NEW DELHI — Pakistani officials are "hypnotically obsessed" with India's military, officials in New Delhi told US officials in comments made public in a leaked US diplomatic cable released Friday by Wikileaks.

The cable, released by the British newspaper The Guardian, says Indian Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao told US Sen. John Kerry earlier this year that Indo-Pakistani peace talks could not move ahead until Islamabad did more to dismantle the Pakistan-based terrorist infrastructure that New Delhi says supports anti-Indian militants.

The talks have been on hold since the 2008 terror attacks on Mumbai blamed on Pakistan-based militants.

The Pakistani military is "hypnotically obsessed" with India's military, Rao said in the cable, which was marked "confidential."
