Islamabad: A top Pakistani foreign affairs advisor on Tuesday expressed deep concern over India’s growing military power, media reported.

Adviser to prime minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz said that if India’s growing military power was not checked, Pakistan will be “forced to increase its strategic power” too, Dawn online reported.

“The international community should avoid steps which may disturb the strategic balance in South Asia,” Aziz warned.
