In a statement shared on X (formerly Twitter), Prime Minister Sharif expressed his felicitations to President Putin, acknowledging his victory in the Russian presidential election.

The premier also highlighted the significance of the strong bilateral relationship between Pakistan and Russia, expressing his eagerness to collaborate with President Putin’s administration to further enhance and solidify the ties between the two nations.

President Vladimir Putin secured a landslide victory in the Russian presidential election, garnering a record 88% of the vote.

He reassured his commitment to safeguarding Russia’s borders and addressing the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, prioritizing military strengthening and defense enhancements as crucial tasks for his upcoming presidency.
