China has agreed an export deal with Pakistan to send a batch of military-grade drones to the country.

The agreement comes just days after Russia and India signed a multi-billion pound arms deal, in what has been described as anti-US ‘sabre rattling’.

According to a report from the Express, the advanced military drone to be shipped out to Pakistan will be the 48 Wing Loong II UCAV.
