The strategic entente of both the countries covers broad consequences for regional and international geopolitics. The paper meticulous examines the role which is played by defence collaboration, energy cooperation and diplomatic overtures in the crystallization of the strategic links between Pakistan and Russia. The predominant aim of the research is to quest the multi-layered dimensions of the strategic alliance of both the countries and the reflective consequences on the contemporary geopolitics of South Asia.
