1) Curbing Islamist militancy.

2) Sending signals to India about deviating from their multi-billion dollar defence relationship.

The couldn’t care less about Pakistan. I highly doubt that they’ve forgotten where all those Chechen Islamist insurgents got trained. And they aren’t going to discard a strong bilateral and trade relationship with India, for Pakistan, a country that has nothing to offer them, except more headaches.

Pakistan has long played host to American interests, time to break with the past and begin a new era of friendship and cooperation with Russia. With trade, energy and enhanced cultural/education exchanges, Pakistan-Russia relations have a full potential to develop.
In today’s war, more than 30K civilian casualties, thousands of officers and men in uniform giving ultimate sacrifice and many more injured. Even then Pakistan is asked to do more, maybe its time for no more.
