MOSCOW, June 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia is negotiating MI-35 helicopter supplies to Pakistan, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.
Russia and Pakistan cooperate in resisting new challenges and threats as active participants in the international anti-terrorist coalition, the Foreign Ministry said. Contrary to some media reports, Russia had never introduced embargo on weapon supplies to Pakistan, it added.
Helicopter supplies are part of the Russian assistance in strengthening Islamabad’s anti-terrorist and anti-drug potential. Similar equipment was supplied earlier, as military cooperation with Pakistan started back in the 1960s.
Russia-Pakistan contacts in this field posed no threat to the existing strategic military balance in the region and were not aimed against the third countries, the Foreign Ministry said.
