Resolution introduced in US House to block sale of F-16 fighter jets to Pakistan


A top US lawmaker has introduced a “joint resolution” in the House of Representatives to express Congress’s disapproval over an arms deal with Pakistan which includes the sale of eight nuclear-capable F-16 fighter jets to the latter.
“The government of Pakistan has been using weapons from the US to repress its own citizens and especially the people of Baluchistan,” Congressman Dana Rohrabacher said on Thursday after he introduced the resolution in the House of Representatives which is similar to Indian Parliament’s lower House, the Lok Sabha.
