French have washed their hands completely off Pakistani aviation market. I will be surprised if Pakistan makes a big ticket purchase from France even in the distant future.
French can never be trusted.
The French are desperate to sell their stuff to PAF. PAF has options and is trying get the best. Rafales, EFT, SU-35, J-10 are available.
PAF know that they do not want to have only Chinese options because then the western set up would be a total waist which has been maintained and upgraded for the past 70 years.
