Problem from the security POV for the Pakistani state is that Dimran can't be allowed to speak alone, he can't be allowed to stay in a hotel (the CIA will simply make videos of his antics all night long).

The man is a serious liability for them, yet they need him for media management purposes

It is possible that the S-400 may be able to detect the F-35, provided certain tweaks are made to the software
Russians will have access to the S-400, for servicing, training, etc
Wonder if the S-400 relays info back to the fatherland as well
