"[Indian Ministry of External Affairs] spokesman Vikas Swarup reacted sharply on Monday to President Obama's advise to India and Pakistan at the end of the recent Nuclear Security Summit. Obama wanted to 'see progress in Pakistan and India, that subcontinent, making sure that as they develop military doctrines, that they are not continually moving in the wrong direction.' 'Yes, we have seen those remarks,' Swarup said. 'There seems to be a lack of understanding of India's defence posture. Conventionally, India has never initiated military action against any neighbour. We also have a no-first use nuclear weapons policy,' he added." [editor's note: Swarup seems to have forgotten Junagadh. And Hyderabad. And Siachen. And so on - TLK] (04/05/16)
