MOSCOW (Sputnik), Svetlana Alexandrova Russia and Pakistan are working on the first ever year of cultural exchange, as part of a larger effort to boost "multidimensional" ties between the two countries, the Pakistani ambassador to Russia told Sputnik on Saturday.

"Celebrating a year of a country is always a good idea. We have not celebrated a Year of Pakistan in Russia or a Year of Russia in Pakistan but this is an idea that we are working on. We hope that in the near future we will be able to do a Year of Pakistan in Russia," Zaheer Janjua said.

The ambassador said that Russian-Pakistani cultural cooperation was "in the state of development," adding Islamabad hoped to boost its partnership with Moscow to the "level it deserves" across various spheres, including politics, economy and defense.
