    Pakistan's army calls for India talks_ and _Kayani urges less spending on defence

    SKARDU, Pakistan — Pakistan's army chief says his country is ready for talks with India over resolving a dispute over a Himalayan glacier.

    Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani's comments could signal a softening of the army's position toward a country with which Pakistan has fought three wars.

    He says the dispute over the Siachen Glacier "should be resolved" and "how it is resolved the two countries have to talk about."

    Kayani was speaking Wednesday in a rare question and answer session with the media after visiting the site of an avalanche near the glacier that has buried more than 125 Pakistani soldiers.

    SKARDU: Pakistan’s powerful army chief Wednesday said he would like to see the country spend less on defence, arguing that national security depended on development as much as on protecting borders.
    Chief of the Army Staff, General Ashfaq Kayani, said “peaceful coexistence” with arch-rivals India was vital to both countries and the welfare of the people should be a priority.

    The nuclear-armed neighbours have fought several wars since independence in 1947 and
    both spend heavily on their military while millions
    of their people languish in poverty.
    “Peaceful coexistence between the two
    neighbours is very important so that everybody
    can concentrate on the well-being of the people,”
    he told reporters.
    The general was speaking at Skardu airport in
    northern Pakistan after visiting the remote Gayari
    army base in disputed Kashmir, which was hit by
    a massive avalanche on April 7.
    Rescuers are still searching for nearly 140 people
    buried by the mass of snow and rock at the
    camp, which lies around 4,000 metres (13,000
    feet) above sea level.
    Pakistan and India invest significant resources in
    maintaining a military presence on the Siachen
    Glacier — dubbed “the world’s highest
    battleground” — and the tragedy has sparked
    lively debate about the human and financial cost
    of defending an uninhabitable patch of snow and rock.
    Kayani said soldiers would do their duty come what may, but defending borders should not be the country’s sole priority.
    “We in the army understand very well that there
    should be a very good balance between defence
    and development. You cannot be spending on
    defence alone and forgetting about development,”
    he said.
    “Ultimately the security of a country is not only that you secure boundaries and borders but it is
    when people that live in the country feel happy,
    their needs are being met. Only in that case will a
    country be truly safe.” He said national security
    should be a comprehensive concept.
    “And therefore we would like to spend less on
    defence, definitely,” he said.
    “Any country should do the same — more focus should be on the welfare of the people.” Pakistan
    has spent more than half its history since
    independence under military rule and Kayani is widely regarded as the most powerful man in the country.
    He said the decades of enmity between India and
    Pakistan should be resolved through negotiation
    and stressed the urgency of halting the damage
    to the environment caused by troop deployment
    on the Siachen Glacier.
    “Ultimately it’s going to affect the River Indus
    adversely and we understand water is important
    and water management is very important,” he said.
    Kashmir has been the cause of two wars
    between India and Pakistan and the nuclear-
    armed rivals fought over Siachen in 1987, though
    guns on the glacier have largely fallen silent since
    a peace process began in 2004.

    Is this due to a public outcry in Pakistan against the loss of life and will that loss be forgotten before long?

    Very true, but that can't be said about the congress leadership of India.
    They are alwayse their to please and back-stab India with the help of and support of India's enemies.

    finally pakistan army cheif is realizing that his country is in deep trouble.
    economically its rotten
    socially its radicalized which is bringing more harm to it than good ( good by turning loyal to army and getting highly anti-Indian)
    and in overall manner gilgit balochistan and all its border with afghanistan is troubled badly where army and police are losing many men on weekly basis.

    its time to concentrate more on domestic issues and clean the nation of the insurgent groups, men on Indian border will strain army and increase the expenditure.
    the army is now thinking on fighting insurgent groups and then getting back to India when its internally stable like in 90s and 80s.

    fighting ttp and other insurgent groups require atleast half a decade and to do it efficiently and economically they need to think less of India and deploy lesser men on India border.

    the talks and other shit they are talking about, if there is a motive of buying time from pakistani side, will bring only 5 or atmost 10 years of peace, if they be able to finish off internal menace then they will be standing tall with greater economic strength and enhanced confidence and integrity.

    India at the moment, should go on increasing economic and political ties but militarily it should maintain its tough stand. 65 years of thirst for blood of eachother and wounds of 4 wars and numerous skirmishes cant be forgotten, atleast in 5-10 years.
    the readiness of India should be such that it can go back to hostile situation whenever pakistan changes it mind (shows its true color)

    Ok so India should spend less on defense because Pakistan has lost 150 soldiers and running low on money?

    How about Pakistan starts spending less on nukes??? Pakistan is spending a reported $2.5 Billion on nukes and has surpassed India in number of nukes which is a matter of concern and alarming for world peace.

    Pakistan expanding nuclear arsenal, should India be worried? : Pakistan News - India Today
