It's really difficult to be friends with a country like Pakistan that has exceptionally high moral standards.
@Yuri Kondratyuk.....Totally agreed.The glitter of money is now really taking over China who has now started treating Pakistan as a business partner just like others while Turkey has always been in the forefront to be alongside Pakistan in every matter.
@PUREDE51.....When the same Pakistan Aeronautical Complex introduced the PACPAD aka TAKHTI 7 and other gadgets like e book readers etc with much less market price and good warranty then people started to object that this project has been statrted by Generals to mint more and more money.Pitty on such mindset of our Nation. Turkey and Turkish people had been and are holding Pakistanis in high esteem and respect us alot. PAK TURK FRIENDSHIP ZINDABAD.
China, please note the point!
I ask upon the creative minds of PAKISTAN to manufacture every defence product itself so we can be self sufficient in the field of defence which is much more important for us. Besides this we must create electronics like computers and mobile phones and other IT stuff so we can meet our needs as well as international orders. PAKISTANIS are no less than any other on globe but must start long term projects...
@Lala Gee: Tey are dragging you to international court over the rental power payments. The sooner Pakistanis realize this the better it is for them that no country considers another a friend or enemy permanently - it is their national interests which are permanent. If they implement this also instead of their constant hatred for India, it will allow them to focus on improving things in their own country.
I love Turkey and Turkish people! They are the true friends of Pakistan!
I know this from my personal experience that Turkish people are the only true and self-less friends of Pakistan. God bless Turkish people. Pak-Turkish friendship Zindabad.
