New Delhi, Nov 20: IAF Vice Chief Air Marshal P K Barbora, who created quite an uproar with his controversial statement on woman fighter pilots has said that Pakistan is better than India in terms of defence.

Stating that India's defence exports has always been troubled by political interference, Barbora said, " The internal politics over the years is such that whatever defence requirements are cleared by the government, they are opposed by the opposition parties and the same happens when roles change and opposition sits in government."

Addressing a CII seminar on energising aviation sector in India, he said that politics over defence purchases has impinged badly on the country's military requirements.

Barbora also said that he never intended to create any controversy when he made his controversial statement on woman fighter pilots.
