New Delhi, June 24: Describing the slow pact of military purchases "a major concern", Defence Minister Arun Jaitley Tuesday said several decisions in the pipeline need to be expedited.

"Key matter of concern is the slow pace of acquisition of equipment and assets that are required," the minister told the media here.

"Several decisions in the pipeline are good cases for these processes to be expedited," he added.

"The entire resources of the country, notwithstanding various pressures, have to be made available in significant amount for those in defence of the country," said Jaitley.
