China to give squadron of J10-B fighters to Pak
Islamabad: China will give Pakistan a
squadron of the advanced J-10B multi-role, all-weather fighter
aircraft in a bid to boost the strategic reach of its close
ally, a media report has said.
China has made the offer to Pakistan Army`s Chief of
General Staff, Lt Gen Waheed Arshad, who has just concluded a
week long visit to China, the Pakistani Urdu daily Jang said.
Pakistan will be the first country, after China, to
have such advanced aircraft which are equipped with the latest
weapons, it said.
During Arshad`s visit, China reiterated its defence
and economic support to Pakistan and assured him that the
relationship between the two countries will reach new
heights and Beijing`s efforts for the safety and security of
"all weather" ally will be never-ending.
Lt Gen Arshad visited many sensitive places in China
and called on General Ma Xiaotian, deputy chief of general
staff of People`s Liberation Army and other officials
including Lt General Ren Haiquan, the vice president
of the National Defence University.
Though China has earlier supplied Pakistan with
fighter jets, this is the first time that it is supplying
advanced jets to Pakistan.
China and Pakistan have also jointly built an advanced
fighter jet, JF-17, commonly known as `Thunder`.
