lndia Continues Security Fence
India will keep building a security fence to prevent attacks by militants from Pakistani-administered Kashmir, the country’s top army officer says. General N C Vij said the Indian army had intercepted thousands of messages sent from militant bases on the Pakistani side. He said the activity indicated that the bases were still operating. Meanwhile gun battles in Indian-administered Kashmir have left several militants and Indian soldiers dead. The issue of Kashmir is expected to figure in talks in Islamabad later this month between Indian Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee and Pakistan’s President Pervez Musharraf. India has already built a section of the security fence, which will eventually stretch hundreds of kilometres.
I don’t know about you, but I wasn’t informed of any outrage by the “international” community regarding this fence. Were you?
