Qatar bought these not because they can operate them optimally, but as protection money to the West. Pakistan too can play the same game, sell JF-17s as a package - with weapons, fighter pilots, training, maintenance. That is something the West is unable to offer.Qatar operates latest F-15 variant, Eurofighter typhoon, Rafale and Mirage. The chance for Qatar buying JF-17 is slim. Why would Saudi Arabia block the deal and why would Pakistan listen to Saudi Arabia when conducting business? Qatar is like the size of Al-Khobar city if not smaller. If things go south, Qatar will get spanked without military involvement.
