Adviser to the Pakistani Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz, in an apparent response to India’s successful indigenous supersonic interceptor missile test, said on Monday that Pakistan would address the development at an international level, Radio Pakistan reported.
Expressing concern over India’s missile test, Aziz said “It will disturb the balance of power in the region”, and added that Pakistan will continue to upgrade its defensive capabilities by acquiring advanced technology.
“India is enjoying the cooperation of the United States, as Washington thinks a strong India is vital to contain China”, he said. The adviser said Pakistan would raise its voice at the international level against India’s increasing missile technology capabilities.
Sartaj Aziz’s statement comes just a day after India successfully test-fired indigenously developed supersonic interceptor missile, capable of destroying any incoming ballistic missile, from a test range off Odisha coast. The missile was launched at 11.15 am from the launching complex. The success of Advanced Air Defence interceptor (Prithvi-II) missile test now strengthens India’s position in the very exclusive Ballistic Missile Defence club of the US, Russia and Israel. Source
