In the wake of India’s security concerns, France has issued directions to keep Pakistan origin technicians, away from the Rafale fighter jet under the export control regime.

France has also told Qatar, one of the countries that bought the Rafale jets, not to allow Pakistan origin technicians to work with the plane. This is because the Pakistan origin technicians could leak information about the jets to Islamabad.
