Regarding the delivery of the AWACS system to Pakistan, the air chief said that an agreement had already been reached with a Chinese company to start delivery until 2010. Lanka has nothing to gain from this pact. The agreement seems strange……..”The agreement was reached during Sharif`s three-day trip to Colombo, during which the two sides also signed eight agreements in the fields of education, science and technology, health, agriculture, tourism, sports contacts, cultural exchanges and people-to-people contacts.?A cultural exchange between the two will only destabilize Lanka. Since 2010, with the FC-1 in direct competition with the MiG-29 in the international market, Russian aircraft manufacturers have raised concerns about the re-export of the FC-1`s RD-93 engines. The FC-1 faces the MiG-29 in an Egyptian tender for 32 fighter jets.  Mikhail Pogosyan, head of the MiG and Sukhoi design bureaus, recommended that the Russian defense export agency Rosoboronexport block the sale of RD-93 engines to China in order to prevent the JF-17 from competing with the MiG-29 on the international market.  On July 19, 2010, according to a CATIC official, China and Russia had already signed a contract to supply 100 RD-93 engines and an agreement to supply 500 engines to the Farnborough Air Show. The official said China had “received nothing through official channels” and believes that “the engine remains an option for exported aircraft.”  At the same fair, the JF-17 was exhibited for the first time internationally.  It was initially reported that JF-17 would be taking aerial photos at the show, but it was cancelled due to the late decision to go to Farnborough and the licensing and insurance fees.  He stated that the agreement between Pakistan and China on the supply of the J-10 aircraft was intact and that these aircraft would be delivered to PAF in 2014-15. The aircraft would be modernized in accordance with PAF requirements and delivered as FC-20. .
