Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday has reached America on an official visit and he is to meet with Obama according to the schedule. If these fighter planes F-16 are brought in Pak, it will strengthen the air force of Pakistan. The Pakistan has already stockpiled more than 70 fighter plane F-16; and the dozens of French and Chinese made planes are available.
 According to the report, whether American Congress will approve this proposal of purchase deal or not is not clarified. The American foreign department had approved the purchase deal of military equipments worth 1 million dollar on Pak indent before this.
