadside beggar to shame. No electricity, no industry, no development but only terrorism is your main business. Now even UAE has kicked you out and accepted Indian friendship. Losers

  36. it is Allah who have defeated the USSR,they did’nt see the red line drawn by Allah,because they did not believe in him,so they fell and break into pieces,every nation and every individual has a red line,when we cross thet red line we come to the end,now there is a red line for USA also,i dont know weather it is in Afghanistan or it is in Pakistan or Iran.

  37. Pakistan is Pakistan,it is not a American Pakistan or a Russian Pakistan,and as far as Extremism is conserned,who is more extremist then the one who says God almighty has begotten a Son,do they have any proof,i would like to see a birth certificate from 2000 years ago.

  38. true Pakistani and Khalid you absolutely right though this kid

    FLOYDINFLORIDA sounds utterly ignorant and idiot. Pakistan doesn’t need US support but USA was needing Pakistan to expand their influence around this region. If Pakistan can easily defeat the Taliban’s why USA can’t do it to ISIS and Taliban’s!!are they in facts the ones who created these terrorist organizations or they too weak to defeat them!!!!for idiots like you I must tell that all Pakistani major cities much less violent than large American cities and even now a days Karachi is relatively peaceful. For Indians it is so funny that they pretending to be some super power but have 800 millions people going for natural needs on railway tracks and making half of their own population untouchables. And they should never forget they had been under rule of other nations for almost 1000 years and instead of wiping out Pakistan they better don’t forget that history can be repeated again.

  39. SUCH ARTICLES ARE JUST FUNNY AND MEANT BY THE WRITERS TO EARN SOME MONEY. RUSSIA WILL ALWAYS BE MORE CLOSE TO INDIA THAN PAKISTAN-MILITARILY AND FROM THE ECONOMIC POINT OF VIEW. MERE SELLING ONE OR TWO HELICOPTERS DOES NOT PROVE OTHERWISE. JUST LIKE AMERICAN POLICY TOWARDS THE ARAB COUNTRIES AND ISRAEL. THE US SELLS AND WILL SELL ARMAMENTS TO THE ARAB COUNTRIES BUT WILL ALWAYS KEEP ISRAEL MILITARILY SUPERIOR.

  40. Dear pakistanis do not believe on Western media now. we are getting to new axis and obviously every pro American media will bash us for it. i m not bothered by indian and American propaganda. they can’t hurt us with words. these are selfish people. so we should b selfish too. i find communist countries more reliable and loyal to their friends than these so called democratics. i prefer china and Russia over india and America.

  41. How do you Know that all? If you have such excitement then go and become an Emotional Speaker, why you here to waste your time in writing fuzzy baseless ugly comments?
    Have you ever visit Pakistan? Have you ever watch some independent media? Have you ever thought the plot of your CIA? No No No No No No No Surely No
    then stop barking !!!!!!!
    You know Nothing ditto

    then stop barking !!!!!!!
    You know Nothing

  43. Money, aircraft carriers as you said powerful military We have seen this in Vietnam Afghanistan Iraq and don’t forget ww2.

  44. Agreed only if you have not read the history. Go and read history. If there is a bit of humanity in you, you’ll prefer to die rather be living as American.

  45. Pakistan is an independent country, not american client state, if American leaders are telling lies to their people then their people must come up and think sensibly. Pakistan need friends not masters. If you cannot defend your country then do not blame any one else.
    You American people are LIVING IN FOOLS PARADISE. America is fast becoming a bagger country and deep under debt. You americans are living on borrowed money how you can claim to give any thing to others?

    Do not get angry and think on ground realities then answer.

  46. except only that Indians don’t fight,it is not in there blood,they are vegetarian’s and they are as sheepish as the cows they worship.

  47. Do you know China has developed a Aircraft Carrier Destroyer Missile,and now there is not much room in the Oceans for these Aircraft Carriers to move freely like they use to.

