Bangalore: External Affairs Minister SM
Krishna on Sunday said developments in Pakistan are of "deep
concern" from the point of stability in South Asia.

"Peace prevailing in Pakistan brings some kind of
stability in south Asia," he told reporters at the taluk
headquarters town of Sira in Tumkur district of Karnataka.

"In that background, the current situation is a matter of
deep concern," Krishna said.

But the minister expressed confidence of things getting
back to normal, adding Pakistan government was working towards
that.

Asked about the Karnataka High Court order that
investigation should continue into offences against him
relating to dereservation of forest area in mineral-rich
fragile zones during his tenure as chief minister, Krishna
said his advocates would take care of the case.
