We want peace with India: Zardari

Washington, May 6 (ANI): Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari has said he is eager to start talks with India soon to establish peace between both the nations.

Zardari, who is in Washington to take part in a trilateral summit with his US and Afghanistan counterparts, said he was waiting for the Indian general elections to get over so that peace initiatives could be resumed, which was disrupted after the heightened tension in the wake of the Mumbai attacks.

"We have always wanted peace. We still want peace with India," Zardari told CNN.

Zardari also ruled out any possibility of war between both the arch rivals.

"Democracies have never gone to war. I'm waiting for the elections to be over so all this rhetoric is over and I can start a fresh dialogue with the Indian government," The Dawn quoted Zardari, as saying.

Zardari's comments comes days after the United States had asked Islamabad to realize that the real threat to Pakistan emanates internally and not from India.

The US President, in a press conference, recently had also said that Pakistan's military must overcome its 'obsession' with India and realize its 'biggest threat right now comes internally.' (ANI)
