China will provide 110 latest JF-17 Thunder fighter jets to Pakistan as the two countries forge closer defence cooperation following President Xi Jinping's visit to Islamabad earlier this week.
China will deliver the first batch of 50 jets over a period of three years.
The JF-17 Thunder is also built in Pakistan as China has already transferred its technology.
During Xi's visit, a fleet of eight JF-17 jets escorted the special aircraft of the Chinese president when it entered Pakistan's airspace.
The two countries signed 51 agreements to boost economic cooperation during Xi's trip. indiatoday
