ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

America's pressure on to end support to terrorists if it wants aid should not lead into expecting that would take over New Delhi's work when it comes to dealing with Pakistan, Chief of Army Staff Bipin said on Friday.

Acknowledging the suspension of aid to by the US, averred it was premature to talk how much of an impact it would have on Pakistan, and the extended neighbourhood.

"It would be too premature to start saying that everything is going to be hunky-dory. Let's not expect US to do what we are expected to do," said at a press conference here.

Speaking about India's combative action against infiltration in Jammu and Kashmir, Gneral Rawat informed that Cavalry Fighting Vehicles (CFV) have been increased to destroy posts that support infiltration, and added that the India's war casualties are lesser that Pakistan's.

"The casualties which Pakistan has suffered are three to four times more than we did. Pakistan is sending messages regularly to return to ceasefire. We are ready, but we will continue till we see decrease in ceasefire violation," he added.

Last week, the announced suspension of aid to Pakistan, given that it was not taking "necessary steps" to curb terrorism.

said the embargo would remain in place until Pakistan takes action against the Afghan and the Haqqani network.

The announcement came after US made a scathing remark against Pakistan and accused it of lying and deceiving while receiving billions in aid.
