Won’t do anything harmful to India’s security: Russia

Weeks after it signed a military cooperation agreement with Pakistan, Russia on Monday said it will never do anything “detrimental” to India’s security interests and that the pact does not envisage supply of any defence equipment to that country immediately.

Calling India as a time tested ally and “closest friend”, Russian Ambassador Alexander Kadakin said Russia’s relations with Pakistan have “separate value” but they will not be at the expense of ties with New Delhi.

“Never ever will Russia do anything to the detriment of India’s security. India is the closest friend of my country,” Alexander Kadakin said addressing a press conference on the eve of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit here from December 10.

Noting that Russia has interest in Afghanistan, ambassador Alexander Kadakin said improvement in its relations with Pakistan will help influencing the country to get “desirable action”.
