    RIYADH: Marshal Sohail Aman, the Pakistani air chief, has been given the prestigious King Abdul Aziz Medal of Excellence by the Chief of General Staff (Royal Saudi Armed Forces), Gen. Abdul Rahman bin Saleh Al-Bunyan.
    The air chief received the award during his visit to the Kingdom, where he met Gen. Abdul Rahman in his office.
    The Pakistan Air Force (PAF) said in a press statement Friday that the medal had been awarded to the air chief in recognition of support provided by the PAF to the Royal Saudi Air Force in various domains.
    During the meeting with Gen. Abdul Rahman, the air chief highlighted the PAF’s key role in counterterrorism operations in Pakistan.
    The statement added that the Saudi Chief of General Staff lauded the PAF’s role in the success of operation Zarb-e-Azb, a major offensive that Pakistani armed forces launched on June 15, 2014.
    The Pakistani Air Chief also met Major General Mohammed bin Saleh Al Otaibi, Commander of the Royal Saudi Air Force, at its operations center in Riyadh.
    “The Air Chief expressed satisfaction on the unremitting mutual cooperation between the two air forces and offered assistance to his counterpart in the fields of military and aviation training,” said the statement.
    Pakistan and Saudi Arabia enjoy deep-rooted defense ties.
    Earlier this week joint exercises of their naval forces began in the Arabian Sea near the port city of Karachi.
    “The joint exercise is a regular feature of our defense cooperation with the Kingdom, to share expertise and exchange knowledge between the two naval forces,” Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Faisal said on Friday during a weekly news briefing.

    Why is every habibi of the yanks visiting and bestowing awards and throwing pompous ceremonies left right and centre? Strange the yanks bark yet send their allies to Pakistan strage people they are.

    This has more to do with Yemen war then US pressure.

    Yemen war has a greater Arab footprint and the footprint of the US is small there. The US did not want another front and thus has been doing little else other then selling weapons and providing token help for an ally that is expected.

    but you cannot deny they have their interest in Yemen because they were drone attacks there not so long ago.

    their interest is to seem involved without any actual commitments because that suits them. Weapons spent, arm deals made, all for a few drone strikes. Yet the number of scud attacks does point to a threat which is real.
    But we need to look at our Armed forces with respect, the medal is well deserved and it is the least that can be done after the training given by the PAF to the arabs.

    These medals cannot buy Army or AF to bomb and kill innocent Yemenis.

    So we don't have any direct relationship with any country other than US? and every other country who sends their civilian or military representatives to Pakistan is doing so only to please USA?

    Don't behave like Afghans, NEVER forget the people/countries that helped you discretely in your difficult times.

    And it will happen again....for Pakistan getting medals are nice gestures from the "Islamic" brothers....they gotta worship them at the end of the day anyways even if it comes at the cost of humiliation because there is no shame amongst the ruling elected officials.

    We develop manufacture and induct jf17 whilst India talks about an amazing tejas still on a track.
    We induct Al Khalid in the dozens whilst Indian arjun is stuck in the sand.
    We export small arms fighter aircraft trainer aircraft and military expertise and India gets the glory of being a suap powa.

    I would rather suffer now and be on our feet than suffer later. I prefer a medal over the noose of a handout
