Islamabad: Pakistan on Thursday expressed its unhappiness over a just-concluded USD 2.9 billion arms deal between India and Russia, a media report said.

Commenting on the arms agreement, Pakistani Foreign Office spokesperson Moazzam Ahmad Khan said that anything which may initiate a nuclear or conventional arms race will not augur well for the region, a news agency reported.

The defence agreement was signed in New Delhi during a visit by Russian President Vladimir Putin. Under the deal, India will buy 42 Sukhoi Su-30 fighter jets and 71 Mi-17 helicopters, among others.
