LAHORE - The US display of military might in South China and encouragement of its allies like India to follow suit is creating a flammable situation in the region, said PTI leader Dr Shireen Mazari yesterday.

In a statement, Dr Mazari, expressing deep concern over the growing military tensions in the South China Sea , said it was the direct consequence of US adventurism in the region. “This new militaristic policy of the US is part of its global expansionist doctrine and bodes ill for peace and security,” said the PTI leader who is a member of National Assembly Standing Committees on Foreign Affairs and Defence.
