India's defence ministry has been authorised by the cabinet to buy 12 used French-built Mirage 2000 jet fighters from Qatar.
It is part of a massive defence purchase package worth more than $700m.
The move comes days after the US announced it was going ahead with sales of its F-16 fighter jets to Pakistan, despite opposition from India.

I wouldn't call any of them 'best friends' especially when you see who lent Pakistan the spanking new Star Fighters during the last major war.

I don't believe that India wants another jet from another country. Right now they have to support fighters from Russia, India, and France. Alot of different spare parts from different sources to deal with.
