Close ties between China, Pak armies will maintain regional peace and global stability: PLA

BEIJING (web desk): People’s Liberation Army (PLA) said on Thursday, “Close ties between China and Pakistan armies will not only be helpful for the two countries but also maintain regional peace and global stability.”

Pakistan is seeking to make China its main supplier of military hardware, partly due to the easier financial terms offered by Beijing, replacing traditional suppliers from the west.

Chinese military spokesman, Col Ren Guoqiang told a media briefing that China and Pakistan share all-weather partnership. We have maintained a very high level of defence exchange and cooperation.

“At the same time, I am very confident that military cooperation will help facilitate our state to state relationship and also in maintaining regional peace and international stability,” he said.

Pakistan is seeking to make China its main supplier of military hardware, partly due to the easier financial terms offered by Beijing, replacing traditional suppliers from the west.

Guoqiang’s comments came in the backdrop of China selling a powerful tracking system in an “unprecedented deal”, which could speed up the development of multi-warhead missiles by Pakistan.

Zheng Mengwei, a researcher with the state-run Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) Institute of Optics and Electronics in Chengdu, Sichuan province recently.

The researchers told the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post that Pakistan had bought a highly sophisticated, large-scale optical tracking and measurement system from China and deployed it “at a firing range” for use in testing and developing its new missiles.

China was the first country to export such sensitive equipment to Pakistan, CAS said..

Pakistan has focused its efforts on developing multiple independently targetable re-entry vehicles (MIRVs), a type of missile-carrying several nuclear warheads that can be directed towards different targets, a report said.

Unlike the US, which accounts for one-third of exports and supplies at least 100 countries, China delivered major arms to 44 countries, mostly in Asia and Africa.
