ISLAMABAD/NEW DELHI: Russia and Pakistan, two Cold War enemies when the former existed as the USSR, came together on Friday for their first-ever joint military exercise called 'Friendship 2016' in a development that will be watched keenly in both Delhi and Washington DC.
"A contingent of Russian ground forces arrived in Pakistan for the first Pak-Russian joint exercise scheduled from September 24 to October 10," said Lt General Asim Saleem Bajwa of the Pakistani army media wing.
Well , if Russia wants to be the next country being fleeced by Pakistan , they are welcome to it . Have they forgotten the role they played in kicking them out of Afghanistan ? If Russia wants to be with them , start reducing defense purchases from steadily and they will quickly learn
Whether it is USA, UK or Russia, we cannot expect any of them to give us even moral support, when our innocents get killed. Even when six of Americans were killed in Mumbai 26/11, that did not deter the USA not to sleep with or give financial support to that terrorist country. Now it is Russia''s turn. Our brave jawan has to stand up for himself to save his skin.

The IndianTV channels are going GaGa over claims of having isolated Pakistan internationally. And see! Their biggest ally Russia is joining Pak army in joint exercise in Pakistan. Time has come for India to shun Russia and join hands with America in fighting terrorism.
Pakistan has only one flourishing industry - exporting terrorism......Paki terrorists will soon start attacking Russia!
Russkies! You''re drilling with the wrong guys! THEY are the terrorists!!
India should first downgrade its diplomatic relations with Pakistan such as withdrawing its envoy and expelling Pakistan''s envoy.
Now india is left with no true friend only enemies surrounding it.
Earlier news report had said Russia had cancelled these joint military exercises as a reaction to Uri. These powers do not want to do anything for us but just please us for the moment.Let''s not take their "friendship" so easily. They are salivating at the prospects of the money they can make with our "make in india" drive. They are just saying without meaning it for us to hear want we want to hear
our scientists should innovate new weapons for our country pl do it urgently
Pakistan in anti-terror drill! What a joke!!!
BJP government failed in everything, even keeping it''s decade old friend Russia intact. Shame on it.
Actually it will work in India''s favor. We can get lot about Pakistani and Chinese tactics from Russia.
Pro-terror exercise, not anti-terror.
So will the drills include preventing Pakistan from exporting terrorism-especially to India?
I think Russian Govt have lost their mind.
