US tipped India on Pak's N-movement during Kargil

india Updated: Jul 07, 2006 00:44 IST

India had full information about Pakistani nuclear warhead movements during the Kargil war and was tipped off about this by the then US National Security Advisor, former External Affairs Minister Jaswant Singh has said.

"We had full information about it (moving of nuclear warheads).. Even the National Security Advisor to the then US President has given this information to us in writing," Singh told a TV channel.

His comments came in the wake of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's claims in his biography that the Pakistani Army led by Gen Pervez Musharraf had moved nuclear warheads during the Kargil conflict.

Singh said he also mentioned about the Pakistani nuclear warhead movement in his own book due for publication later this month.

"Then entire mechanism of governance in Pakistan during the conflict were in a disarray during and after the Kargil conflict. And in the process, great many things were happening. Various limbs of the government in Pakistan were acting and they were accountable only to themselves," he said.
