India-US defence pact not against Pakistan: Bush
US President George Bush Thursday assured his Pakistan counterpart Pervez Musharraf that the US-India defence pact was not directed against Islamabad and that Washington will not allow the balance of power in South Asia to be disturbed.

The assurance came in a 30-minute telephonic talk between the two leaders Thursday. They exchanged views on various matters, including peace and security in the region and strengthening and sustaining cooperation in the war against terror.

Confirming the conversation, Information Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmad said both leaders exchanged views on regional and global issues, reports Online news agency.

Bush reportedly appreciated the performance of Pakistani security agencies in capturing Hashim Qadeer, a main accused in journalist Daniel Pearl's murder.

Musharraf has taken bold decisions for eradicating terrorism and extremism, said Bush.

He said: "We have held out assurances to President Musharraf that the US is fully alive to Pakistan's defence and security requirements and will fulfil them."

Bush said the US will continue to support both Pakistan and India for peace in the region and resolving the Kashmir issue.

Musharraf reiterated that Pakistan was determined to stamp out terrorism and extremism in all its forms.
