Egypt and Pakistan enhance ties in defence production
Egypt’s Ambassador to Pakistan Sherif Shaheen and the Pakistani Federal Minister for Defence Production Rana Tanveer Hussain met to discuss a closer collaboration between Pakistan and Egypt in the field of defence production.
On the occasion, the Pakistani minister of Defence Production said that the future cooperation between the two countries in the defence industry is very important, according to Daily Pakisan.
Rana Tanveer Hussain also offered JF-17 Thunder jet and Super Mashak to Egypt. He admitted that Iraq had already signed an agreement to purchase 20 Super Mashak jets from Pakistan.
Egypt’s ambassador declared his country’s strong admiration towards Pakistan. He expressed his government’s interest in a close cooperation in the field of defence. “A close cooperation between the two countries will also help other Muslim countries over the world,” he added.
As result, Sherif Shaheen called on Rana Tanveer Hussain and showed his country’s interest in buying JF-17 Thunder.
Pakistan is presently selling traditional weapons to USA, United Kingdom (UK), Germany and the Far-East.
Moreover, the Cadet Exchange programme in the field of military training is very much appreciated by both countries.
Sherif Shaheen said that Egypt would send a defence delegation to visit the defence production facilities. Egypt will also look into buying more other defence related products from Pakistan.
Pakistan and Egypt have agreed to intensify efforts to further expand and diversify their relations.
Both countries enjoy close and traditional friendly relations that date back to the creation of Pakistan.
This historical relationship is rooted in common faith and cultural affinities between the peoples of the two Islamic countries.
