Pakistan Army may get free American armored vehicles

ISLAMABAD – As US lead coalition forces withdrawing from Afghanistan pretty soon, Pakistan and US higher-ups have been negotiating possible handover of Mine Resistant-Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles to Pakistan Army for free.

US Military Pakistan

The country’s largest media group quoted one anonymous source from Pakistan Army as saying “We will not take it for the sake of just taking it, and we will not take it because it’s free. We will take it because we need it.”

However, until now no official agreement or decision has been reached.

It is worth mentioning here that after killing of Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan in 2011, US sales of weapons to Pakistan has been dramatically reduced.
