Pak Army Has Derailed Talks Many Times: Army Chief

Army chief General Dalbir Singh Wednesday said the Pakistan Army has derailed talks between the two nations “many times in the past”.
Declining to comment on Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar’s statement that those who inflict pain should “receive pain” and if the Army had the capability to carry out a cross-border strike as was done in Myanmar last year, Singh said the “Army possesses capability of undertaking any task” assigned to it by the government.
He said while Pakistan had closed down many terrorist training camps on its side of the border due to “international pressure”, 17 of 42 camps were still active.
Speaking to reporters in New Delhi ahead of Army Day, he rejected claims that there was lack of coordination among agencies involved in counter-terror operations in Pathankot.
