The Pakistani Navy frigate Aslat, under the command of 1st Rank Captain Akhmat Fakuk, arrived today on a friendly business visit to the port of Novorossiysk. This was reported by ITAR-TASS Head of the Information Support Department of the Black Sea fleet 1st rank captain Vyacheslav Trukhachev.

"For the first time, Pakistani sailors visit the Russian port," he stressed.

The purpose of the visit is the development of naval cooperation between Russia and Pakistan. "This friendly approach of the Pakistani frigate Aslat is a new step in bilateral cooperation between Russia and Pakistan. In response, Russian ships will also have the opportunity to enter the ports of Pakistan," Admiral Khan Hasan Bin, commander of the Pakistan Navy, said.

“We are proud that it was our ship and crew that were given the honorable right to be the first to make a business visit to the Russian port of Novorossiysk,” said frigate commander Ahmat Fakuk.

The guests were met by the deputy commander of the naval base / naval base / Novorossiysk, captain of the 1 rank Gennady Mikheev, and wished them a successful stay in the Russian city.

The program includes a visit to the head of the city and the commander of the naval base, meetings of Pakistani and Russian sailors on board the ship and on the sports grounds of the city, where they will hold a friendly futsal match and try their strength in tug-of-war.

In addition, representatives of the Aslat crew will take part in laying wreaths at the memorial complex on Heroes' Square, visit the cruiser-museum Mikhail Kutuzov, the memorial complex Malaya Zemlya. Will make excursions around the city and its resort places. The Pakistani warship itself will be open to the locals.

The frigate’s visit to Novorossiysk will end on October 20.

The Aslat is an F-22P type frigate. The ship was built entirely at a Pakistani shipyard and entered the Pakistan Navy 3 September 2013.

      That year (or the beginning of this) -Pakistan offered us close cooperation.
      I won’t say how much such a bazaar was.
      That is when, after a disagreement with the United States on the issue of drones, after the United States carried out a special operation to "seize Bin Laden" without the consent of the Pakistani government.
      But our type refused ...

        We have friendship with India. And at the same time they will not be friends.

            Russia is friends with Pakistan. but not deep. One thing India and China had was a border conflict. Another is the three wars with Pakistan. Also, do not forget who helped the spirits in Afghanistan.

              Actually, it would be more correct to write cooperation rather than friendship. But about helping spirits, do we need to pout and "take your toys and leave my sand"? A holy place is never empty; the Americans will climb in sooner or later. It's better to take advantage of the moment!

            And I would like to mention one more fact, along with reflections on friendship.
            The ship of the Pakistani Navy is invited and appeared in the new naval base of our fleet !!! IN NEW RUSSIAN. And this means that the base is ready or almost ready for operation!
            This fact pleases me the most!
            Good day to all, dear Friends and Colleagues! hi

          Good afternoon, Alex hi

          It's not about friendship, it’s beneficial for Russia to have trust with everyoneIt is no secret that between India and Pakistan the insoluble smoldering disputed border conflict lasts for decades and Russia it is beneficial to have an influence to prevent a recurrence of events in the past century.thanks to Russia, the conflict did not develop into a full-fledged war between India and Pakistan.

            I would clarify in nuclear war, and these are completely different pies.
            In 2001-02 there was a serious confrontation. Then both sides pulled to the border a total of up to a million soldiers. Pakistan feared that the Indian army, with its numerical superiority, would make a deep breakthrough into its territory. The answer to this raid was to be a nuclear strike. The former president of Pakistan, General Pervez Musharraf, wrote about this in his memoirs. India said it would not use the first nuclear weapon. Pakistan has not made such a commitment. He sees nuclear weapons as the last resort to national sovereignty.

      Pakistan produces aircraft (licensed, however).
      And rockets, by the way.
      I won’t say anything about space, but somewhere in the depths of memory, like they were launching something? No?

        Not in space, but they show something
        And on May 30, 1998, 12-18 kT were blown up
        And delivery cf.
        Pakistan uses the Ghauri missile as a means of delivering nuclear weapons, although other missiles in the Pakistani armed forces could be upgraded to carry a nuclear warhead. "Ghauri-1" was successfully tested on April 6, 1998 at a distance of 1100 km, probably with a payload of up to 700 kg. According to experts, the rocket was launched near the city of Jhelum in northeastern Pakistan, 100 km southeast of Islamabad, and hit a target near Quetta in the southwest.
        There is information that there is also a Khataf-V Ghauri missile, the test of which was allegedly carried out in early June 2004. They say that it has a flight range of 1,5 thousand km and can deliver any charge weighing up to 800 kg. The location of the test was not reported. As if the president of Pakistan, General Pervez Musharraf, was present. This was the second test of a similar rocket in a week.

      I hope that this visit will serve as a more trusting relationship between the Russian Navy and the Pakistan Navy.

      Pakistan Ministry of Defense acquired F-22P frigates from China in 2005. The deal amounted to 700 million dollars. The first three ships were almost completely built at the Hudong Zhonghua Shipyard in Shanghai and re-equipped in Pakistan. The first ship was handed over to the Pakistani Navy in July 2009, the second ─ in January, and the third ─ in September 2010.

    While the Indian prime minister is meeting with Putin and preparing to sign important agreements. Pakistani frigates come to Novorossiysk. What, the right hand does not know what the left does? Or did India decide for a loss in arms competitions to play? If we want In the future to have India as our ally (and the degree of cooperation speaks about this), then this Pakistani visit is at least stupid.
