Foreign Office of Pakistan has expressed its concern over sale of Harpoon Block II Air Launched Missiles from United States to India.

During a weekly briefing at the Foreign Office, the Spokesperson Aisha Farooqui said that the sale of such missile systems, along with technical assistance and logistic support at the time when there is a global effort to fight the pandemic is particularly disturbing.

She said that Pakistan has articulated its concerns regarding the sale of sophisticated weapons to India which would further destabilize the region.

“Pakistan has alerted the international community many times about India’s aggressive designs not only towards Pakistan but also towards other neighboring countries in South Asia.”

She said that sale of the weapons would destabilize the already volatile situation in South Asia. There is a high possibility of India conducting a false flag operation while global efforts are directed towards combating the pandemic, the foreign office said.
