Pakistan to Buy 2 US Fighter Jets in Near Future

  • VOA News

Pakistan's military has confirmed the United States will soon send it two F-16 fighter jets, ending a 15-year ban on such sales. The military says the used planes will be bought at a nominal cost, and that the sides are discussing the sale of newer versions of the jets. Pakistan bought more than 30 of the U.S.-built F-16s before 1990, when Washington blocked further military aircraft sales to protest Pakistan's nuclear weapons program. In March this year, Washington announced it would resume selling such craft to Islamabad, a move coinciding with Pakistan's close cooperation with the United States in anti-terror operations. India has criticized the U.S. decision and said the sale will hurt the peace process with its neighbor.
