    Azerbaijan to buy JF-17 multirole fighters from Pakistan

    Azerbaijan Defense Minister Safar Abiyev and Defense Industry Minister Yavar Jamalov are scheduled to make an official visit to Pakistan.


    The meetings during the visit are to cover cooperation between Azerbaijani and Pakistan in defense industry, APA reports.

    Azerbaijani Embassy in Pakistan and Foreign Ministries of the two countries are preparing for the visit.

    Safar Abiyev and Yavar Jamalov are said to hold several official meetings in the Pakistani Defense Ministry. Defense Industry Minister Jamalov will talk with the Secretary of Pakistan Defense Ministry Shaig Siddig Termidi on cooperation prospects.

    During attending the IDEAS international military exhibition in Pakistan, Azerbaijan showed interest to JF-17 multirole fighters as well as tanks and small arms made in Pakistan.

    This was originally mooted a few months back....If it is appearing in the Azerbaijani press then there might be some some substance to it.

    If the numbers bandied around at the time are accurate then it will be for 26 planes.So roughly a $390 mil to $520 million order. Which is a nice chunk of change.

    Yeah but the link is from April 2007, so I guess it has already been reported and the discussions have been done and dusted. though I don't think the deal is off, international defence deals take much more than 4 months to conclude.

    Egypt is asking for License production of JF-17. I thnk Pakistan n China r nt replying in positive way to Eygpt for local production.

    As recent reports, Azerbyjan has ordered 26 JF-17s but their delivery date is unknwn like F-16C/D to PAF:cheesy:

    I think Sri Lanka canceled its order for JF-17s.
