A senior Pakistani official said on Wednesday that the defense industry of Pakistan is keen to seek international alliances, Emirates News Agency reported.

Director General of Pakistan's Defense Exports Promotion Organization Sayed Absar Hussain said his country's "robust defense manufacturing industry is in perpetual quest for seeking international alliances to meet both the requirements of its armed forces and the following needs of the regional defense forces, provide an ideal platform for defense collaboration."

Hussain made the remark at the International Defense Exhibition (IDEX) 2007, the eighth edition of the largest arms fair in the Middle East which is currently held in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates.

"The changing international security milieu has brought governments and militaries closer together to share their ideas and plans to meet the requirements to maintain regional and global peace", he said.

Hussain added that many potential purchasers have shown interest in Pakistani defense products, including assorted caliber ammunition, small arms, Al Khalid tanks, Baktar Shikan anti-tank missile, Anza mark II anti-aircraft missile, etc.

"Orders worth 100 million U.S. dollars are expected to be materialized after IDEX 2007," Hussain said.
