Expansion of bilateral cooperation between China and Pakistan to provide stability to the regional relationship: Minister

RAWALPINDI: Pakistan is keen to further develop the existing cooperation with ALIT China, including the defence sector, for the mutual benefit of the two countries and prosperity and stability in the region.

This thought reached during call on of Mr. Shi kelu, Chairman and President of Alit China with Rana Tanveer Hussain, Minister of Defence Production (MoDP).

“The expansion of bilateral cooperation between China and Pakistan will provide stability to the regional relationship”, said Rana Tanveer Hussain. He highlighted that there are some issues with material imported from ALIT.

He said for instance that material is not designed to engage receding and hovering targets. So some modifications must be carried out in software to meet the requirement.

He mentioned that Pakistan and Iraq have been cooperating in the field of defence, mainly encompassing training of defence personnel and exchange of defence delegations. He suggested that Iraq may like to benefit from Pakistan Military training potential as well. ALIT is being pursued to provide technical and commercial proposal to PAF.
