Islamabad, May 10: Asif Ali Zardari, the Pakistani President taking United States line said that India is not a threat to Pakistan and it is facing danger from the 'terrorists inside the nation'.

"Well, I am already on record. I have never considered India a threat," Zardari said in an interview on the PBS news channel's popular show "Newshour With Jim Lehrer" on Saturday.

"I have always considered India a neighbour, which we want to improve our relationship with. We have had some cold times and we have had some hard times with them. We have gone to war thrice, but democracies are always trying to improve relationships," Zardari said while responding to a question about "which being the greatest threat to Pakistan? India, or the militants."

When asked about moving troops from Indian border to the NWFP areas to fight terrorists, Zardari said, "Pakistan has already done so."
