NEW DELHI (Agencies) - A day after Indian Defence Minister AK Antony said that the truce between Pakistan and Taliban has added to India's 'worries' over the security scenario in the region, Indian Army Vice Chief Lt-Gen Noble Thamburaj was of the view that it was not a 'direct threat' to India. "Taliban is an organisation, which generally has its influence in western Pakistan and Afghanistan and there is no known influence of Taliban inside India. So, there is no direct threat as of now," Thamburaj told reporters in New Delhi on Saturday. He said that if there was any threat in the future from Taliban, the Indian army was prepared to tackle it. "Whatever are the threats which may manifest itself in the future, Army is totally prepared for all different scopes of warfare," Thamburaj said. Antony had on Friday said the truce between Pakistan and Taliban has added to India's 'worries' over the security scenario in the region. He said that with the Pakistan Army under pressure on its western frontier, it was in a 'dilemma' over its troops deployed along Indian border after the Mumbai attacks. Thamburaj said the Pakistani troops on the Indian border were in a 'defensive kind of deployment' and the Army did not visualise any 'major problem' with their presence. Meanwhile, India will not attend a US-sponsored conference on the situation in Afghanistan and Pak-Afghan border areas to be held in Washington next week, although the United States has invited India to attend, reported the private Indo-Asian News Service Saturday. India prefers to wait and watch the situation before getting involved in the domestic affairs of Afghanistan, said the report, quoting official sources. The meeting is expected to be attended by the US special envoy for Pakistan and Afghanistan Richard Holbrooke and the foreign ministers of Pakistan and Afghanistan. India, which has pledged 1.2 billion US dollars of investment for reconstruction projects in Afghanistan, is opposed to the perspective of allowing the Taliban to be part of the future government in Afghanistan. Such a perspective could be raised at the meeting in Washington, according to the news agency's report.
