Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani described the Indian Army chief's comments about the possibility of a limited war under a nuclear overhang as "irresponsible" and said "conflicts" between Pakistan and India could only be resolved through dialogue.
Gilani made the remarks while interacting with the media before embarking on a four-day official visit to Germany and Britain. He was responding to a question about Indian Army chief General Deepak Kapoor's recent comment that "a limited war under a nuclear overhang is still very much a reality in the Indian subcontinent".
"Conflicts between Pakistan and India can only be resolved through dialogue and even India is aware of this," he said. In response to another question, he said Pakistan had rendered more sacrifices than other countries in the war on terror.
Gilani described Germany as a key economic partner of Pakistan and said his visit will help boost ties between the two countries. The premier will exchange views on bilateral ties and global and regional matters with the top leadership of Germany and Britain.
