    Pakistan feels concerned and distressed over the current race between the big Powers for being the first to give the latest military equipment to India, which is boosting India's aggressive designs. “We cannot but feel distressed and concerned over this situation which is fast developing and which poses a serious threat to Pakistan’s security,” a Foreign Office spokesman said yesterday.

    He was asked to comment on Indian Defence Minister Krishna Menon’s latest statement regarding Kashmir in the course of which he had said that “India had never abjured the use of force”. This and other similar threats earlier held out by Messrs Nehru and Sanjiva Reddy “are not idle threats”, the spokesman said.

    The competition between the big Powers for having the distinction of being the first to give the latest equipment and aircraft to India “is bound to alter materially the military balance against Pakistan, to increase instability in the region, and will add to the nervousness of smaller neighbouring countries”.

    It is presumed in knowledgeable quarters that Pakistan must have conveyed its views on this race to such of her allies as are in it. In this context it may be noted that India is already quietly developing nuclear capability.

    It is apparent that behind the façade of an imminent showdown with China, India is securing arms and equipment and aircraft in pursuance of its aggressive designs against Pakistan.

    Seriously, what makes the Pakhanis think that they can ever aim for any kind of "parity" with India? Silly people.

    It will take them decades to accept that they are destined to be a fourth-rung nation. And by the time they accept, the nation would have broken up.

    Looks funny - Krishna Menon in 2012 , but still posted both - the Krishna Menon's article and this one , as it is .
    This article says - This and other similar threats earlier held out by Messrs Nehru and Sanjiva Reddy “are not idle threats”, the spokesman said.

    So it is SM Krishna , not Krishna Menon .
    OR
    I am wrong .
