Pakistan to be given equipment to check terrorism: Olson

 
January 21, 2013

ISLAMABAD: US Ambassador to Pakistan Richard Olson Sunday said the US would extend all the necessary assistance and equipment to help Pakistani law enforcement agencies to check incidents of suicide attacks and bomb blasts.
He said the United States highly values its relations with Pakistan, adding that they acknowledge the sacrifices made by Pakistan during war on terrorism.The ambassador had meeting with Interior Minister Rehman Malik and exchanged views on bilateral relations and security situation, particularly in Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata).
He appreciated the arrangements made by the Ministry of Interior during the long march for the security of the participants. Olson also lauded interior minister’s services for taking special measures to ensure safety of ambassadors and diplomats.
The interior minister said Pakistan was doing its level best to improve law and order but it has its own limitations. He said due to resource constraint, the law enforcement agencies were handicapped. He welcomed the ambassador’s assurance for the equipment and hoped that this would help in nabbing the miscreants. The ambassador also pointed to the assistance for improvement of power situation and for the education sector in Pakistan.
