    Pak-US joint military exercise in summer

    ISLAMABAD - The armed forces of Pakistan and the United States will conduct joint military exercises early next summer.
    The combat contingents of the two countries will participate in the joint military manoeuvring with the most sophisticated warfare.

    Commander-in-Chief of the American Central Command, General Tommy Franks spent the second day of his visit in close consultations with the leadership of the Pakistan armed forces.

    During these consultations the two sides reiterated the understanding that armed forces of the two countries would maintain close friendship and professional coordination, the daily Jang reported here yesterday.

    The two sides were in agreement to further cement ties between the two armies.

    Sources said that the visiting US commander spent seven hours in military headquarters, GHQ wherein Pakistan's Chief of General Staff, Lt. General Mohammad Yousaf Khan briefed him on the strategic regional situation. The briefing was also attended by majority of principal officers of the GHQ.

    Earlier General Tommy called on Pakistan Chief Executive, General Pervez Musharraf in his office in GHQ. The American guest expressed pleasure at the professional training of the Pakistan armed forces.

    General Franks was informed that Pakistani troops are maintaining maximum restraint on the Line of Control for the sake of peace.

    This, he was told, was done despite the negative approach of India. The American General showed interest in matters relating to Afghanistan and called for eradication of "terrorism". The American General hailed General Musharraf's commitment to peace and extended good wishes for his success.

    Meanwhile, the Pakistan Navy is to express its concern with US General Tommy R. Franks, chief of the US Central Command (Centcom), over the presence of American warships in international waters off Pakistan's coast, reports said yesterday.

    "The innocent passage is something different but the continuous presence of extra-regional forces is a matter of concern for us," Islamabad-based newspaper The Nation quoted unidentified senior Pakistan naval officials as saying. There are reports, the paper said, that currently there are US, British, Russian and French warships stationed in the international waters near Pakistan.

    The Nation also said US military strikes against Afghanistan were launched from US ships stationed in Pakistan's territorial waters in in 1998.

      amusing..

      usually, the US gets the stick from malik and cm, but when the US throws a tit-bit pakistan's way, they are all praises for the great country.

      on one hand, you condemn the US for its missile attacks on afghanistan, the very next instant you are welcoming them to conduct "military exercises" on your soil. next thing you know, we'll be seeing flaming tomahawks leaping into kabul from peshawar with General Musharraf and President Bush jointly pressing the go button in a never-seen-before cooperation between the two countries...

      >This must piss the indians off!!!!<

      you bet we are. anyone would be, at such hypocrasy.
      Simple ain't easy.

              Brainless Pakistanis do not understand the tactics of Americans, they will train the paksitanis and ask Osama in return. What is new of America-Pakistan joint military exercise, it has been going on for years.

                Ah I forgot another Indian obsession apart from China and Pakistan. And that's good old Osama Bin Laden and the great Taliban. India's list of obsession's is quite long nowadays?

                It has been predicted since 1998 that the Americans are doing this or that for Pakistan to help get Osama. Three years on we are still hearing the same mantra? Throw in signing the CTBT and "Jihadi's" and you you'll get the usual hatrick. Are the American's so powerless to get Osmama on their own?

                Maybe the American's just want to rebuild and renew their relations with the most formidable fighting force in South/West Asia i.e. the Pakistan Armned Forces?

                CM is sure right about the Indian's being upset by this news. http://www3.pak.org/gupshup/smilies/smile.gif

                  Actually we have never been US fans.
                  If you read my post, i say it is about time the US pulled into line once again.
                  We are happy for this development for just 2 reasons.
                  And they are purely selfish.
                  1. This would show the West that Pakistan is again in the circle of the US's close friends, and thus would hopefully increase the FDI and lower the sanctions.
                  2. It would give pakistan amry, navy and airforce time and experience working with the excellent US forces.
                  3. This is a maybe, but some equipement deals could be signed.

                  on one hand, you condemn the US for its missile attacks on afghanistan, the very next instant you are welcoming them to conduct "military exercises" on your soil. next thing you know, we'll be seeing flaming tomahawks leaping into kabul from peshawar with General Musharraf and President Bush jointly pressing the go button in a never-seen-before cooperation between the two countries...

                  Well that would never happen, as we would have internal problems with the afghans already in pakistan.
                  And we would not betray a Muslim friend for the US.

                  >This must piss the indians off!!!!<

                  you bet we are. anyone would be, at such hypocrasy.

                  Hey the US is known for hyypocrasy, you should have expected it.
                  even though we did not expect this move of joint military exercises.

                  I would like a reply http://www3.pak.org/gupshup/smilies/smile.gif

                  Malik it seems to have pissed off the dumber elements of the indian people here on this forum.

                    it is good idea at least army general will learn something rathere than influensed by religen alone. it helps them think professional ways.

                      rvikz we don't need to learn about professionalism buddy. We have the most professional army in the region led by the bravest souls of our land. And that is why the American's are coming to us, and not just the American's. Only the other week we made a historic and wide-ranging defence pact with Turkey. And don't forget the excellent military ties we have with the likes of Saudi Arabia, Oman, the UAE and Bahrain among many others.

                      Ah, these Indian's. Why are you guys so upset? http://www3.pak.org/gupshup/smilies/smile.gif

                        True Malik, we are the strongest military power in the ME area.
                        Egypt might have the largest, but we are certainly the best.
                        Heck we have troops stationed in Syria, Saudi, UAE and Jordan.
