Army chief backs Antony on J&K ceasefire
Onkar Singh in New Delhi | September 20, 2007 16:15 IST
Speaking to rediff.com in New Delhi, General Singh said it will not be prudent for him to say anything more when the Defence minister had already made a statement.
When asked about Lashkar-e-Tayiba chief Hafiz Mohammad Sayeed's statement calling for jihad against India to stop its growing influence, he said: "There is a need to counter terrorism. We must be prepared to meet the challenge from such forces."
Giving his assessment of the situation in Kashmir, General Singh complimented the army for bringing down the level of violence in the state.
