Jammu: A war between India and China will suit the United States as it will boost its weapon sales, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said on Tuesday.

"It (war) suits US because it will sell more weapons. But, it does not suit us and China.

"India and China have good relations. We hope it will further improve," Omar told reporters here.

The Chief Minister's response came after reporters asked his opinion on a statement of a US think tank and strategist that there is possibility of a war between India and China.

"Leave it (US's think tank's opinion of war) to India and China," Omar said and called for playing down of stray incidents between the two countries.

"There is always some sort of tension among neighbours.

Whatever stray incidents do take place, there is no need to present them by making a mountain out of a molehill," he said.

The endeavor of both the nations should be to further strengthen and improve the relations, the Chief Minister said.
