Azerbaijan got angry with a step taken by the Indian government, now it has made an agreement with our enemy country

Amid ongoing tensions with Azerbaijan over the India-Armenia arms deal, the Eurasian country has signed a major arms deal with Pakistan. Azerbaijan has signed an agreement to purchase JF-17 Block-III fighter jets from Pakistan worth $1.6 billion.

The agreement signed between Pakistan Aeronautical Complex, Pakistan's leading defense contractor, and the Air Force of Azerbaijan is the largest ever export contract in the history of Pakistan. This agreement also includes training with JF-17 fighter aircraft.

Pakistan Aeronautical Complex is a large company that manufactures aircraft and other equipment for the Pakistan Army. It was started in the year 1971 by Pakistan Air Force. The company works with Turkish and Chinese companies for some of its products.

Azerbaijan was angry with India-Armenia defense agreement

There is a bitter rivalry going on between Europe and Asia between Azerbaijan and its neighboring country Armenia. Both countries have been fighting for their control over the Nagorno-Karabakh region. In 2023, Azerbaijan won the war and annexed the Nagorno-Karabakh region.

Following the defeat of Karabakh in 2023, Armenia signed a major arms deal with India and France, covering the purchase of air defense systems and armored vehicles, among other weapons. Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev is angry over the arms deal between India and France with Armenia.

Aliyev said in December 2023, countries like France and India are adding fuel to the fire by supplying arms to Armenia. This country is creating an illusion in Armenia that it can take back Karabakh with the help of these weapons.

Azerbaijan has also been supporting Pakistan on Kashmir issue.

Azerbaijan has often stood with Pakistan on the issue of Kashmir. Former Ambassador of Azerbaijan to India Ashraf Shikaliev had said some time ago that his country maintains a cooperative attitude with Pakistan on the issue of Kashmir.
