Army chief General Deepak Kapoor on Wednesday said that Pakistan was now going well beyond an acceptable level of deterrence in expanding its nuclear arsenal.

"Pakistan is going well beyond the degree of deterrence... it's definitely a matter of concern," said Gen Kapoor while on a visit to the artificial limb centre in Pune.

The General's remarks come amidst reports that Pakistan had increased the number of nuclear warheads it possessed and was working to induct cruise missiles into its arsenal.

On China's intrusion, he said, "No need for alarm. The basic issue is to resolve the border issue." The Army chief said that the media figures on intrusions were not correct.
