pakistan-to-acquire-eight-submarines-from-china-387b8b3d1a6f5a25cffe4829db366e96news5456sf65fChina has officially confirmed what is its biggest ever military deal, the sale of eight attack submarines to Pakistan which many experts say may be deployed in the Arabian Sea and challenge India’s interests in the Indian Ocean Region.
The China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation held a meeting in Beijing “to discuss details of the arrangement”, according to a report in a shipping industry newspaper.
Talks for the deal, estimated at more than $5 billion, were announced from Islamabad earlier this year, but Beijing was yet to confirm it.
Four of the submarines are to be built at the Karachi shipyard, with the rest in China.
