Russian 🇷🇺 Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said that Pakistan 🇵🇰 had every #Right to improve its nuclear capabilities by developing its #Own missile programme so long as it complied with relevant international obligations.
The remarks came after Pakistan conducted a #Successful test launch of the Shaheen-II surface to surface ballistic missile. The Russian diplomat maintained that there were certain export control regimes and other obligations as part of international treaties.

4 young Pakistani 🇵🇰 students secured places at the world’s #Largest pre-college science fair, Intel ISEF, held in United States 🇺🇸 #Respect ❤
Pakistan was represented by 6 students at the #World ’s 🌍 Largest fair of its kind, including 3 from Pak-Turk Maarif International Schools, run in Pakistan by a Turkish foundation.
The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) is the world’s largest international pre-college science competition and is held in Phoenix, Arizona #Featuring over 1,800 students from more than 80 countries, regions, and territories.
#Sadaf Naushad, from the Pak-Turk Maarif school, was one of 6 Pakistani students who presented their science projects at the fair and won a special prize 🎖 in the field of energy and also got a scholarship at Arizona state University with a cash prize for the grand prize.
#Ahmed Zafar and #Usaid Ahmed from Karachi and Mian #Affan Anwar from Rawalpindi also won prizes 🎖 and scholarships in the global competition.
I’m very happy, my family, friends, and colleagues are very happy for my success being recognised there on such a big platform, Sadaf Naushad from Karachi’s Pak-Turk Maarif School said.
It’s really a big achievement for my project, she added.
Sadaf’s award-winning project was a dual-purpose highway turbine.
The turbine is a vertical axis wind turbine project that serves two purposes by utilising the wind produced by a vehicle’s movement along the highway as well as the natural wind.
Speeding vehicles on highways can provide enough wind to power the turbines 24 hours without stopping.
The energy generated can be used for lighting along highways attached to the turbine and also extract water from underground for irrigation.
The aim of the project is to reduce electricity consumption and generate electricity as a renewable resource to promote greenery near Pakistan’s highways, Sadaf explained.
Highway turbines have already been installed in Turkey 🇹🇷 but Sadaf’s innovation is to pump underground water for irrigation.
