    Looks like Pak won’t open her airspace to India for an indefinite future...

    I think IK may be chief guest at the historic launch of BlockIII, the top of the line Thunder.

    This may be about some other necessary discussion with a view on upcoming US state visit by IK.

    It's not that historic that now a 5th meeting has taken place in past few months. Air Chief is looking for something big.

    A meeting between the two taking place exactly 10 prior to his meeting with Trump is certainly not a coincidence.

    The ACM has something on his 'Wishlist' and is hoping that IK will deliver. Question is at what cost...

    Lets forget the fact that PAK doesn't have the funds & the US (could/might) find a way around it.

    Lets say Capitol Hill were to accommodate the purchase of brand new/used F-16's.

    I sense Afghanistan/Taliban/Peace Process is just the tip of the iceberg. Iran is the new hot topic for the US & I get the feeling they're gonna want Pakistan on board just like they had Mushy on board after 9/11.

    Its a similar scenario of someone saying 'Jump' and the reply is, "How high?". Not that IK is the one who'll go for that.

    I'm really optimistic about this meeting & feel that we'll walk away with something. New or Used, well that's anyone's guess (unless people on PDF have some inside info).

    Lusting for US weapons will cost us dearly.
    Trying to make a deal with US is like making a deal with the devil.
    Ask Palestinians.
