Is Kashmir major cause of tension between India and Pakistan? Pak Army says 'Yes'

Berlin: The Pakistan Army`s media wing chief on Wednesday said that Kashmir is the major cause of causing friction between two neighbouring countries India and Pakistan and that India poses a threat to Pakistan.

In an interview with Deutsche Welle Urdu yesterday,  Lt.Gen. Asim Bajwa, the director-General of Inter-Services Public Relations said the major cause of tension between India and Pakistan is the long-standing issue of Kashmir and that India poses a threat to Pakistan.

The Lt. General said that the developments were being made on diplomatic and political forums to engage India.

"But as a military spokesperson, I would like to say that India poses a threat to Pakistan and so our entire defence mechanism in India-specific," Bajwa said.

The army`s spokesperson said if only India is inducted in the Nuclear Suppliers Group, it will be a cause of "disturbance of the strategic stability in the region, besides being a step towards discrimination." 

Pakistan has steadfastly opposed India`s membership of the NSG, and has sought to become a member itself. 

In a rare interview, Bajwa added, "The world had abandoned Pakistan to handle and face the terrorists in the region alone, and Pakistan has completed the task."
