Pakistan to decide NWA offensive: Olson

United States Ambassador to Pakistan Richard Olson said on Thursday that the decision to conduct an operation in the North Waziristan Agency (NWA) was Pakistan’s internal matter. Speaking at a private TV programme, Olson said the US would act if it receives actionable evidence against Pakistani Taliban leader Fazlullah allegedly based in Afghanistan. “We share the concern of the government of Pakistan. The country has made more sacrifices in the war against extremism than any other country,” Olson said. When asked if the US was providing secret money to the Pakistani media, Olson replied: “We don’t provide money to the Pakistani media. We have on occasion paid for public service announcements in a transparent manner.”
