NEW DELHI (Agencies) - India on Thursday ruled out the possibility of any surgical strike on alleged terror camps inside Pakistan, but asserted that adequate measures would be taken to ensure its interests are protected. No, no, Indian Minister of State for Defence MM Pallam Raju, told reporters when asked about the possibility of surgical strikes on terror camps inside the neighbouring country. We will take adequate measures to see to it that our nation is safe, our citizens are safe, and our interests are safeguarded. While expressing hope that Pakistan will act against terror camps operating from its soil, Raju said India will also ensure that its interests are protected and the nation is secure. The first responsibility is towards ensuring adequate security towards which we are leaving no stone unturned. Beyond that whatever information we have about these camps, we have brought it to the notice of our neighbour and we hope they will take action on that, he said on the sidelines of a seminar at the Institute of Defence Studies and Analyses here. Across the borders, we are taking adequate safety measures and we are continuing to talk to that government. I am sure there will be results at the end of the day, he said. Talking to PTI in New York, Indian Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao warned that the Taliban is part of the very negative presence in Afghanistan, saying that India has asked the international community not to find quick solutions to the extremist problem and be prepared for a long haul. There are certain forces that spread terror. The Taliban is part of the very negative presence, Nirupama Rao, who is in the United States on a six-day visit, said. Rao, who had extensive discussions with US secretary of state Hillary Clinton and other senior officials of the Obama Administration on Afghanistan, also spoke against a distinction being made between a good Taliban and bad Taliban. India and the international community have to stay involved in Afghanistan in order to deal with this problem that has been created by these extremist groups in this country. The United States fully recognises that India has legitimate interests in Afghanistan. It appreciates the development work we do there... It appreciates that we are force of stability and moderation in our region. We are not scaling down in Afghanistan, she maintained.