  48. India was never close to wipe Pakistan off the map,and the seventh Fleet never came to help Pakistan,it is then ,Pakistan realised that this friendship cannot be trusted.India never posed any threat to Pakistan except in the war of 1965,but Pakistan repelled the Attack and went into Indian Territory.

  49. CIA and RAW are two terrorist entities who are supporting and arming TTP in Pakistan. CIA cannot function if it does not have ISI support. So who is a bigger terrorist. CIA

    US is so naive that it will allow her money to be used for Russian equipment. NO

  50. Why Russia aided India against Pakistan? Because of Pakistan’s staunch friendship with USA…because Pakistan was allowing USA to spy on USSR using her airbases …USSR became determined to teach Pakistan a lesson after Gary Powers (who took off from Peshawar) was shot down.

    You have any shame you thankless idiot?

  51. Who told you so? Stop watching damn FOX news. It was designed for Americans to become dumber and dumber. There is a program on FOX which shows Terrorist Muslims in every neighborhood. But none of that happens in USA with 10 Million Muslims living there. Not a single Muslim has been caught on Airports with knives and guns…Its Always always brave white men…who are then politely let go by brave Airport Security force…no?

    Stop proving you are an idiot…we know you are

  52. 75 Billion a year? Really.. Why you lie so much? US gives NO One 75 Billion a year aid to any one. Go read US Budget..its public info you idiot

    Its India and US who train TTP Terrorists in Afghanistan. We kill them daily

  53. Hee hee…Lethal force my foot…what lethal? India is short of 1500 tanks. It has less than 100 fighter aircraft worthy of fighting (the number of airacrft means nothing). Two days ago, NY Times warned India in an article to stay away from War..else its sufferings will not be counted (in conventional terms not nukes where its 50 years behind Pakistan). Here is a summary of India’s lethality

    BAF === Bharti Air Force
    – Fears to fly when and where PAF brings the fight to its home turf
    – Maintains world’s only fleet of flying coffins
    – Maintains her global lead and distinction of best Jet Trash (aka crash) rate, during peace times and wars, since last 50 years
    – Has established new standards and KPIs in jet trashing and flying coffins operations
    – Almost 50 percent of BAF’s flying coffins remain un-operational
    – Forgets to fight during war times with PAF and Chinese Air Force

    BN === Bharti Navy
    Vessels, while sitting or roaming around docks, pop up weekly like unattended boiling eggs
    Have lost nuclear submarines sitting on the dock. A new global record.

    BA === Bharti Army
    — Smiles and welcomes intruding Chinese troops so they enjoy picnics and scout through Bharti occupied Chinese territory

    — Short of 1500 Tanks

  58. So? Read what I said. You could not have become SOLE Super Power if Pakistan would not have defeated USSR.

    Now we have defeated the whole of NATO in Afghanistan. While your generals were too busy drinking and screwing females from FL. lolz

  59. Thank you…that’s why we are on the right side of history by being part of winnin team of 21st century. Anglo Saxon world is bankrupt and Hollow…they are going down…fast

    Japan, India, South Africa and Brazil are on the wrong side of History

  60. I have complete grasp of US History as well as Pakistan-US relationship. I am a personal fan of Nixon and Ronald Reagan. Two great Americans with a vision for their country and NOT servants of Neo Cons and global Illuminati like Roosevelt, Johnson, Bushes and now OBUM.

    You thankless dude…get some facts.

    It was Pakistan who earned USSR enmity when Gary Powers took off from Peshawar and was shot down. USSR fought 1971 war in India against Pakistan. Nixon was smart to intervene in time else third world war would have started right there and then in December 1971 and US was not ready for it.

    It was Pakistan who helped USA establish a relationship with China on Nixon’s insistence. Kissinger flew into China on Pakistani Presidential 707. Read books by Nixon and Kissinger. It was Pakistan who made USA a super power by defeating USSR. Now its Pakistan who has defeated the whole of NATO after you idiots lost 3 Trillion dollars (sorry in accounting its called debt accumulation). THere were zero terrorists in Pakistan. After US attack, Pakistan is full of them..since they are being trained by India and Blackwater in Afghanistan and supplied with NATO equipment. We catch them and kill them on a daily basis. Thank you for sending terrorism our way. But we have become a steel of nation … and you have become pu ssies.

