Musharraf says India's
actions 'very arrogant'

Pakistan on Saturday deplored the Indian decision to call back its high commissioner in Islamabad and said that the present tensions could be defused only through diplomatic contacts.

"The present tension in the relations between India and Pakistan can be defused only if contacts are maintained. We deplore the Indian decision," Pakistan's Information Secretary, Syed Anawar Mehmood, said.

Speaking to reporters in Xian, China, Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf termed India's decision as "very arrogant."

"We regret the very arrogant and knee-jerk response of the Indian government," Musharraf said.

Asked whether Pakistan would retaliate, he said: "No."

Referring to Indian decision of terminating train and bus services between the two countries, he said it would create difficulties for the low-income people who use these facilities.
