SRINAGAR (Agencies) - India said Tuesday its peace process with Pakistan had been put on hold in the wake of last month's attacks on Mumbai, but asserted it was not preparing for war. The Indian government said the future of relations between the two nuclear-armed South Asian rivals depended on how Pakistan responded to demands for action against the alleged plotters of the attacks. "I do admit there is a pause in the composite dialogue process because of the attacks on Mumbai," Indian External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee told reporters in Srinagar, the main city in Kashmir. With pressure mounting on Pakistan to act against the sources responsible for the Mumbai attacks, the Minister said India expected Pakistan to fulfil its commitments given first by former president Pervez Musharraf and now by President Asif Ali Zardari. "What we expect, and what we have pointed out to (Pakistani counterpart) Shah Mahmood Qureshi, is that Pakistan should fulfil its commitment of not allowing its territory for terrorist attacks against India." "Words must be followed up with action," Mukherjee added, calling for militant "infrastructure" in Pakistan to be dismantled. "We expect that good sense will prevail and we expect that the assurances that are coming (from Pakistan) will translate into action", he said, asking, "What's the difficulty of handing over him (Masood Azhar) to us? "Because assurances are coming from established leadership of that country, we expect conducive atmosphere will prevail to act on the promises made," Mukherjee said responding to questions. "Mumbai attacks have nothing to do with Indo-Pak relations over Kashmir issue. Pakistan must follow up on the evidence that has been given on terror camps," he said. Asked if the Mumbai terror would affect Indo-Pak relations vis-a-vis the Kashmir issue, the Indian External Affairs Minister categorically stated that the attacks had nothing to do with the bilateral relationship on matters relating to the border state. "New government in the state will carry forward the internal dialogue on Kashmir," he said. "It is not a Kashmir issue. It is not merely an issue between Pakistan and India. It is about global war against terrorism," Mukherjee said, referring to the 60-hour-long siege of Mumbai landmarks beginning November 26 that claimed 183 lives. "We should not look at the issue through the prism of Indo-Pak relations or the prism of Kashmir," he said. Meanwhile, talking to reporters in New Delhi, despite the latest diplomatic freeze, India's Defence Minister said his country was not readying for war against its neighbour but stressed that the neighbouring country would have to take action against what he called terrorists there for the relations to improve. "We are not planning any military action but at the same time unless Pakistan takes actions against those terrorists who are operating from their soil against India and also against all those who are behind the Mumbai terrorist attack, things will not be normal," Defence Minister A K Antony said. On the issue of troop deployment along the Indo-Pak border, Antony said the situation there was "normal" and armed forces were "always ready". "Everything is normal because our forces are always ready," the Minister said. The Indian Minister denied that India was planning to call off the more than five-year-old ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC). "Nothing like that," he stated when asked if India had any plans to call off the ceasefire with Pakistan. Refusing to divulge India's course of action in the present scenario, Antony demanded sincere action by Pakistan against "terrorists". "I cannot say what course of action we will take but unless Pakistan shows sincerity in whatever they are saying through their actions, one thing is very sure that there is no question of things as usual," he said.
