    Minister: Malaysia may send some old missiles to Pakistan for upgrading

    KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) _ Malaysia may send some of its old missiles to Pakistan to be refurbished and upgraded, Defense Minister Najib Razak said Monday.

    Najib, quoted by the national news agency, Bernama, said under a defense deal signed last year, Malaysia would buy two types of new missiles from Pakistan. "Some of our existing missiles may be refurbished in that country," he added.

    He was speaking to local reporters after holding talks Monday with Pakistani Air Force Chief Marshall Mushaf Ali Mir, who is in Malaysia for a six-day official visit until Thursday.

    Najib did not specify what type of missiles might be upgraded by Pakistan. However, Bernama reported that Malaysia had two types that had been in service since the 1970s and were in need of upgrading _ Exocet MM38s and AIM-9 Sidewinders.

    In February last year, Malaysia agreed to buy anti-tank and surface-to-air missiles from Pakistan as part of a defense deal worth 446 million ringgit (dlrs 117 million).

    Malaysia is on a major defense spending spree, signing contracts last week worth nearly two billion ringgit (dlrs 526 million) for hardware ranging from assault rifles to sophisticated European- and Russian- made missile systems. The country is also negotiating the purchase of its first submarines.

    In remarks meant to cool fears of a regional arms race, Najib has said the purchases had been planned for years but were delayed by the Asian financial crisis that engulfed the region in 1997-98.

        M'sian Missiles May Be Sent To Pakistan For Refurbishment, Says Najib
        http://www3.bernama.com/general/ge1504_12.htm

        KUALA LUMPUR, April 15 (Bernama) -- Malaysia may send its missiles to Pakistan to be refurbished and to upgrade their capacity using the technology of the nuclear nation, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said today.

        He said the missiles would be refurbished and upgraded under the defence cooperation between the two governments.

        "Malaysia has ordered two types of missiles -- Baktar-Shikan and Anza MK II -- from Pakistan. Some of our existing missiles may be refurbished in that country," he told reporters after receiving Pakistani Air Force Chief Marshall Mushaf Ali Mir at his ministry.

        The anti-tank Baktar-Shikan and anti-aircraft Anza missiles were part of the RM446 million weaponry purchase package from Pakistan announced by Malaysia in February last year.

        Najib, however, did not specify the type of missiles to be upgraded but the Malaysian armed forces have two types of old missiles which might require technology upgrading after being in service since the 1970s.
