ISLAMABAD, June 24 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Embassy to Pakistan has not received a request to evacuate Russian mountain climbers from Gilgit-Baltistan, northern Pakistan, the embassy press service reports from Islamabad.
“As of the present moment, we have received no requests concerning the evacuation from Gilgit of all Russian mountain climbers,” a source said. “If we receive such a request, we will immediately begin working it up with the Pakistani side,” the press service said.
