The first ever edition of the Shaheen-IX Joint Air Exercise held back at 2011 in PAKISTAN. Since then, the exercise held alternatively in both countries, PAKISTAN and CHINA.

Last month, both the Iron Brothers PAKISTAN and CHINA signed the highly significant Defense Pact to further increase the Bilateral Defense Ties between the Two Iron Brother Countries. The agreement was signed during the high profile visit of CHINESE Minister of Defense And State Councilor General Wei Fenghe.

It is pertinent to mention that both the Iron Brothers, PAKISTAN and CHINA, are strategic partners and the recent attempts by india to illegally change the geography of the region have further pushed the Two Longtime allies to each other.

The Shaheen-IX Joint Air Drills has a great strategic importance for both the Air Forces of PAKISTAN and CHINA. The recent edition of the Shaheen-IX Exercise will help to further augment and strengthen the Defense Ties and Bilateral Military to Military Relations between the ARMED, AIR and NAVAL FORCES of both the All Weather Strategic Partners and Iron Brother Countries.
