Pakistan Expected To Receive Crude Oil From Russia

This might be a good news for the people of Pakistan that Russia will send first shipment of crude oil to Pakistan by the end of next month.
This cargo shipment will not be the start of proper import of oil from Russia but just a test case and Russia asked Pakistan to import one cargo for the trust building. Russia acutally doubts the seriousness of Pakistan over this matter. If Pakistan nd Russia make a deal, Russian will be the second biggest oil supplier after Saudi Arabia.

In a recent meeting, Russia requested Pakistan to import just one cargo at the moment. With that, Russia has also agreed to trade in Russian, Chinese and UAE currency.

In January, Petroleum Minister Mosadak Malik claimed that Russia has agreed to provide petroleum products and crude oil on the discounted rates to Pakistan but till now, there is no news about discounted offer made by Russia.
