NEW YORK: At United Nation, Pakistan has warned the international community that India's aggressive policies and military posture posed an immediate threat to world peace and security.

Speaking in the general debate, Permanent Representative of Pakistan to the United Nations Munir Akram said that India had nuclearized the Indian Ocean, deployed anti-ballistic missiles and is constantly increasing the range, sophistication and diversification of all types of delivery systems and platforms.

He said Pakistan desires peace and strategic stability to achieve socio-economic development and its conduct continues to be defined by restraint and responsibility, and avoidance of an arms race.

The envoy said that peace and stability in South Asia is not possible without resolving the core issue of Jammu and Kashmir; without agreeing on reciprocal measures for nuclear and missile restraint; and without instituting a balance between conventional forces.

He said Pakistan's proposal for a strategic restraint regime in South Asia, based on these inter-locking elements, remains on the table.
