NEW DELHI (APP) Indian Army Chief General Deepak Kapoor said on Monday the possibility of a limited war 'under a nuclear overhang' is still very much a reality in South Asia. South Asia along with West Asia has emerged as one of the epicentres of conflict and instability, he said and added the situation would further worsen since there was neither any political or diplomatic unity nor any common ground to build a consensus to fight this new war, General Kapoor said at a seminar on Changing Nature of Conflict: Trends and Responses. Territorial disputes, provocation by proxy wars, religious fundamentalism, radical extremism, ethnic tensions and socio-economic disparities are the hallmark of South Asia, he said. Gen Kapoor said sub-conventional conflicts may force nations to undertake interventions on purely humanitarian grounds if the diaspora is under threat, sovereignty of nations being questioned such as attacks on missions abroad and national assets and foreign soil being used constantly for attack by state and non-state actors. Speaking on the occasion, Indian Defence Minister AK Antony said the threat of nuclear weapons falling into wrong hands was an area of serious concern and its consequences would be unimaginable. Meanwhile, Indias Eastern Command Chief Air Marshal SK Bhan said in Shillong on Monday induction of new aircraft and upgradation of Advanced Landing Grounds had nothing to do with China. India has no intention of going to war with any country. But if the thrust is on us, we will respond, he said while responding to a question in a press conference. He said the Eastern Command would be modernised by 2015, which would reduce dependence on the western sector.
