Pak was ready to use N-arms

Karachi, December 30
Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf said today that he had been prepared to use nuclear weapons if India crossed into its territory earlier this year when tensions were at a peak.

I personally conveyed messages to (Indian) Prime Minister Vajpayee through every international leader who came to Pakistan that if Indian troops moved a single step across the international border or the Line of Control, they should not expect a conventional war from Pakistan, he told Pakistani air force veterans.
