News Story: Pakistan shows concerns over possible U.S.-India arms deal

ISLAMABAD, June 28 (Xinhua) -- Pakistan on Wednesday showed serious concerns at the U.S. arms deal with India, which will disturb military balance in the region, according to a Foreign Ministry statement.

The statement came amid reports that a 2 billion-U.S. dollar sale of unarmed drones to the Indian navy will reportedly be approved by the U.S. government soon. The deal came on the occasion of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Washington.

"Pakistan is also deeply concerned on the sale of advanced military technologies to India. Such sales accentuate military imbalances in the region and undermine strategic stability in South Asia," the Foreign Ministry said.

The statement also criticized the U.S.-India joint statement issued from Washington on Tuesday, saying that the statement is singularly unhelpful in achieving the objective of strategic stability and durable peace in the South Asian region.

PacificSentinel: Pakistan can say this sort of thing all it wants, but since Pakistan created most of the Terrorists in the first place to use against their enemies, they won't get much if any sympathy from anyone.
