Pointing out that bilateral trade between Pakistan and Russia is far below their huge potential, Dedov said serious efforts are needed to capitalise on these opportunities. However, in this connection the business communities of the two countries have to play their invigorated role, in addition to the governmental support from both the countries, he added.
