Myanmar and Pakistan planning for defence partnership

With a senior level military delegation from Myanmar’s Directorate of Military Procurement scheduled to visit Pakistan for pre-shipment inspection of arms, the military partnership between Pakistan and Myanmar is gaining momentum. 

Myanmar army is planning to buy 60 mm and 80 mm mortars, M-79 grenade launchers, and Heavy Machine Guns from Pakistan. A senior delegation from Myanmar is expected to visit Pakistan to inspect these products, ET sources said. 

Myanmar is also planning to buy Air-to-Surface missiles from Pakistan for their JF-17 fighter aircraft. Myanmar cannot purchase these missiles from China due to the ban imposed by China on it.  

ET reports that following the military coup by Myanmar’s army, Pakistan, encouraged by China, is looking to expand its defence partnership with Myanmar. 

One of the prime interlocutors from Myanmar who is pushing military ties with Pakistan is Aye Ne Win, grandson of the country’s former military dictator General Ne Win.
