NEW DELHI, Feb 27: India will not vacate the Siachen glaciers as Pakistan cannot be trusted and it may occupy the strategic location once it is vacated, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar said on Friday.
India occupies the highest point in Siachen glaciers, the Saltoro Ridge which is located at 23,000 feet, he said.
"If we vacate the position, the enemy can occupy the position and they would have the strategic advantage. Then we would have to lose many more lives. We know the experience of 1984 (Siachen conflict).(Agencies)
