The two sides in-principle agreed on the sale of eight submarines that China will provide to Pakistan Navy, The Express Tribune reported.

Agreed... You are absolutely correct.

Chinese Metro is a super Dooper flop , Many countries have cancelled their orders with china ! , India will have to rethink Chinese involvement and better open it for japan !
Maybe, but sitting like a dead duck in the port it will not explode like Hindu-stani subs do..
Don't worry pigistan we Hindustani's are capable of blasting them in your own ports...........
China made MiG 21s are being flown in Pak Airforce with outstanding flight safety record while MiG 21s flown by Blackies airforce crashes every 30 days.
you mean to say the outstanding records of chinese toy drone which crashed due to battery failure and porkis started to celebrate that it got a reason to blame India .
it seems porkis are daydreaming about the scrap they are going to buy from Chinese... but question is how you are going to pa the 4 instalments???????
by the aid from USA or going to beg in from of UAE???
GOOD AND BAD FOR BOTH PARTIES, AS CHINA IS DESPERATE TO SELL ITS ARMS HARDWARE TO COMPETE WITH WESTERN AND RUSSIAN SUPPLIERS. BAD FOR BOTH PARTIES, AS HOW WILL PAKISTAN PAY FOR THESE, EVEN IN FOUR INSTALLMENTS? WHAT WILL THEY SELL TO PAY? OR WILL THE USA MONEY-AID BE USED HERE? THEN IT IS BAD FOR USA.
