  • Union Defence Minister A.K. Antony told reporters in New Delhi on June 25 that though infiltration from Pakistan had declined in the recent past, the threat from terrorists in J and K was “real” and there was no question of lowering the guard of the security forces. He added that Pakistan has been unable to check terrorist attacks originating from its soil1.

    Welcoming the resumption of talks between India and Pakistan, J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on June 27 stated that he was in favour of resumption of dialogue between the central government and separatists as dialogue “is the only platform to address issues and find out amicable solution to the problems." He was addressing a public meeting at Arizal in Budgam district2.
