Pakistan has expressed serious concern over India’s recent development of an anti-ballistic missile system, according to a report in The Indian Express.

India had successfully test-fired an indigenously-developed supersonic interceptor missile, capable of destroying any incoming ballistic missile on 15 May, off the coast of Odisha.

The development of an anti-ballistic missile system (ABM) may give India a false sense of security, leading to unexpected complications. Such actions are also contrary to the policy of a peaceful and friendly neighbourhood, which our prime minister (Nawaz Sharif) has repeatedly espoused.

Aziz also said that the Pakistan’s defence capabilities will be strengthened as they have serious concerns over India’s missiles.

The criticism came in the meeting of the nation’s Senate on Tuesday, the report said.
