ECC green-lights sale of JF-17 jets for Nigeria


The Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) has approved sovereign guarantee certificate over the sale of three JF-17 jets to Nigeria for a sum of $184.3 million, a local media outlet reported on Tuesday.

Nigeria and Pakistan had recently signed an agreement over the sale of JF-17’s for the Nigerian Air force.

Pakistan had requested the African nation that it would issue a certificate of sovereign guarantee rather than a sovereign bank guarantee.

The guarantee deals with ensuring that the jets and associated equipment would be provided by Pakistan.
