New Delhi, May 12 (ANI): Defence Minister A K Antony on Wednesday said Pakistan's militant infrastructure is still a matter of concern for India.

Reacting to a query about the resumption of talks between India and Pakistan at a time when there is an increase in infiltration attempts across the Line of Control, Antony said such attempts by militants are a matter of concern.

"Talks will continue, but at the same time we are very much concerned about the existence of more than 40 terrorist camps in Pakistan. And, our view is that Pakistan must take sincere and strong steps to dismantle these terrorist outfits," said Antony after inaugurating the Controllers' Conference of the Defence Accounts Department.

Speaking about the China-India relations, the Defence Minister said that the bilateral relations between the two countries are improving, in spite of the border issue.

"Military relations are improving. We had joint exercise with the Chinese army. Again, we will have joint exercise with them. And this year, our Defence Secretary Pradeep Kumar had gone there for discussions," said Antony.

"So, on the whole, the relations are improving, even though that border dispute is still there. On the whole, our relation with China is comparatively better. Our border is peaceful," he added. (ANI)
