Pakistan, Oct. 16 -- Ambassador Munir Akram in a tough speech to the United Nations General Assembly's First Committee warned the international community that India's "aggressive policies and military posture" posed an immediate threat to world peace and security.

This was especially true for Pakistan, against which New Delhi has deployed its offensive capability, the top diplomat added.

"India's aggressive posture and actions are accompanied by one of the world's largest military acquisition and development programmes, with over $70 billion spent last year on new conventional and non-conventional weapons systems on land, sea, air and space," Akram said in the committee, that deals with disarmament and international security issues.
