Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohammad praised the strength of Pakistan Army and the efficacy of Pakistan Air Force’s fighter jet JF-17 Thunder.

The Malaysian premier was the chief guest at the Pakistan Day Parade and JF-17 Thunder jets were exhibited at the event. Regarding that, the premier said, “They [Pakistan] have been able to build aircraft now which were demonstrated. They performed very well.”

He further added that Malaysia will get one or two planes initially for evaluation and tests. “I knew Pakistan will like to sell its planes to us, so we said to give us one or two planes so we can see how strong they are,” said the premier.

Mahathir Mohammad was briefed on JF-17 Thunder fighter jets at the Nur Khan Airbase before he departed from the country, as his three-day trip marked an end on March 23.
