    Why is he gone there and what is the purpose of the visit, which is being sponsored by pak’s taxpayers money? Also, the uneven heights of the german security guards seems to be of NSC cadets, which are lined for some school/ university function!Recommend

    It is an í
    undeniable fact that Pakistan is the fifth largest democracy, a nuclear power, a future Asian Economic tiger (after completion of CPEC of course) in and possessor of a most battle tested army etc. So is there any doubt that Germans won’t be benefitted by having mil to mil cooperation ?

    How come ISPR always gives statement that other countries appreciate Pakistani army effort but those countries themselves never issue such statements themselves?Recommend
