Report: Pakistan to respond soon Report: Pakistan to respond soon to Israel-India Phalcon deal


Pakistan will respond soon to a deal signed between India and Israel for the sale of three advanced Phalcon early-warning spy planes, Army Radio on Saturday quoted a senior Pakistani official as saying.
The official was quoted as saying that the deal "violates the strategic balance in south Asia," and that the Pakistani administration would respond to the sale with all means available to it.

But there's a bright side!

The director general of the Defense Ministry, Amos Yaron, said Friday that the signing of the Phalcon deal represents a significant breakthrough for the defense industry.

"The Phalcon deal will contribute to the Israeli economy," he said, "and improve the reputation of the Israeli defense industry in the global market."
