Islamabad, Mar.3 (ANI): The Pakistan political leadership maybe calling for 'peace talks' with India, but the country's military continues to spread propaganda by dropping pamphlets in North Waziristan that link the Taliban with India's external intelligence agency, the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW).

The pamphlets give a detailed account of the Taliban-RAW link and between Israeli intelligence outfit Mossad and Indian consulates in Afghanistan.

The pamphlets are aimed at arousing public sentiment in the tribal region.

"Establishing Indian and Israeli connections has always worked among tribal people, as they perceive the two countries more "anti-Islamic" than other countries," The Daily Times quoted a tribal affairs expert, as saying.

The pamphlets also highlight the importance of the military and called upon the tribal people of South and North Waziristan to support the government.

Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has reiterated that dialogue is the only way forward for resolving all outstanding issues between Pakistan and India.

In an interview to a private television channel, Gilani said: "We raise our hopes and then disappoint ourselves. Talks are the only way forward."

Responding to a question on the Indian Air Force's (IAF) show of strength in Pokhran, Rajasthan, Gilani said: "We are not worried by such things."

He also said that he was hopeful about a meaningful meeting with his Indian counterpart, Dr. Manmohan Singh in Bhutan in May.

To a question about Dr. Singh's visit to Saudi Arabia, Gilani described it as a 'good development' that would not have an impact on Islamabad-Riyadh ties. (ANI)
