Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan to visit Russia on Feb 23-24: Reports

Prime Minister Imran Khan will visit Russia on February 23-24, the official Russian media has reported, signaling the first visit by a Pakistani premier to Moscow in 23 years.

Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov confirmed that preparations for the visit of Prime Minister Khan were underway, the state-run TASS news agency reported on Sunday.

“The visit will take place on February 23-24,” it quoted a source in diplomatic circles as saying. Khan’s visit has not been officially announced by Pakistan and Russia.

Khan is expected to hold a key meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, sources in Pakistan said earlier. Pakistan and Russia are expected to strike major deals during the trip, including a movement forward on Russian investment to build a USD 2 billion worth gas pipeline, Pakistani media reported last week.

A Russian delegation was in Pakistan recently to negotiate toll-free proceedings and tax exemptions in connection with the Pakistan Gas Stream Project. The Pakistani leadership wants to sign a commercial agreement with Russia during Khan’s visit.
