Panaji: Union Defence Minister A K Antony
on Saturday said that there could be a fall-out of the killing of
al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden.
"Yesterday, in the meeting (with the army top brass) I
have explained my assessment of the possible security scenario
after the bin Laden incident. There can be a fall-out, so we
need to be more vigilant," he said here while answering a
question.

The minister was talking to reporters at Vasco, near
here, where he had come to commission first and second phase
of Goa Shipyard Limited`s modernisation project.

"I can assure you that our armed forces are on guard," he
said.
He also said the growing relations between China and
Pakistan was a matter of concern. "But the real answer to it
is that we have to strengthen our capabilities, and precisely
that is what we are doing."
