Kannur, May 29: Breaking up of 42 terror camps in Pakistan is the only means to renew the relations between India and Pakistan, said Defence Minister, A K Antony, on Saturday, May 28.

Antony also said that India would not agree in anti-piracy operations despite of trying to make efforts for the safe release of the Indians held captivate by the pirates.

"The government would continue the dialogue with its neighbour. The scheduled resumption of talks between defence secretaries of both the countries in New Delhi on May 30 and 31 was to carry on the dialogue. But dismantling of the 42 terror camps in Pakistan was key to a permanent resolution of problems between the two countries," said Anthony adding that India was looking forward to have a dialogue with Pakistan.

Antony further said that India has over and over again brought to the notice of US, that a large number of the weapons provided to Pakistan to fight terror groups on its borders with Afghanistan were being misused against India.

"We are not satisfied with the responses of the US in this regard," Antony said.

The Minister also unveiled that the exchange programme (Defence) between India and Pakistan would begin soon again.

"We will do our best to protect and release the sailors held hostage by the pirates and the government of India is taking all efforts with the assistance of all agencies to ensure the safety of our sailors," said the Minister.
