Pakistan Expresses Concerns Over India’s Drone Technology, Says Its ‘Worrying’


Pakistan on Wednesday voiced its concern over
the development of sophisticated drone technology by India, describing it as “worrying”. Foreign Office spokesman Mohammad Faisal was
asked at the weekly media briefing to comment on India’s Rustam 2 which was being developed
on the lines of the US predator drones for surveillance and reconnaissance purposes. “India’s development of drone technology is
worrying when seen in the larger context of its buildup and expansion of military capabilities
in the conventional and non-conventional domains, which are subjecting regional strategic stability
to increasing strain,” he said. He also said that the use of drone technology
should be consistent with the principles of the UN Charter, international humanitarian
law and other established norms of responsible state behavior. Faisal also said that India’s “belligerent
posture” along LoC and the Working Boundary has implications for not only Pakistan but
also the region. “Pakistan continues to give a measured and
befitting response to the Indian ceasefire violations. It is regrettable that India resorts to such
untoward acts that are detrimental to the peace and stability of the entire region,
he said. Faisal also said that India had a knee jerk
tendency of leveling baseless allegations against Pakistan.
