Disappointed At India’s Reaction To F-16 Deal With US: Pak
Pakistan on Sunday expressed surprise and disappointment over Indian government’s reaction to a United States’ announcement notifying the sale of eight F-16 fighter jets to Islamabad.
“We are surprised and disappointed at the Indian government’s reaction. Their army and arsenal stock is much larger and they are the largest importer of defence equipment,” Foreign Office spokesperson Qazi Khalilullah said in response to media queries about recent Indian anguish over the announcement.
Pakistan reiterated the Obama Administration's justification that the acquisition would enhance the country's precision strike capability to combat terrorism.
