PM to induct new ship into Pakistan Navy fleet tomorrow

ISLAMABAD: A major warship 17,000 tonnes Fleet Tanker will be inducted in the Pakistan Navy tomorrow (Friday) that would enhance its logistic capabilities. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will be launching the warship. The Fleet Tanker has been built in collaboration with STM of Turkey under the ambit of the Ministry of Defence Production and the Pakistan Navy.

Federal Minister for Defence Production Rana Tanveer Hussain and Chief of the Naval Staff (CNS) Admiral Zakaullah will brief the prime minister about the salient features of the product. Turkey’s Ambassador to Pakistan Sadik Babur Girgin has also been invited for the ceremony.

The Pakistan Navy Fleet Tanker will play an important role in catering to the needs of the Pakistan Navy in meeting its logistical needs.

The prime minister is arriving in Karachi for a day-long visit where he will spend a hectic day. It would be his first visit to the metropolis in about three months and the first after his recovery from the cardiac surgery performed in London in May last. The prime minster will have meeting with Governor Sindh Dr. Ishratul Ebad and Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah at Karachi airport. Corp Commander Karachi Lieutenant General Naveed Mukhtar is also expected to have a meeting with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

He will also have a brief review of the law and order situation in the province and particularly the ongoing operation in Karachi against terrorists and criminals.

Pakistan and Turkey are time tested friends. Joint ventures like construction of this Fleet Tanker will further strengthen our mutual bonds characterised by faith, common heritage, shared civilisation and commonality of interests. This initiative will certainly open more opportunities for further cooperation between Pakistan and Turkey in the field of indigenous warship construction and other defence sector products.

Launching of this ship, two months ahead of the schedule, is indeed a gift from the brotherly people and the government of Turkey to the nation on its Independence Day celebrations.
