Pune, Nov 29 (ANI): Chief of Army Staff General Deepak Kapoor on Sunday said that Pakistan should have total control over its nuclear weapons and is important to ensure that the weapons do not fall in wrong hands.

Addressing the media on the sidelines of the 117th Passing Out parade of National Defence Academy (NDA) in Pune, General Kapoor said that the Pakistan Prime Minister Yusouf Raza Gilani, who has been reportedly handed over the nuclear button by the National Command Authority in Pakistan, should have total control over the weapons.

"Having the nuclear button in hand is not an issue. Most important thing is that whatever nuclear weapons they have, they should have complete control over them. We are a bit apprehensive that these weapons do not fall into wrong hands," General Kapoor said.

He also said that attempts of infiltration along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir are likely to increase to disrupt the peace in the State.

"Infiltration in India increased in the last two to three months, as Kashmir's condition has become quite stable and peaceful in the past one to two years. Elections were conducted peacefully and a large number of people participated in it. Some people didn't like it, so before the winters, more number of infiltrators will try to enter the Indian borders, so that they can resume their terror activities," General Kapoor added.

On the development of infrastructure by China in Tibet, he said, "It is necessary that we also develop infrastructure on our side of the border."

General Kapoor also added that India has good relations with China and the two countries would soon discuss the border disputes, if everything goes as per plan.

"There is nothing to get worried about," he said. (ANI)
