His Excellency Alexey Yurievich Dedov, the Ambassador of Russian Federation to Pakistan, visited COMSATS Secretariat, Islamabad, upon invitation from Dr. S. M.

Welcoming His Excellency, Dr. Zaidi apprised the Ambassador of the mandate and achievements of COMSATS. He further sought the Ambassador’s counsel for exploring different avenues for expansion of COMSATS’ membership with the involvement of Russia.

Dr. Zaidi also expressed his desire to involve the Russian government for achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. COMSATS also requested the Ambassador to take up COMSATS’ proposal matters with the Russian government for support to the COMSATS Member States through sponsorship of projects like development of tele-health facilities in COMSATS Member States. Cooperation of Russian institutions for possible establishment of technology parks in COMSATS Member States was also sought.
