SKARDU, Pakistan (AP) -- Pakistan's army chief says his country is ready for talks with India over resolving a dispute over a Himalayan glacier.
Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani's comments could signal a softening of the army's position toward a country with which Pakistan has fought three wars.
He says the dispute over the Siachen Glacier "should be resolved" and "how it is resolved the two countries have to talk about."
Kayani was speaking Wednesday in a rare question and answer session with the media after visiting the site of an avalanche near the glacier that has buried more than 125 Pakistani soldiers.
