India wants peace, but will firmly deal with threats: PM

Signalling no thaw in relations with Pakistan, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday said India wants peace with neighbours but incidents like the brutal killing of two soldiers on the LoC were simply unacceptable and the country would effectively deal with any threat.

Speaking at the governors’ conference here, the prime minister dwelled on an array of issues and said that the past year had seen improvement in improvement in internal security situation including that in Jammu and Kashmir, the northeast and in the Maoist-affected areas.

He said India was committed to working for good relations and peaceful existence with its neighbours but ‘are also firm in our resolve to deal effectively with any threat to our country’.

‘Incidents like the one that took place on the LoC last month are against the norms of civilised international behaviour and are simply unacceptable to us,’ he said.
