Pakistan moves military personnel, assets from Indian border to Afghan side

Washington, August 18(ANI): Pakistani officials do not feel any threat to their national security from India despite relocating a considerable number of military personnel and assets from its eastern border to the western side to fight al-Qaeda and Taliban militants.

This is the sense diplomats based in Washington got when defence attaches of various countries were given a briefing by the Pakistani embassy on the country's efforts in the war against terrorism, The Nation reports.

Pakistan's Ambassador to the United States, Hussain Haqqani, and the country's defence attache in Washington gave the briefing, during which the top Pakistani diplomats also sought international support for Islamabad's efforts in the war on terror, including material and financial assistance.

The Indian defence attache was not invited for the meeting, the report said.

In the meeting, the Pakistani diplomats are believed to have informed the defence attaches of a number of countries that seven to nine divisions had been deployed in the country's tribal areas. (ANI)
