ISLAMABAD, June 26 (Itar-Tass) - A group of Russian mountaineers, currently in Pakistan’s Gilgit Mountains, have begun to ascend Mount Gasherbrum in defiance of the warnings there is a threat to their lives from local extremists, the Russian embassy in Pakistan has told Itar-Tass.
“The five mountaineers have preferred to stay in the Gilgit mountains,” the embassy’s official said. “They expressed the wish to go ahead with their trek at their own risk in defiance our own warnings and advice from the Russian Mountaineering Federation.”
The athletes have been warned of the likely dire effects of their further presence in Pakistan.
“The Mountaineering Federation keeps in touch with them,” the diplomat said.
Upon arrival in Pakistan the five mountaineers failed to have themselves registered at the embassy’s consular office contrary to the established rules.
