Pak 'not willing' to prevent infiltration in J&K: Antony

October 07, 2009 15:25 IST
Union Defence Minister A K Antony on Wednesday accused Pakistan of 'not willing' to act against terrorists infiltrating into Jammu and Kashmir from its side of the border, even after the Mumbai attacks last November.

"The main thing is, even after 26/11, Pakistan is not willing to take strong action against these infiltrators," Antony told mediapersons in New Delhi on the sidelines of Defence Accounts Department headquarters building inauguration.

Noting that all these terrorist camps were near to their army formation, he said if they are sincere they can control it.

"By and large, they are always trying to push maximum number of people into Jammu and Kashmir," he said to a query on reports of a large number of ex-Taliban members waiting to infiltrate from across the border with Pakistan.

Exuding confidence, Antony said Indian armed forces were always ready to prevent infiltration and were maintaining their guard. "Our armed forces are always taking care...are always on guard. I am sure that our armed forces will be able to prevent it to maximum extent. So, I do not expect a large scale infiltration," he added.
