Islamabad ‘Deeply Concerned’ By India-US Defence Deals – Pakistan Foreign Office



Pakistan has expressed concern over the defense deals signed between India and the United States. The Pakistan foreign office said they were especially concerned with the sale of sophisticated weapons to India asserting that it would further destabilize the region.

“We have alerted the international community several times about India’s aggressive designs not only towards Pakistan but towards other countries in the region as well,” Foreign Office spokesperson Aisha Farooqui told a weekly press briefing here.

Pakistan’s foreign office said that Islamabad had shared this with the international community. “The rhetoric and threatening language of the Indian leadership, be it civilian or military, against Pakistan is something that we obviously take very seriously and have shared our concern with the international community”.

Earlier, India and the US signed defense deals worth $3 billion during Donald Trump’s two-day visit to India. The deal includes the acquisition of 24 MH-60 Romeo helicopters at a cost of $2.6 billion. Another contract to procure six AH-64E Apache helicopters for $800 million from the US was also sealed.

The Apache helicopters will have two key roles – to provide direct and accurate close air support for ground troops, and second, the anti-tank role to destroy enemy armor companies. The induction of the Apache fleet came over six months after India carried out an airstrike in Balakot, Pakistan. The IAF demanded to further bolster its combat capabilities to deal effectively deal with any security threat along both India-Pakistan and India-China border.

The MH-60 multi-role Romeo Sikorsky helicopters are expected to give an immense boost to the Indian Navy in expanding its role in the Indian Ocean Region (IOR). This was a long-pending demand of the Indian Navy, which was approved by the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) a week ahead of US President Donald Trump’s visit to India.
