New Delhi, March 29 (ANI): India is as concerned with the worsening security situation inside Pakistan as it is with the continuing infiltration in Jammu and Kashmir, it has been brought out in the Annual Report of The Ministry of Defence for the year 2009 - 10, released here on Monday.
"The increasing incidents of terrorism within Pakistan targeting, inter alia, the security establishment and senior military personnel, and the rising tide of extremism underlined the serious threat to Pakistan itself and to the region", says the report, noting that "the Pakistani Government made some progress in tackling jihadi insurgency in Swat and the adjacent districts and also in south Waziristan".
Expressing concern over infiltration across the Line of Control (LoC) and existence of terrorists camps across the Indo-Pak border, India has said that Pakistan should undertake effective steps to address India's concern on terrorism being perpetrated from the territory under Pakistan control
"The continued infiltrations across the LoC and the existence of terrorist camps across the India-Pak border, however, demonstrate the continuing ambivalence of Pakistan in its actions against terrorist organisations. India has exercised exemplary restraint in the face of gravest provocation. Pakistan needs to take effective steps to address India's concern on terrorism directed against it from the territory under Pakistan control. India has never shut the door for dialogue with Pakistan, and is of the view that meaningful dialogue with Pakistan is possible only in an environment free of terror or threat of terror. This calls for Pakistan to take effective measures to dismantle the infrastructure of terrorism on its soil which is directed against India," the annual report states. (ANI)
