    New Delhi, May 14 (ANI): The Ministry of Defence on Monday rubbished Pakistan media reports, which said that the 'Indian Government may move troops to peace time locations'.

    "The report published in Express Tribune, Islamabad edition, dated 14 May 2012, that "India may move troops to peace time locations" is completely incorrect and without any basis. There are no such plans," said a Defence Ministry release.

    Media reports earlier said that the Indian Government is likely to pull back troops from what they call 'wartime positions' to which the troops were moved at the working boundary with Pakistan after the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks.

    The decision to withdraw troops is among the first substantial overture since India and Pakistan resumed peace talks following the terror strike in 2008 which killed more than 160 people, including foreigners, reports The Express Tribune.

    The Siachen leak, the leak that India is withdrawing its troops and the claims that MMS is going to visit later this year all could be coincidence. But interestingly all have

    Or it could be a move to show that India is backtracking on negotiations and talks

    Talk of troop reduction is nonsense with Chinese.In PoK.
