Pakistan and Saudi Arabia military ties are moving faster than even cruise missiles. There seems to be some truth that Pakistan was deploying 30000 troops on the soil of its friend and financier Saudi Arabia to deal with any eventual Egypt and Syria like scenario in coming days.
Now Pakistani newspapers are reporting that Pakistani army chief Gen. Rahil Shareef has gone to Saudi Arabia to witness military exercise there. It seems continuation of the military co-operation between two Sunni nations.
Saudis parade nuclear missiles for the first time in defiance of US-Iranian nuclear accord
Saudi Arabia became the first Middle East nation to publicly exhibit its nuclear-capable missiles. The long-range, liquid propellant DF-3 ballistic missile (NATO designated CSS-2), purchased from China 27 years ago, was displayed for the first time at a Saudi military parade Tuesday, April 29, in the eastern military town of Hafar Al-Batin, at the junction of the Saudi-Kuwaiti-Iraqi borders.
The DF-3 has a range of 2,650 km and carries a payload of 2,150 kg. It is equipped with a single nuclear warhead with a 1-3 MT yield.
