Jordan considers Pakistan’s defence sector as a strategic industry, said Jordanian Ambassador to Pakistan Ibrahim Almadani, who was greatly impressed to see the quality of Pakistan’s defence industry products.

During his visit to the Defence Export Promotion Organisation (DEPO) along with Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI) President Sardar Yasir Ilyas Khan, the envoy said that Jordan considered Pakistan’s defence capability as a source of strength for it.

He stated that Jordan could learn from the expertise and competency of Pakistan in the field of defence. DEPO Acting Director-General Commodore Naeem Anwar briefed the ambassador and the ICCI chief about Pakistan’s defence products and services.

He said Pakistan’s defence manufacturing sector was capable of meeting bulk requirements of foreign customers in the areas of medium technology as well as selected areas of high technology. He added that Pakistan could offer high-grade weapon systems, basic and advanced trainers and jet fighters, surface-to-air and anti-tank missile systems.
