US should continue providing financial aid to Pakistan: Clinton

Washington, Sat, 05 Nov 2011 ANI

Washington, Nov 5 (ANI): US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said that the US should continue providing financial assistance to Pakistan, and warned that disengaging at this stage would undermine America's national security interests.


Secretary Clinton's message to Congress accompanies a status report on Pakistan and Afghanistan from the State Department, which also strongly endorses America's continued engagement with both countries.


"In Pakistan, it means leveraging the resources provided by the landmark Kerry Lugar-Berman legislation to address major economic challenges that threaten Pakistan's stability," The Dawn quoted Clinton, as saying.


"Our civilian efforts were never designed to solve all of Afghanistan's development challenges or to completely turn around Pakistan's economy. But they do aim to give Afghans and Pakistanis a stake in their countries' futures and undercut the appeal of insurgency," she added.


Clinton also reminded US lawmakers that this strategy was rooted in a lesson "we have learned over and over again, lasting stability and security go hand in hand with economic opportunity". (ANI)
