BEIJING (BNS): Indian defence deal with Russia and US ends up in millions of dollars, China came up with this statement after supporting its defence deal of frigates and submarines with Pakistan, according to a media report here.

Pakistan's deal with China on defence equipment can cause tension for its neighbouring countries, but Pakistan is an independent country and is free to modernize its military power, the China Daily said in a report.

Pakistan naval chief Noman Bhasir, who was on a visit to China, said that his country's proposal in submarine cooperation was aimed at Pakistan's sea border protection.

According to the report, Pakistan is planning to buy bigger warships from China besides submarines and frigates. Pakistan has ordered overall eight F22P frigates for its navy since 2005.

"The initiative may invite concerns from its neighbouring countries. But the doubts are unnecessary, China Daily quoted Zhai Dequan, deputy director of China Arms Control and Disarmament Association, as saying.
