r/worldnews – Paris declines Pakistani request to upgrade French-made jets and submarines after Imran Khan’s support for Erdoğan.
This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 67%. (I’m a bot)
After Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan strongly defended Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an’s claim that French President Emmanuel Macron is Islamophobic and to boycott Made In France products, Pakistan had the courage to request to Paris to upgrade its French-made fighters jets, submarines and air defense systems.
The Pakistani Air Force has about 150 Dassault Aviation Mirage fighter jets, comprising of Mirage III and Mirage 5, as well as three Agosta 90B submarines built by French firm Naval Group and a French-Italian made air defense system.
Khan wrote an open letter to leaders of Muslim-majority countries that asked them to unite against “Growing Islamophobia in non-Muslim states” and Pakistan’s National Assembly made an embarrassing demand to recall the Pakistani ambassador to Paris.
