[U.S. Fox News reported on March 26] issue: Pakistan to change sides: to expand military ties with China, the United States behind (Reporters meters Nick Di Natale sent from Islamabad)
analysts on our station, told reporters that the United States aside and accepted by China as the country’s new strategic partner of weapons, Pakistan is expanding its missile can carry nuclear warheads library.
Pakistan earlier this month from an undisclosed location test-fired a missile capable of carrying nuclear warheads – which is Pakistan’s second test within one month, “Hate Fu-2″ type short-range surface-to. This jointly developed by Pakistan and China’s missile cooperation between the latest results of a series of weapons. Extremely self-confident India, with American support, while China and Pakistan strategic partnership between the two countries as India, weight checks and balances.
in the mid-1960s. Pakistan, the United States was the main supplier of weapons. But in the 9-11 incident, the bilateral relations into a difficult – sometimes even more difficult to predict – the period since the U.S. began to alienate Pakistan, no longer fully support Pakistan’s military ambitions. This led to Pakistan put aside the United States in favor of China as the main source of weapons.
network military analysts predicted the U.S. strategy director Nate Hughes said: “Pakistan believes that, unlike the United States as China, relations between the two countries with so many strings attached.”
This situation was reflected in last November, the most obvious: to deliver as promised in the United States to Pakistan 18 F-16 fighter jets on the same day, Islamabad announced that it booked a group from the Chinese medium-range SD-IO missile and radar systems, to equip its JF-17 “Lightning” fighter.
also carry out more cooperation between the two countries. China planned to be in the next 5 to IO-year period be delivered to Pakistan 250 JF-17 fighters: In addition, the two countries also signed a $ 1.3 billion of J-10 fighter aircraft purchase contracts, recently reached a purchase of six submarine deal.
Earlier this month, China started construction of two cutting-edge Pakistan Navy missile attack boats. In 2005, Pakistan has ordered eight to Beijing F22P frigates. Although the amount of these contracts is strictly confidential, but some people want to know how to invest in Pakistan so much money for defense spending.
British Institute of Strategic Stability in South Asia in Islamabad, the head of Maria Sultan, said: “While President Zardari’s trip to China six months to go, but a signed a memorandum of understanding, but He can afford to pay the money promised is far less than the amount you have to see the loan period is very long, and then look at Pakistan in 5, 10 and 15 years, how much money can be also in Pakistan after the payment of interest Many loans can be exempt, Pakistan, China no longer requires the return of principal. “
However, the China-Pakistan relations may also be problematic. Sultan said: “Pakistan and China to understand problems in terms of their attitude in doing trade with China, Pakistan is difficult to use the kind of straightforward business dealings model – and Pakistan is dealing with the United States began to do with dealing with the Chinese is a form based on the time based on the interpersonal exchanges, through the gradual establishment of friendship and mutual trust to achieve in China in 15 years, can offer something the United States in 4 years can do. “
This led Pakistan to deepen bilateral relations with China.
