On the sidelines of Quadrilateral Summit now officially termed as Dushanbe-4 President Asif Ali Zardari and his Russian counterpart Anatolyevich Medvedev, while agreeing to build their equation independent of their bilateral relations with other countries, agreed to further strengthen bilateral relations and to broaden the scope of existing equation with an extended trade, economic, scientific and technological cooperation along with various other important areas including energy, counter-terrorism and strategic stability. President Zardari reiterated his call to institutionalize a regular dialogue between the two countries at the Foreign Ministers level with annual bilateral meeting, alternatively in Islamabad and Moscow, to sustain the upward trajectory in the relationship.