    You have been trying to dismantle Pakistan’s nukes long before they came into existence. But every thing goes wrong your way. So sad…Keep wasting your billions…its our pleasure. We have become world’s fourth nuclear power in the process. Ho ho ho….

  61. most likely they will and work already have begun….jealous much?? can’t see a nation progress and developed or it is only USA’S right to developed?? that shows me how narrow minded you are…what is humanity?? Everything for everybody ..

  62. @FLOYDINFLORIDA:disqus kid plz go do more research…same way you try to wipe off vietnam back in 70’s and what happened you know the rest…if pakistan stop supporting you in afghanistan and choke your supply route you would be begging to get you outta there which is your govt trying to do now…so keep on dreaming. u are that type of american who never set foot off USA and believe what the media says lol…you can’t even control N. korea and thinking about controlling PAK LAND lmao

  63. We rule the world!!! 11 aircraft carriers, most powerful military, causing Pooty-Poot to PAY trolls such as yourself to post on here!

  64. Now Pakistan purchase USA AID money to purchase weapons from China and Russia . American corrupted politician will captured when terrorist Attacked happens in future. Osama Bin laden take Trillions hiding in Pakistan. Pakistan eat American Tax payer money
    and never gave information Terrorist Head ISI biggest supporter network to terrorist camps

  65. what super power tell me what USA gain from WW2 you gain nothing YOU PEOPLE CAN ONLY MaKE Movies OF YOUR FAKE HEROES we create countries from Russia.

  66. Totally agree with Sohail. US needs to figure out who their real friends are, not just now, but historically. Who stood with them during the Cold War and in Somalia…it was Pakistan. Pakistan Zindabad.

  67. It was the US President Nixon that came to aid of Pakistan as India was about to wipe Pakistan off the Map!
    It was and is the US that is giving aid to Pakistan not Russia. It was Russia that gave aid and comfort to India!
    It was the Russian, Indian, and US 7th fleets that met off the coast of India! They had a choice agree to stop the war
    or they would all surly sink each other? East Pakistan won their Independence and the war ended! Thank you very much Pakistan for making the US Great?

  68. Yes, its true we are not WISE like Pooty-Poot…ALL of Warsaw Pact allies RAN from Russia when given the chance…former Soviet Republics can’t STAND Russia (Georgia, Ukraine, Baltics, even Moldova doesn’t respect Pooty-Poot…choosing to IGNORE his food embargo against the West!)

  69. Yeah…American Indians did not have the title to the land..They forgot to present it to invading barbaric Europeans..I agree…What a damn joke

  70. YOU Are a Cessipool…A terrorist nation…who create terrorists and then kill millions of innocent humans…You support terrorist nations like Israel, India….you create AL Qaeeda, ISIS and Boko Haram type terrorist organizations….You have killed millions of innocent humans during last 50 years…not to mention if I go back and summarize your 200+ year bloody history. Just shut up you damn dumb idiot

    Its Pakistan who had defeated USSR (not USA) and made USA sole super power you thank less POS human. I agree it was a huge mistake to help America…we regret it

  71. Ruble now 69 to the dollar! Entire world avoids Russian economy, except for China, using Russia as a GAS STATION. Pooty-Poot GIVES Russian energy away to Russian rivals China so as to not lose face as whole world turns away from Russia. (least-trusted nation, and least-trusted leader)

  72. Pakistan had been a staunch US ally for decades. As a matter of fact it has been with US since it’s independence. Pakistan risked its existence for its friendship with USA. It is a time for the USA to do some soul searching why its old ally is trying to look other friends. Why it would try to leave the most powerful and richest country in the world and try to get closer to a country it helped to destroy in 80s. The Americans need to find out which kind of people are influencing its foreign policy. A foreign policy that led to alienation of almost all Muslim countries of the world.

