NEW DELHI: Indian Air Force chief Air Chief Marshal Pradeep Vasant Naik said on Wednesday that the killing of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden has redefined the complex relationship between India and Pakistan, according to the Indian news agency ANI.

Addressing a seminar on national security reforms here, he said the death of Bin Laden has put Pakistan in “an uncomfortable position as the country is now answerable to its neighbours and allies, including the US.

“Now, we are in the post-Osama era with allegations, counter-allegations. They’ll continue for some time till some clarity emerges. The future of the relations which are already complex, is now getting redefined,” he said.
