Feb 7, 2022

Prime Minister Imran Khan will visit Russia this month after, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said Monday.

FM Qureshi said that PM Imran Khan has been invited to Moscow by Russian President Vladimir Putin, calling it “evidence” that bilateral relations between Pakistan and Russia are witnessing a positive change.

The foreign minister made the announcement about the Russian tour while giving a briefing about the prime minister’s recently concluded visit to China and its outcomes.

PM Imran Khan, accompanied by a high-level delegation, had arrived in Beijing on Friday, after which he attended the opening ceremony of the Beijing Winter Olympics.

“The joint statement is a visual manifestation of the success of the China tour,” FM Qureshi said while referring to the statement mutually issued by Pakistan and China over the visit.

Pakistan and China are committed to the speedy completion of the second phase of the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CEPC), he added.

FM Qureshi added that neighboring Afghanistan would meet in Beijing at the end of March, where the future strategy would be worked out. He said the interim Afghan foreign minister would also be invited to the session.

The minister called on the international community to reconsider India’s “evil intentions”, so that regional peace and stability can be achieved.

Prime Minister Imran Khan will be Pakistan’s first prime minister to visit Russia in 23 years after former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, who visited Moscow after the end of the Cold War. Apart from him, former presidents Parvez Musharraf and Asif Ali Zardari also received a visit to a country in northern Asia.
