“During our talks we considered ideas to further promote economic diplomacy and discussed progress in the area of energy cooperation including the Pakistan-Stream Gas Pipeline project. We reviewed our cooperation in the field of security including counter-terrorism and defence,” he said. 

“FM Lavrov and I agreed on the need to promote greater people-to-people contact through greater collaboration across a diversity of fields, including education. We will also be enhancing our cooperation within the framework of Shanghai Cooperation Organization.”
Qureshi said Pakistan and Russia share convergent positions on several issues on multilateral agenda including peace & stability in Afghanistan.
“Shared w/ FM Lavrov our perspective on larger questions of peace & security in S Asia and worsening human right situation in Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir,” he said.
