Pak doesn't want peace with India: Ghulam Nabi Azad
Posted on: 04:26 AM IST Jan 12, 2013
New Delhi Pakistan doesn't want a peaceful relationship with India and the violation of the ceasefire across the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir is a matter of concern, Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said on Friday.
"The Indian government has made all efforts to maintain good relations with Pakistan, but Pakistan doesn't want to have good relations. The ceasefire violation is a cause for concern," Azad told reporters.
"Pakistan resorts to shelling across the border to divert attention from its internal problem," the Congress leader added.
The minister's statement came three days after Pakistani troops killed and beheaded two Indian soldiers in Poonch district in Jammu and Kashmir after breaching the LoC and crossing over to Indian territory.
The beheading of the soldiers and one of the heads being taken away by Pakistani soldiers has caused outrage in India.
