India Worries Russia




MOSCOW -- Russia, a longstanding ally of India, said Thursday it was worried by India's shooting down of a Pakistani naval aircraft earlier this week.


Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif called the downing of the plane with the loss of 16 lives "barbaric" and "cowardly" and said it would complicate peace talks between the archrivals.


The Foreign Ministry said in a statement the incident Tuesday had caused concern in Moscow and expressed hope it would not lead to a "new bout of tension in relations."
