Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) agreed on Tuesday to enhance defense cooperation between the two countries during a visit by a high-raking delegation to Pakistan led by Lieutenant General Hamad Mohamed Thani Al Rumaithy, Chief of Staff of the UAE.

According to Pakistan militaryآ’s Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), Lieutenant General Hamad Mohamed Thani Al Rumaithy called on the top military leadership of the country including General Rashad Mahmood, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC) and Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif at the General Headquarters (photo).

Brigadier General Saleh Mohamed Saleh Alameri, Commander of the UAE Land Forces and Head of Pak-UAE Defense Cooperation Committee accompanied the UAE Chief-of-Staff.

Both dignitaries discussed matters related to professional interest and mutual cooperation between the two Armed Forces. They also discussed current security situation in the Middle East.

The visit was part of bilateral measures to enhance cooperation between the two Armed Forces.

Last month, Pakistan’s Army Chief General Raheel Sharif, during his visit to the UAE on 22 February 2015, discussed bilateral defence and security cooperation as well as collaboration and regional security with the top UAE defense leaders.

The Chief of Army Staff (COAS) held then separate meetings with Chief-of-Staff of the UAE Armed Forces General Hamad Mohammed Thani Al Rumeithy and other senior military officials to discuss matters of mutual interest and bilateral defense ties of the two countries.

The UAE leadership appreciated Pakistan’s achievements in fight against terrorism especially Operation Zarb-e-Azb and showed keen interest to enhance training exchanges with Pakistan Army.

General Raheel Sharif also visited the International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX) at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center. He toured stalls of various countries including China, Russia, UAE and Pakistan at the show.
