Pakistan shows interest in Russian Weapons

Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan has hinted at looking for Russian arsenal for its defence needs. The recent meeting of Pakistan's prime minister and the Russian President Putin during the recently concluded Shanghai Cooperation Organization Summit in Kyrgyzstan.

For long Pakistan has been dependent on Western, specially the American weapons but the latest shift in interests by US compels Pakistan to start exploring other arms markets.Specially so for the reason that USA is notorious to blocks spares or even ordered bookings that have negative effects on maintainer of armies. Pakistan is in dire need of attack helicopters as its aging fleet of American Cobra helicopters is almost sighing its last.

Russia has much to offer to Pakistan. Almost all weapons systems – land or sea-based – could be used by Pakistani armed forces, but the likeliest candidates are tanks, helicopters, specially Mi-35 gunship helicopters, and air defense systems, explains military expert and retired colonel Mikhail Khodarenok..





There’s plenty of reasons why Russia may want to offer its state-of-the-art armaments to Pakistan, he stated. Pakistan is an emerging arms trade market, and its demand for Russian weapons may amount to a whopping $8-9 billion in coming years.

French Open 2019: Frederer and Nadal to date in Semis on Friday


The heartbeats in Paris are getting stronger and faster as the ongoing French Open 2019 or the Roland Garros is reaching its crucial stage of semis. While Serena crashed out in the third round to make a history, men are doing pretty well without any major set back so far.

And in the first decided semi final Roger Federer and Nadal have a date to decide who moves into the final. The Federer-Nadal semi is being played on Friday. So who is going to march into finals is hard to tell for now, but most pin hopes on Nadal who feels more at home on the clay than Federer who is king of grass.





Rafael Nadal, the defending champion,  had an easy 6-1 6-1 6-3 win over Kei Nishikori in the quarter-finals, while Federer had a rather tough time of playing down fellow Swiss Stan Wawrinka in four sets.

20-times Grand Slam winner Federer is playing at Roland Garros for the first time in four years, having missed the 2016 event with a back injury and skipped the past two clay-court swings to preserve his body.

Nadal is playing his 12th semi-final at Roland Garros and has won the tournament on all of the 11 previous occasions he has reached this stage.

Ecuador crumbles to US Pressure to Evict WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange


In a dramatic move on Thursday, 11 April 2019, the Ecuadorean embassy in London evicted WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who had been hiding there for the past seven years.

A bedraggled and shackled Mr. Assange, 47, was dragged out of the embassy. At a court hearing, a judge swiftly found him guilty of jumping bail, and he was detained partly in connection with an American extradition warrant.

The Ecuadorean government suspended the citizenship of Julian Assange it had granted to him and evicted him on Thursday, clearing the way for his arrest.





Julian Assange is now likely to face charges in the USA for conspiring to hack into a Pentagon computer network in 2010.

Major EU Countries Denounce Trump Decision on Golan Heights


In a fierce reactive mode, five major European countries that sit on the UN Security Council on Tuesday denounced US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize the Golan as Israeli territory and voiced concern the move could have broad consequences.

These countries included Belgium, Britain, France, Germany and Poland. The countries reiterated that the European position had not changed and that the Golan remained Israeli-occupied Syrian territory, in line with international law enshrined in UN resolutions.






“We do not recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the territories occupied by Israel since June 1967, including the Golan Heights, and we do not consider them to be part of the territory of the state of Israel,” Belgian Ambassador Marc Pesteen de Buytswerve told reporters.

It may be recalled that Three UN Security Council resolutions call on Israel to withdraw from the Golan, which it seized from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War and annexed in 1981, in a move that was never recognised internationally.

Imposing Headlines: Pakistan shoots down two Indian Aircraft

Pakistan confirmed on Wednesday 27 February 2019 that it had carried out air strikes in Kashmir and shot down two Indian jets in its own airspace, capturing one of the pilots as the conflict with its nuclear-armed neighbour continued to escalate.
The Pakistan military said Indian jets had entered Pakistan in response and two had been shot down, with one pilot captured. The surprise move came a day after Indian jets intruded into Pakistani airspace and claimed to have attacked a militant camp.





Tensions have dramatically escalated between the nuclear-armed rivals since Indian warplanes flew into Pakistani airspace and struck what New Delhi said was a camp of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), the group that claimed the Kashmir bombing.

The Foreign Office in a statement said: “Pakistan Air Force undertook strikes across Line of Control from within Pakistani airspace. This was not a retaliation to continued Indian belligerence. Pakistan has therefore, taken strikes at non military target, avoiding human loss and collateral damage.”
