US cites continued counter-terrorism support amid House move on Pakistan aid PDF Print E-mail
WASHINGTON, July 20 (APP): The United States continues counterterrorism cooperation with Pakistan, the State Department said but had no specific comment on a House of Representatives measure proposing $ 650 million cut in aid for the country in the next fiscal year. Spokesman Patrick Ventrell said the Administration continues to consult Congress but had no particular comment on the ongoing legislative process. “We continue to obviously support our Pakistani counterparts in key areas like counterterrorism,” he said. The House passed a legislation, proposing a cut down in security aid for Pakistan by $ 650 million. The measure will have to be passed by Senate for it to become effective.

The new US fiscal year 2013, starts from October 1, 2012.
Islamabad’s ambassador in Washington Sherry Rehman and her colleagues, including Pakistan’s lobbyists, were engaged with the Hill late into the evening when the voting went on.

The relations between the two countries have showed signs of some improvement after the American public apology over Salala airstrikes and Pakistan’s subsequent reopening of key supply routes into landlocked Afghanistan, where the US-led forces are now working toward security transition and drawdown of combat troops by 2014.
