Indian army chief General Bipin Rawat on Friday criticised Pakistan for not taking action against terrorists and for increasing terror in Jammu and Kashmir.

The army chief said that it did not seem that Pakistan wanted peace with India.

"We also want better relations but from actions taken by them, like increasing terror in Jammu and Kashmir, it doesn't seems like they want peace. If they take right initiatives against terrorists, we can have talks," General Rawat said.

The army chief was speaking at the "Hamesha Vijayee" exercise in Rajasthan's Jaisalmer.

The Indian Army and Air Force have been carrying out joint military drill in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan for the past three days.
