Premier Li Keqiang said that China and Pakistan will always be good partners, and the two countries will work together to deepen their pragmatic cooperation.

Premier Li made the remarks in talks with Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari shortly after he landed in Pakistan’s capital Islamabad on Wednesday.

Li said he stopped in Pakistan in his first overseas trip because China aims to open a new chapter in bilateral ties with Pakistan. Zardari, for his part, said the itinerary of Li’s first foreign trip as premier testifies to the great importance China attaches to the bilateral ties.

In a separate meeting with Zardari and Pakistani interim Prime Minister Mir Hazar Khan Khoso, Premier Li said the China-Pakistan relationship is one of the priorities in China’s foreign policy. Li noted that China will maintain high level exchanges with Pakistan. The two sideas will develop new pragmatic cooperation areas such as Internet and oceanic sources development.

After the meeting, Zardari held a grand ceremony to confer on the Chinese premier the Nishan-e-Pakistan, the highest award given by the Pakistani government.

RAJA SABRI KHAN : Pakistan developing armed drone technology

Pakistan developing combat drones

Pakistan is on the cusp of joining an elite group of countries capable of manufacturing unmanned aircraft capable of killing as well as spying, a senior defence official has claims.

Publicly, Islamabad, which officially objects to lethal drone strikes carried out by the CIA along its border with Afghanistan, says it is only developing remote-controlled aircraft for surveillance purposes.

But last week, during a major arms fair held in Karachi, military officials briefed some of Pakistan’s closest allies about efforts by the army to develop its own combat unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).

“The foreign delegates were quite excited by what Pakistan has achieved,” said the official, who was closely involved with organising the four-day International Defence Exhibition and Seminar (Ideas). “They were briefed about a UAV that can be armed and has the capability to carry a weapon payload.”

The official said Pakistan wanted to demonstrate to friendly countries, principally Turkey and the Gulf, that it can be self-sufficient in a technology that is revolutionising warfare and which is currently dominated by a handful of countries that do not readily share the capability.

“It does not have the efficiency and performance as good as Predator,” he said, referring to the US combat drone widely used to attack militant targets. “But it does exist.”

He gave no details about the capabilities of the aircraft, or even its name.

Huw Williams, an expert on unmanned systems at Jane’s Defence Weekly, expressed doubts that Pakistan could have succeeded in progressing very far from the “pretty basic” small reconnaissancedrones, which the country publicly exhibited at the weapons show, including the Shahpar and Uqab aircraft developed by the state-owned consortium Global Industrial and Defence Solutions.

“The smaller systems are not greatly beyond that of a model aircraft,” he said. “But the larger, long-endurance drones are a step up in technology across the board.”

Only the US and Israel are currently believed to have drones that can fire missiles. China and Turkey are also working on large-scale combat drones.

Both countries exhibited models of drones at the sprawling Karachi conference centre, which included Pakistani companies marketing everything from guns that shoot around corners to inflatable tanks intended to fox surveillance aircraft.

The big claims about Pakistan’s developing drone capacity highlights the enormous interest in the technology from armies around the world.

“Everyone has been asking us whether our drones can carry weapons,” said Raja Sabri Khan, chief executive of Integrated Dynamics, a company that showed off a wide range of small and mid-size reconnaissance drones. “But that’s a business for the big boys only.”

Khan has been deliberately refocusing his company’s efforts on smaller drones, many of which are launched by hand, which are mostly intended for civilian use.

A Pakistani army colonel attending the exhibition, after recently finishing a tour fighting against militants in the country’s border region, said such small drones were a vital tool.

“We have these small drones, but not enough of them and we do not always get them when we have operations,” said the colonel, who did not wish to be named. “They are excellent for observing the Taliban, their movements and deployments.”

It was the seventh arms fair hosted by Pakistan intended to show off the country’s defence industry.

Organisers conceded that this year had not been a major commercial success but were pleased with the turnout after the last event in 2010 had to be cancelled.

Several exhibitors said Pakistani companies – many of which are directly owned by the country’s military – offered a cheaper alternative to developing countries looking to buy everything from tanks to computer simulators used to train pilots.

Pakistan developing armed drone technology: Report

 Pakistan is secretly racing to develop its own armed drones but is struggling in its initial tests with a lack of precision munitions and advanced targeting technology, theAssociated Press (AP) reported on Sunday.

It was reported that China has offered to help by selling drones it has developed to the country. But industry experts said there is still uncertainty about the capabilities of the Chinese aircraft.

Federal Minister for Defence Syed Naveed Qamar had said that Pakistan’s own drone technology is at its initial stage and has been used only for air surveillance.

In a chat with media during his visit to International Defence Exhibition and Seminar IDEAS-2012 Pakistan in Karachi, the defence minister had said that these drones do not have the capacity to carry arms, yet.

Pakistan has demanded the US to provide it with armed drones, claiming it could more effectively carry out attacks against militants. Washington has refused because of the sensitive nature of the technology and doubts that Pakistan would reliably target US enemies.

Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf had indicated, during the Ideas 2012, that Islamabad would look for help from Beijing in response to US intransigence, the AP report said.

“Pakistan can also benefit from China in defense collaboration, offsetting the undeclared technological apartheid,” said Ashraf.

Whereas, Pakistan has also been working to develop armed drones on its own, said military officials and civilians involved in the domestic drone industry, all of whom spoke on condition of anonymity because of the classified nature of the work.
