Defence Minister AK Antony on Saturday expressed concern over cross-border terrorism and proliferation of ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons in India’s neighbourhood.
Speaking in Singapore at the Shangri La Dialogue on the role of China and India in building international stability, Antony said India still had unresolved border issues and it had been facing the abovementioned challenges for over two decades.
The minister said Sino-India relations had undergone a significant improvement.
On Pakistan, he said the composite dialogue had changed the climate of Indo-Pak ties for the better.
However, he emphasised that that it was imperative for Pakistan to deliver on its commitment not to permit any territory under its control to be used for supporting terrorism.
