WASHINGTON: Expressing concern over India's recent ballistic missile launch, the US has said such actions could potentially "increase" the risk to nuclear security and have an impact on regional security.
"We're concerned by any nuclear and missile developments that could potentially increase the risk to nuclear security risk or lower the threshold for nuclear use," the State Department spokesman, Mark Toner, told reporters.
"So we continue to urge all states with nuclear weapons to exercise restraint regarding their missile and nuclear capabilities," Toner said when asked about recent ballistic missile test by India.
He said the State Department official had shared its concerns with New Delhi.
US, Russia, China, and Pakistan can do it but not India. US will sell ARMS to Pakistan it is OK. India Must no buy ARMS from US, better buy the latest from Israel,Europe and Russia. Why support US when they always Support Pakistan by Financing them and selling or donating arms to them.
We are very much disturbed by american weapon program and its application in different parts of world- veitnam iraq afghanistan yemen syria. You are disturbing the world balance and even threatening its surviving chances. More disturbing is your support to terrorist country like pakistan to save your countrymen from pakistani bullet and rdx in usa. Selling arms to saudia arabia , you are destructing middle east. So please dont act like sage. India support destruction of all nuclear weapons, if you really love peace please do it, or keep quiet.
US is the country which started the nuclear arms race and its the only nation to ever use a Nuclear Bomb and thats too on a civilian target killing hundred thousands.
India is surrounded by hostile countries and has every right to prepare for self defense. US mind your own business.
They can produce all nuclear arms and launce missiles but for other country they have to get the prior permission from them. They can arm Pakistan but we should not procure arms and ammunition for self defence. What a logic.
Where was this fear when pakistan was developing nuclear missile and warheads with money they gave? will regional stability no harmed by supplying F16's to pakistan? US is biggest supporter of terrorist
So US too needs to stop injecting F16's into states sponsoring terrorism in that very region. How is it right when US wants to sell arms to Pakistan and not when India test a missile launch?
If Pakistan does the same then US has no problem.
HAhahaha.. U can expect this from Uncle Sam as India had refused to patrol the South China sea in collaboration with Uncle Sam...
P S H Y RAJU
U S has no business in showing concern over our Missile Launch. The Govt of India should tell them clearly not to interfere in our developments
America want that he only can do anything what he want but no other country,then he can become super power of the world, he is scared that he loose his Super Power status.
US sale of arms to Pak has led to arms race in South Asia

US has no fears when Pakistan does it .
