Military and Technical Cooperation of Pakistan and USA

Category: Defence Industry

The United States and Pakistan have reached and agreement about supply of weapons to Pakistan for the total amount of $1.2 billion.

It is envisaged that Pakistan will receive 2,000 anti-tank guided missiles, electronic intelligence aircraft and other equipment.

Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, Pakistan's Minister of Information, has reportedly said that this step will enhance the defence potential of Pakistan, but it will pose no threat to the neighbouring countries, in particular, India. However, the Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has expressed its concerns related to this arms supply and has informed the USA about these concerns.

Supplies of weapons from the United States to Pakistan have become possible after the lifting of the embargo imposed against this country after it had carried out nuclear tests. The lifting of the embargo has been caused by the support rendered by Pakistan to the actions of the coalition forces in their fight against Taliban and Al-Qaeda.
