India has no intention of complicating Afghan operations: PM

T V Parasuram in Washington

Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee says India has no intention of complicating the current operations in Afghanistan, but has a legitimate right to take whatever action it can to thwart and respond to Pakistan's cross-border terrorism.

"We have already conveyed to the United States that we have no intention of complicating the current agenda and the operations in Afghanistan. We do, however, have a legitimate right to take whatever action we can in our country to thwart and respond to terrorism," Vajpayee told Washington Post.

"Restraint, like dialogue, has to be a two-way process," Vajpayee said in response to written questions from the Washington Post.

He said the war against terrorism would have to be fought on a global scale, against terrorist groups everywhere.

Safe havens offered by some countries with shelter, resources, training camps and arms have helped terrorist groups to build up a worldwide web of terror networks, with its hub in 'our' western neighbourhood, the prime minister said.
