NEW YORK - According to New York Times, with Pakistan economy in a bad shape, the Pakistan Army is looking for better ties with India so that they can get a breather.

Bajwa and his Indian Army counterpart general Bipin Rawat goes back a long time to their service for peacekeeping forces in Congo.
According to Pakistan Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry, " Till the Indian elections, there cannot be an immediate betterment in bilateral relations".
