New Delhi, Feb 23 (UNI) Army Chief General Deepak Kapoor has said the country was a ''little worried'' when things were turbulent in Pakistan, and expressed hope that the security situation in that country would improve and stabilise after the elections.

He also said that the dialogue would be held with the new democratically elected government in Pakistan to resolve some of the differences between the two countries.

''With the elections now having taken place, I think the security situation in Pakistan, if it now gets stabilised, should improve,'' Gen Kapoor said in an interview here.

''When things were turbulent, we were a little worried and therefore very vigilant on the borders. But, now that the elections have taken place.'' ''Hopefully, in the next few days they (Pakistan) will have a government (and) we would be able to talk to a democratically elected government to resolve some of our differences,'' the Army Chief said.

During the recent turmoil and turbulence in Pakistan, Gen Kapoor said he was not worried that the Pakistani Army would carry out adventurous action against India to divert attention from troubles at home.

''With the kind of commitment the Pakistan Army has on its western borders as well as within the country, the possibility of this kind of adventurism would not be very high,'' he said in the interview to CNN-IBN for its Devil's Advocate programme, to be telecast tomorrow night.
