No military moves on border: US

Published December 3, 2008

WASHINGTON, Dec 2: India and Pakistan have not changed their nuclear posture or made overt military moves since terror attacks in Mumbai despite heightened political tensions, a US military official said on Tuesday.

“Militarily, the temperature is pretty low right now,” said the official. He said Pakistan moved some aircraft and air defence units to the border after the Indians pointed a finger at Pakistan as the source of the attack.

But the Pakistanis have moved no ground forces, and “on the nuclear side nothing at all”, the official said.

“The Indians have showed great restraint, militarily. As a matter of fact, no change (in posture),” he said. —AFP
