‘Kashmir not excuse, act against militants’

world Updated: Apr 19, 2012 23:23 IST

Pakistan has kept the “best” of its forces on the “Kashmir border” instead of deploying them on its Afghan border, a top American senator has said, asserting that Islamabad cannot use Kashmir as an “excuse” to not act against terrorist safe havens.

“Kashmir has a significant effect in a lot of ways... including the stationing of troops in significant numbers on Kashmir border rather than on the Afghan border (which) in our view could be much more usefully employed,” Senator John McCain said.
