China gives 50 JF-17 thunderjets to Pakistan


As a gesture of strong friendship, China has provided 50 JF-17 thunderjets to Pakistan.

Quote:
China has agreed to immediately provide 50 JF-17 fighter jets to Pakistan, a major outcome of a visit by Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani to Beijing this week, Pakistani officials said Thursday.

China and Pakistan have jointly produced the JF-17 aircraft, but the new planes would be equipped with more sophisticated avionics, the officials said. The latest jet fighters would be paid for by China, they said.

The announcement came as Pakistans already tense relations with the United States soured further after the killing of Osama bin Laden deep inside Pakistan on May 2.

Last week, Pakistans spy chief denounced the United States in a rare briefing before Parliament in which he condemned the American raid for breaching Pakistans sovereignty. Parliament, in turn, called for the government to revisit relations with the United States.

Mr. Gilanis visit to Beijing served as a pointed reminder of Pakistani suggestions that the government might seek to recalibrate relations with the United States, using China to offset what many here view as an overdependence on Washington.

The United States has provided Pakistan with some $20 billion in aid, mostly military, for its cooperation in fighting terrorism since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Much of that aid has come in the form of reimbursements for Pakistani counterterrorism operations.

Both the aid and the effectiveness of Pakistans cooperation have been called into question by the discovery that Bin Laden had lived for years in a large compound adjacent to a top military academy in the city of Abbottabad, a two-hour drive from the capital, Islamabad.

While the Obama administration would still like Pakistans cooperation to wind down the war in Afghanistan and to root out terrorist groups, some American lawmakers are now calling for aid to Pakistan to be cut or suspended.

For their part, Pakistani officials were incensed that the Obama administration gave them no notice of the raid until helicopters bearing a Navy Seal team had already left the country.

Mr. Gilanis four-day visit to China may help Pakistan as it tries to regain leverage with the United States. During his visit, Mr. Gilani met with Premier Wen Jiabao of China, who bolstered Pakistan by saying the United States should respect Pakistans sovereignty.

The news about the JF-17 aircraft is clearly a signal that Pakistan is shopping for alternatives to Washington, though the value of the deal may be more symbolic than decisive in terms of Pakistans military capacity.

Pakistani military officials have consistently complained that American aid, which they would nonetheless like to keep flowing, falls short on many essential military items that the Americans have been reluctant to offer.

The United States provides Pakistan with F-16 fighter jets to help the country match the air power of its archrival India, but Pakistani military officials have complained that their F-16 fleet is aging.

The deal is another sign that Pakistans relations with China are frequently far less encumbered than those with the United States, and that in many ways the interests of Pakistan and China coincide more easily.

The United States may be Pakistans largest benefactor, but China is Pakistans largest trading partner, and for years the Chinese have heavily invested in building a deep-water port in the Pakistani city of Gwadar.

China is often referred to as Pakistans all-weather friend, a contrast to the common depiction of its up-and-down relationship with the United States, which is deeply unpopular here.

Very nice, China! Reply with quote
The joint venture JF-17 is a symbol of friendship of the two great nations. One is famous for its peaceful attitude and the other is famous for sacrificing every thing for peace. Unfortunately our time-favor friend USA, who is famous for faithless friendship all over the world seeking reasons to abandon after taking her favor. The few F-16 those've been given to Pakistan are from the old version and do not meet today requirements. In such conditions JF-17 will definitely help PAF to breath.

We welcome every friendship gesture from China.Our friendship is time tested.What I don't trust is our Presedent & his 40 thieves.Know for taking commission in every deal rather known b4 as 10% but now he eat up 100%.We should buy or get all required technology & euipments but in the meantime we shouldn't be used as a dumping market of out dated equipments.What I doubt is our own socalled leaders.

ZAIDZAID: Can you explain and give reasons, why Pakistan shouldnt co-operate with China? Or perhaps, why dont you introduce another country/s with whom Pakistan should co-operate and give us reasons as well.
