NEW DELHI, March 19 � Modernising its armed forces along the borders with China and Pakistan, India has emerged as the world�s largest importer of arms, a global think tank report said today.

The report pointed out that China, which was the largest recipient of arms exports in 2002�2006, fell to fourth place in 2007�11 due to decline in the volume of Chinese imports along with improvements in China�s arms industry and rising arms exports. �India was the world�s largest recipient of arms, accounting for 10 per cent of global arms imports between 2007 to 2011,� the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) said in its latest report.

In the field of arms import, India has left behind both Pakistan and China along with Singapore and South Korea, the report said.
