US Senator John Kerry,Chairman of the powerful Senate Foreign Relations Committee,said that India and Pakistan are engaged in “old fashioned” confrontation.

Kerry,who recently visited India,Pakistan and Afghanistan is expected to play a key role in shaping the foreign policy of the new administration. He made these remarks during the Senate debate related to the confirmation of Hillary Clinton as the Secretary of State to the US President Barack Obama.

“India and Pakistan are still engaged in literally old-fashioned,mostly cold war… confrontation,” Kerry said. “In fact,both sides know that the concept of war would be absurd,” said the Massachusetts Senator.
