Washington, Dec. 27 (ANI): Pakistan's decision of mobilising it's troops to its eastern border with India is being touted as a trick to get the 'US benefit' and have the current pressure on Islamabad eased.
One theory doing the rounds in Washington is that if India falls prey to Islamabad's trick, it would overshadow the Mumbai terror attack and because the world would be anxious at the prospect of two nuclear powers going to war, the Daily Times reported.
Currently, the US has expressed its surprise over Pakistan's troop mobilisation on its eastern border, as it has seen little hint of aggression from the Indian army.
Even during the last week, the US had assured Pakistan that India was not likely to launch a war. The US has also urged Islamabad to dismantle the cross-border terrorism mechanism.
Pakistan is yet to decide a strategy besides constantly asking for the 'evidence' in the Mumbai attacks.
Earlier, Pakistan's Ambassador Husain Haqqani to the US had said, "Pakistan does not seek war, but we need to be vigilant against threats of war emanating from the other side of our eastern border."
He also stated that both the countries should refrain from the blame game and unite against terrorism, which is a common menace for the both the nations.
Hussain Haqqani said that the democratic countries do not fight and he hoped that joint efforts would be made in the war against terrorism. (ANI)
