Pakistan to get its share under Coalition Support Fund: US


Reimbursement to Pakistan under the Coalition Support Fund (CSF) will continue to be made as it has taken concrete steps to eliminate terrorists from its soil, US envoy for Pakistan and Afghanistan said on Monday.

In an interview with a US broadcaster, US Deputy Special Representative for Pakistan and Afghanistan Jonathan Carpenter lauded Pakistan’s campaign against terrorism. He said, “Pakistan has done a significant job in North Waziristan and Khyber Agency.

“It is a good omen that stability has been restored in these territories. Waziristan and Khyber Agency have become secure areas due to operation Zarb-e-Azb.”

Carpenter said that the US was not only taking keen interest in the implementation of the National Action Plan strategy but also wanted to lend help to Pakistan in this regard.

Answering a question, he said that payments under the CSF to Pakistan will continue during the current financial year.

“Pakistan has assured us that action is being taken against all militants groups. We think that it is a right way and we support it.”
