France deepens defense ties with Pakistan

The French are apparently handing off some new toys to the Pakistani military.

The Chief of the Army Staff General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani has said Pakistan and Nato forces need better coordination and more intelligence sharing to eliminate militants.

The army chief was talking to the French Chief of the Defence Staff General Jean-Louis Georgelin, who called on him at GHQ in Rawalpindi on Wednesday.

General Kiyani said that France's early delivery of defence equipment would help Pakistan in its ongoing military operation against terrorists.

The French Defence Chief assured Pakistan that France would positively consider Pakistan’s request for urgently required defence equipment, enhanced training facilities and sharing of intelligence.
