India's Itself a Competitor in Arms Race, Why Cry Over Only 8 F-16s for Pakistan
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s Special Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz has said that strategic balance in South Asia is pivotal for regional peace.
Talking to a news channel channel, he regretted India’s objection to sale of eight F-16 fighter jets to Pakistan.
Sartaj Aziz said that India is engaged in big arms deals with the United States, Russia, and other countries but it is making hue and cry over purchase of F-16 jets, which is unfortunate.
He said the United States has taken a very clear stance that the jets are being provided to Pakistan to combat terrorism.
India recently had the biggest arms deal buying five S-400 air defense systems from Russia costing around $4.5-$6 billion. The deal was suppose to include 140 Sukhoi Su-30MK fighter jets as well.