  73. Well good let Russia take care of them for a while! We need to get out and stay out of this Cess Pool!
    Look, a Russian Pakistan is better than a Muslim Extremist Pakistan!
    Hey Putin take Afganistan back too while you at it!

  74. Marie—it Pakistan that is going to walk away from the the U S at this time. It is Pakistan that does not trust the U S anymore and that is a shame n the U S policy—.
    The Osama drama created by the U S has backfired—and all the name calling has back fired as well—-DO MORE has hit the U S back—. The problem with ‘do more’ was that it was the U S which had to ‘do more’ and not Pakistan.

  75. I pity your ill-knowledge or bullcrap inside your brain, Marie, but there is no such thing as Islamist terrorism, it is Wahhabi terrorism, supported by USA.

  76. There is definitely some warmth in the relations but it is more used as a political hedge by Pakistan and Russia against US and Russia to pressure India to keep Russia as their main defense supplier and not steer away to American or mostly European arms. But as long as Indo-Russian relations stay strategically important any warmth between Russians and Pakistan will have its strategic limits.

  77. Why our indian friends are worried about any Pakistan Russia arms deal, india has a very lethal force of its own that is its force, india’s is very very lethal weapon and it uses against Pakistan successfully.

  78. hello chaywalla aya chay walla
    most wanted criminal
    admitted terrorist and was on americanterroist list
    who said we dot talk tl terrois, we with with then and get CHAY from chay walla declared terrerost

  79. Pakistan military is smart. They collect $ 75 billion a year of foreign aid from the US each year. Of that they give back $ 400 million each year as kickbacks through lobbyists to selct US Congress men and women who vote for the foreign aid.

    The reminder o the money i used to train terrorists, fund terrorist attacks and buy military hardware from China and Russia. smooth !!!

  80. Considering the history, Pakistan does not consider US a reliable partner. Remember, after Russians left Afghanistan, US also packed up and left and Pakistan had to deal with the mess that was created there. India had always been a Russian ally but now US, due to its interests is courting India, so Pakistan has to rethink its alliances too. Anyone who does not understand these geopolitical realities, is a fool and should pay more attention instead of leveling accusations against Pakistan

  81. oh ya , let the U.S. give P stan a billion dollars to buy gas and weapons from Russia. we don’t need to go to war for America . the government is giving the U. S. away . I’m proud to be a politician !

  82. Another person living in the past. The Indians didn’t own all the land and there were wars fought for what is ours. Just like every country on this plant.

  83. P’stan plays the game changing the ally till it takes the territories and then sends the terrorists in the name of Muslim.

  84. Yeah, the United States hands over billions of $$$$ from the U.S. taxpayers to Pakistan and then they use that money to BUY weapons from Russia. What a deal. Another great outcome from Barrack Obama.

  85. We as a country do not and cannot trust USA. Our relationships are full of mistrust. US is a fair weather friend and always fall back in testing time.

  86. Since when did anyone really care about poverty stricken India,the fact is that they spend their money on their military adventures which is of more concern to us.

  87. Begger Indian BhaRaatis. One billion Endians don’t have access to toilets and relieve themselves in open air. Stop spending 300 Billion dollars on your good for nothing armed forces. Use that money to build some toilets for your hungry, filthy, poor and smelly citizens

  88. No one gives a damn what the USA or India thinks. Pakistan will do whatever it is necessary for its safety and security. US changes allies like they change their underwear, so why are they upset when another ally does the same to them? Cry babies.

  89. Our US Govt are broken down and most of Congress person and President are not Patriotic. They are selfish and greedy. They enjoying 10 star lives on Tax payer money. We need to discard both corrupted parties.

  90. When Washington inserted a staunch friend of India as president of Afghanistan, it was facing Pakistan with a pincers.
    Karzai invited in and cooperated with numerous Indian operations in Pakistan. He was educated in India.
    Pakistan’s response was to offer and maintain a safe base for the Taliban from which to attack American troops.
    The elements Pakistan encouraged have also damaged Pakistan, much as these kinds of groups turned against the US once the USSR withdrew.
    At the bottom — once again — American arrogance and stupidity.
