Telephone conversation with Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan

January 17, 2022

Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation with Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan Imran Khan.

The discussion focused on the development of Russian-Pakistani ties in different areas, including trade, the economy, energy and the humanitarian sphere, as well as combatting the spread of the coronavirus infection.

Imran Khan underscored the broad support in Pakistani society and the Muslim world in general for the Russian President’s statements made at his annual news conference held on December 23, 2021, on the inadmissibility of any actions, under the pretext of freedom of expression, impairing the dignity of any religious, ethnic or social group. In this context Vladimir Putin mentioned that historically, the Russian Federation has been a multi-ethnic and multireligious state, where peoples practicing different religions, including Islam, traditionally co-exist and interact.

The parties agreed to continue their contacts.
