ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Army extended the deadline for Turkish Military Helicopters delivery after US blockade.
The Pakistan Army extended the deadline for Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) to deliver the T129 attack helicopter link , *Anadolu Agency *reported.
Washington also threatened not to sell F-35 fighter jets to Turkey if it continued to receive weapons from Russia.
The political wrangling may jeopardize the $1.5 billion helicopter deal between Turkey and Pakistan with the US said to be blocking the third-party delivery of those engines.
However, President of Turkey’s Defence Industries (SSB), Dr. Ismail Demir, said last week that both Pakistan and Turkey are working to secure the exports, with Islamabad giving Ankara one year to resolve the problem.
