She said US is also serious to help Pakistan to meet its security needs and especially mentioned provision of F-16 aircraft, other military equipments and training to Pakistan Military to face the menace of terrorism.
She said, “US wants to see the region as stable and peaceful.” Appreciating the operation of Pakistan Army in Swat, Malakand, South Waziristan and other areas, she said, it has proved very helpful for the international forces fighting in Afghanistan.
Replying to a question about disbursement of funds under Coalition Support Fund to Pakistan, she said, it has been linked with the resolution of the visa issue to the US auditors.
She however said US has already been providing assistance to Pakistan and financial assistance has also been increased to meet the requirements of Pakistan Army in its fight against terrorism.
Responding to misunderstanding between the two countries, the Under Secretary of Defence for Policy said, this misunderstanding is on both sides.
