  1. long live Pak China friendship, China helped Pakistan in all difficult times. US doesnt like even for one second that Pak buy all type of Army hardware from China. we dont have a choice, US has keept negative policy against Pakistan and China. Now US helping India to built its defense sheild and buy F 16, F 18 Hornot and F 22. US is still pending Pak F 16 since 1990, and other Navy hardware. long story short Pak needs to work with China very close for its future interests.
