Munter draws up another 'to-do list' for 'problem ally' Pak against terror
Washington, July 11 (ANI): Barely a week after Pakistan reopened its NATO supply routes, U.S. Ambassador Cameron Munter has drawn up another "to-do list" for Pakistan.
According to Munter, Pakistan will have to "do more" to counter terrorism if it wants U.S. financial assistance to resume, reports The Express Tribune.
"Pakistan should not become the problem ... it should help resolve the problem," Munter said, adding that Pakistan should cooperate with the Afghan authorities and fight terrorists in the country.
Munter also sought to downplay the reopening of NATO supply routes.
"It was a problem for Pakistan. It (the decision to block the NATO supply routes) had alienated 50 allies in the 'war against terrorism' - a war that Pakistan's military is also fighting. Now the reopening of the supply routes will help us fight this war collectively," he said.
Pakistan unblocked the NATO supply routes earlier this month after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton offered a 'near-apology' over the November 26, 2010 NATO air raid along the Afghan border that killed two dozen troops.
Referring to what the U.S. calls terrorist safe havens in tribal regions, Munter said those challenging the writ of the state are terrorists.
"The civil and military leadership of Pakistan should defeat such terrorists. And we want to help them," he added. (ANI)
