India is prepared to deal with any threat to countrys security: Manmohan

Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh on Wednesday said that the country is prepared to deal with any threat to its security.

New Delhi, May 23 : Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh on Wednesday said that the country is prepared to deal with any threat to its security.

Speaking at a book releasing ceremony here today, Dr. Singh said, "There should be no doubt in anyone's mind that we are prepared and determined to deal with any threat to our national security in the appropriate manner."

"Our armed forces are always ready to deal with any such challenge. Equally, we have the wisdom and the courage to say that the only lasting solution to any political or bilateral dispute is one that is negotiated through dialogue and discussion, and is arrived at honourably and to the satisfaction of all," Dr. Singh added.

Dr. Singh, released a book titled "1965 War - Inside Story" written by R.D.Pradhan, that has been based on the diaries written by former Finance Minister Y.B. Chavan.

"What Pradhan's book shows is that it is not just in normal and peace-time that the civil-military relationship is normal and well-oiled, but even during times of national crisis and war," Dr. Singh said, adding that in spite our country being a young nation at the time of 1962, 1965, 1972 wars, such external threats did not upset the balance in the civil-military relationship.

"If this (upsetting of balance between civil-military relations) did not happen it was because of the wisdom of our national leadership and the maturity and patriotism of our military leaders. They worked together and stood as one, and the fundamental basis of our democratic and Republican Constitution was never questioned," he added.
