Malaysia has accepted the offer from Pakistan to jointly manufacture tactical unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and satellites that will boost the country defence industry. Pakistan had offered to manufacture these specialised items for Malaysia on large scale that will benefit both the countries and their security concerns.
Malaysian Defence Ministry has expressed its confidence in Pakistan’s ability to deliver on their said offer and on other strategic assets and equipment. Malaysia and Pakistan are both expected to cooperate in joint exercises, training, education and exchange of officers. UAVs are effective for intelligence agencies as piracy, illegal trafficking of goods, people, drugs, illegal fishing can be monitor and caught.
Many intelligence and defence agencies around the world have now started using UAVs for monitoring illegal immigrants, smuggling and other maritime border crimes. Although it has been politically very sensitive amongst different countries to share intelligence with each other during an era which has seen so much spread of violence.
Pakistan is fighting at the forefronts of the War On Terror and yet the U.S. which has better intelligence technology refuses to share it with Pakistan. With the implementation of such technology as the UAVs and satellites monitoring and stopping terrorists and their plots would be helpful. Without invading an individual’s privacy, it is necessary that the government keeps sight of those who are in the midst of the people to create chaos.
