India wants terror camps in Pakistan destroyed

New Delhi: India on Tuesday asked Pakistan to
destroy the 42 terror camps operational there, saying that a
resurgent Taliban could be a "security threat" to the country
after US forces pull out from Afghanistan.
"There are 42 terror camps which are still operational. We
want all of them to be destroyed," Defence Minister A K Antony
told reporters on the sidelines of the Coast Guard Commanders`
Conference here when asked about India`s concerns over the
existing terror camps in Pakistan.

In the recent past, reports have suggested that a large
number of terrorists are waiting on the other side of the Line
of Control (LoC) to infiltrate into Jammu and Kashmir.

To a query on the impact of the pullout by the US forces
from Afghanistan in the next couple of years, he said, a
resurgent Taliban can be a "security concern for us" after
western forces leave the war-torn country.
American troops are scheduled to leave Afghanistan by
2014 and are engaged in the process of building capabilities
of the Afghan National Army to enable it to handle security on
its own.
