it is the important visit of Gen Bajwa and IK to discuss the Afghanistan peace process & India Investment future, Kashmir issue, CPEC 2nd & 3rd Phase and how to provide securities on these projects before Xi Jinping visit to India. China, Russia, Turkey, Iran, and Pakistan is emerging as a key player in a region. India is history now in the region player. Thank you, Mr. Modi, Kashmir issue was dead for us but you put the life back on almost forgotten dispute.
Foremost reason is asking for help in FATF to avoid blacklisting. If that happens, all dreams of FDI, CPEC, further loans, remittances etc will be severely impacted and will push Pakistan further into bankruptcy.

On Kashmir, I don't think China can do much, neither can Pakistan. It's a wait and watch game now. Wait for you time if it comes.

On Xi's visit to India, china may raise K issue but will be cautious not to harm it's trade with India....China is already reeling with slowdown in the wake of China-US trade war.

On China, "Russia, Turkey, Iran, and Pakistan is emerging as a key player in a region", since when Turkey is in the region? Key players are defined by circumstances and assisted by it's cultural influence and economic power. I don't think Pakistan is there yet. Except for Afghanistan what other card does it hold?

From what I have heard, big deals are in the works, especially for the Navy and Airforce.

On the civilian side, next stage of CPEC, including manufacturing, infrastructure and agricultural and other tech.
What kind of big deals?? Are we getting J-20 or ACC or N- Sub??

To premature to speculate, but mark my words the strategic relationship is getting ramped up.
To what level??

@Adonis US is stuck in Afghanistan and Syria. They want to get out as soon as possible with little life loss. They will do anything and will support anyone. They are in trouble. If they want to keep peace in Afghanistan and keep their failure hidden Pakistan has say. Let suppose once they are gone and Pakistan is moved to Russian China Block. US will be useless in this region with Iran issue on burner. Politics is a dirty mess and anything can happen.
Pakistan is not ordinary country my friend its a nuclear country and most of the policies of other countries are made in a different way for Pakistan.

don't hide yourself as Aussie ,This is just Indian propaganda, The factual evidence, both historic and current, suggests that these assertions are simply incorrect. Pakistan was on the FATF grey-list from 2012 to 2015, a period during which it successfully completed an IMF program and raised over $5 billion from the international bond markets. During this period Pakistan’s imports and exports remained stable, evidence that the grey-listing did not raise any significant barriers to trade.Pakistan has survived previous rounds of international pressure and there is scant evidence that the strategic calculus of Pakistan’s security establishment is shifting this time around. You better worry about the Indian economy where your GDP is -2.5 but fake media under Modi Govt claiming 5% GDP and there's no way to survive.
As far as China Trade with India, I think all Indian make mistake here and you don't understand the Chinese thinking, better try to understand them first. Look how china destroying your local markets ;-) factory is in Kalakat, on paper, it is showing boosting the economy and hired 2000 employee but actually, all the material is coming from china and your fake media claiming 5% GDP growth on nothing. Do you think Ikea in Mumbai boosts the economy of the local market or it will destroy it? question of a day for you.
Listen your country fellowmen ,

@Rafi FC20?? More frigates for Navy??agriculture is very important if we get double yeild will help farmers and food security
If Pakistan is expecting a Conflict with India, than my bet is that PA is looking for Low/Med Altitude Radars , SPH(?) , SHORAD's (?) , more SD-10/PL-15's .. as Rafi said, on naval side I would expect more Anti-Ship missiles or extended ranges for existing ones.

China, Pakistan agree to enhance defence cooperation



BEIJING: The Chinese military leadership on Tuesday supported the stance of Pakistan on the outstanding occupied Kashmir dispute with India, according to a press release issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

The affirmation was made when Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa met General Han Weiguo and General Xu Qiliang of the People’s Liberation Army in Beijing. Issues of regional security and defence cooperation were discussed in the meeting.

According to the ISPR, the COAS apprised the Chinese military leadership about consequences of the ongoing situation in Indian-occupied Kashmir, and said that India needed to respect United Nations resolution in this regard and ensure provision of human rights to Kashmiris.

"Chinese military leadership supported Pakistan’s principled stance on Kashmir issue, and appreciated sane Pakistani approach in the interest of peace," the press release stated.

ISPR also said that in the meeting, the two sides agreed that continued Pak-India tension would have serious implications for peace and stability in the region.

The media wing of the military also told the media that the COAS apprised the Chinese military leadership about the peace efforts made by Pakistan, and said that the efforts would not be at the cost of any compromise on principles or honour and dignity of the nation.

Both sides also discussed the developing situation in the Gulf and efforts for peace in Afghanistan, the press release stated. They also agreed to enhance existing defence cooperation in line with history of mutual time-tested relationship.

Earlier, upon arrival at the PLA headquarters, the COAS was presented with a guard of honour.

i am sure china will advise against any military action of any scale in IOK.

If Pakistan is expecting a Conflict with India, than my bet is that PA is looking for Low/Med Altitude Radars , SPH(?) , SHORAD's (?) , more SD-10/PL-15's .. as Rafi said, on naval side I would expect more Anti-Ship missiles or extended ranges for existing ones.
pak is not expecting any conflict with india but procurement of military equipment will be discussed as china is our only reliable source of military hardware.

If Pak/PAF is looking at J-10CE on this trip then it likely will imply the end of F-16s purchases ( new / used ) due to T&C presented to Pak/PAF for new birds, just my opinion.

Pakistan really needs to invest in establishing industries, not only for commerce, but also for military. For this Pakistan has to structure core curriculum for graduates in material science, metallurgical studies, environmental sciences, medical science and marine environmental preservation.
