WikiLeaks: India says Pakistan "obsessed"

NEW DELHI (AP) — Officials in New Delhi told U.S. officials in comments made public in a leaked U.S. diplomatic cable that Pakistani officials are "hypnotically obsessed" with India's military.

Indian Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao told U.S. Sen. John Kerry that the Indo-Pakistani peace talks cannot move ahead until Islamabad does more to dismantle the Pakistan-based terrorist infrastructure that New Delhi says supports anti-Indian militants.

The talks have been on hold since 2008 terror attacks on Mumbai blamed on Pakistan-based militants.

Rao told Kerry during a February visit the senator made to India that the talks "can't just be switched on."

The cable, marked "confidential," was obtained by WikiLeaks and released Friday by the British newspaper The Guardian.
