US terms Pakistan’s efforts for safer Afghanistan ‘commendable’
Briefing the media here, Deputy Spokesman of the US Department of State, Mark Toner said that the US praises Pakistan’s efforts in the Afghan peace process, acknowledging the fact that no other country in the world suffered damage due to terrorism more than what was inflicted to Pakistan.
He said that supporting Pakistan is in our interest and that it is key partner in the region for the achievement of a stable Afghanistan.
Toner went on to say that the military aid provided to Pakistan is meant for counter-terrorism measures.
He, however, did not confirm receiving a letter from Senator Bob Corker declining to provide Pakistan with F-16 fighter jets.
