Russia's Kalashnikov and NPO Bazalt has offered to set up license manufacturing of AK-308 and RPG-29 in Pakistan repectively.

Do you mean ak-108? Never heard of ak-308.

PA’s requirement for its next gen assault rifle is that it will be manufactured at POF and there will be transfer of technology so this news doesn’t change anything.

Also the assault rifle programme appears to be on hold.

​nope AK-308 is revealed just few weeks back, but it is based on AK-103 which according to John who was representing US rifle in recent trial Pakistan has purchased/ordered around 140K, so there might be a good chance for this rifle as well

Since AK-103 is chambered in 7.62x39mm and Ak-308 is 7.72x54 both of these ammo are manufactured at POF, therefore, supply of ammo should not be an issue. With SCAR L and along with CZ are chambered in 5.56×45mm and the ammo for these has to be imported from South Korea.
