BAKU: Following Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s visit, Azerbaijan has shown its interest in purchasing Pakistani defence products, including the upgraded version of Pakistan’s JF-17 fighter aircraft, said a statement issued by PM House on Saturday.

 “In November, a high-level delegation will come to Pakistan to attend the Defence-Expo scheduled be held in Karachi. The delegation will also visit defence production facilities in Pakistan to look into the possibility of buying defence-related products,” the statement said.

“Pakistan has offered Azerbaijan several indigenously developed defence products, including the JF-17 fighter and Mushshaq trainer aircraft. At present, Pakistan is selling some conventional weaponry to the US, UK, Germany and some Far Eastern countries,” it added.

According to a PM House official, other defence products offered include anti-aircraft defence systems, command and control systems, armoured and unarmoured vehicles, body armour and personnel protection systems.

Earlier, during his visit to the country, PM Nawaz discussed ways of enhancing cooperation between the two countries in different areas.

Talking about his government’s economic policies, he said its priority is to extend all possible facilities to the business community.
