Complicated ties

Top Story

October 26, 2013

This refers to the news story, ‘US quietly decides to release $1.6 billion to Pakistan’ (October 20). It seems that both countries are once again coming closer to countering terrorism in this region.
The relationship between both countries has seen many ups and downs, but never been abandoned. One must sense that it is the US that has tried to revive Pakistan’s economy, started dozens of projects in Pakistan on energy, health and education etc. On the other hand, the US must acknowledge that it is Pakistan that has been and still is its greatest ally against terrorism. Therefore any distortion in the relationship can result in disastrous consequences for both countries. Since the US, along with other international security forces, is leaving Afghanistan in 2014, the assistance being provided for military hardware will ultimately help both countries achieve their targets and make the world safer.
