Beijimg—China’s air force on Saturday began joint training exercises with that of Pakistan, China’s defence ministry said, as the two nations’ militaries strengthen operational ties.
“China’s Air Force hopes to widen the scope of cooperation and dialogue with all countries and regions,” the Chinese defence ministry said in a statement on its website, adding that the exercise, called “Shaheen V,” would run until April 30.
Shaheen-4, which was staged in China last year, featured fighters, fighter bombers as well as airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) aircraft.
According to Air Force spokesperson Shen Jinke, joint military exercises and exchanges between Chinese and Pakistani air forces in recent years had effectively deepened cooperation between the two militaries.—Agencies
