MOSCOW, June 27 (RIA Novosti) - Russian companies plan to implement prospective projects in Pakistan, including in energy and metallurgy, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Friday.

“We pay great attention to developing cooperation with the Islamic Republic of Pakistan,” Putin said during a diplomatic accreditation ceremony for foreign ambassadors to Russia broadcast on Rossiya-24.

“Russian companies are ready to fulfill prospective projects, including in the energy and metallurgy industry, in the sectors that were created with the help of specialists from [Russia],” the Russian president said.

Putin stressed that the important task is fighting terrorism and illegal drug trafficking.

Earlier this month, head of the Russian delegation at the Eurosatory 2014 international defense and security exhibition Igor Sevastyanov said Russia plans to supply Pakistan with Mi-35 combat helicopters to fight drug trafficking.

The head of Russia’s Rostec Corporation, a high-tech industrial producer and exporter, Sergei Chemezov, earlier stated that supplies of military equipment to Pakistan were to resume, including Mi-35 helicopters.

At the same time, a source in Pakistan’s foreign ministry told RIA Novosti that Russia never fully adhered to the embargo on military deliveries to Pakistan.
