Earlier, the Pakistani authorities asked the Americans to leave the Shamsi airbase, on which the CIA attack drones are based. 30 was told this on June by the Pakistan Defense Minister Chodhri Ahmed Mukhtar to the Associated Press of Pakistan.

      Yes, most likely this is so. The Chinese are organizing bases in Pakistan + cooperation in the field of aircraft manufacturing, tank building, etc. .. The Chinese are profitable, and the Pakistanis too. You can say they found each other.
