Rawalpindi–15 July, 2016

Pakistan and Turkey are having three important deals in defence production sector. Both countries are going to finalize deal for Super Mushshak .This deal is in last stages of finalization and is going to be signed very soon. It is a great development on part of Ministry Of Defence Production. Turkey is going to buy quite big number of Super Mushshak from Pakistan. This deal will strengthen ties between two brotherly countries and will result in huge foreign exchange for Pakistan. The deal is a great achievement for PAC Kamra. Prime Minister Muhammad Sharif took keen interest in the deal and the success is the result of excellent team work of MoDP , under its Federal Minister Rana Tanveer Hussain, PAF and Pakistan Aeronautical Complex Kamra.

 

Apart from sale of Super Mashshak, development of Fleet Tanker by KSEW, in collaboration with Turkey, is another example of close relationship in the field of defence production between the two countries. In August 2016 inauguration ceremony for handing over of Fleet Tanker from KSEW to Pakistan Navy is being planned. Highest dignitaries from both countries are expected to attend the inauguration ceremony.

 

MoDP Pakistan had already signed a contract for Mid Life Up-gradation of existing Agosta class submarine with a Turkish firm STM Savunma Teknoljileri Muhendislik ve Ticaret. It is an important defence project that will go a long way in enhancing the operational capabilities of existing submarine of Pakistan Navy besides further strengthening the defence ties among two brotherly countries.
