The decision to buy JF-17 fighter aircraft from China and Pakistan has come back to haunt Myanmar. The JF-17 fighter jet, which has been jointly built by China and Pakistan, has become a burden for the Myanmar Air Force.
According to an ET report, Pakistan has had to send a team of engineers to Myanmar to fix these JF-17 fighter jets. Myanmar currently has 11 JF-17 fighter jets but none are currently operational due to technical glitches.
All the JF-17 planes, which were sold to Myanmar by Pakistan, have developed structural cracks and other technical problems. Myanmar, which is engaged in a conflict against rebel groups, lacks the technical expertise to deal with the JF-17 problem on its own.
Meanwhile, former Myanmar Prime Minster Aung San Suu Kyi has been sentenced to prison for breaching state secrets.
