Pakistan very important for a stable world - President Bush

posted on 27/09/2001: 1379 views


Washington (WAM) President George Bush said a stable Pakistan is very important for a stable world. 'After all, Pakistan has nuclear weapons, and we want stability in countries that may have nuclear weapons,' the Associated Press of Pakitan, APP, quoted President Bush as saying. President Bush was referring to an assistance package of 40 million US dollars announced by the visiting Japanese Prime Minister in favour of Pakistan. He said it was a very important contribution. The President made the remarks during a White House ceremony welcoming the Japanese prime minister Junichiro Koizumi.



Bush explained why he thought it was important. 'Remember, this war will be fought on a variety of fronts. It is not like wars that we're used to. There's very little that's conventional about it. It is different. And so, for example, the sharing of information is vital to find and root out terrorism. It is vital that we have a cooperative relationship. It is vital that if we hear anything that may affect the security of Japan, that we are forthcoming with that information. And vice-versa. And so the resources -- again, you -- the tendency is to think in terms of a conventional war, where people might put money in to support a military operation. That is not the kind of war we are talking about now. And so resources will be deployed in different ways -- intelligence-gathering, diplomacy, humanitarian aid, as well as cutting off resources. And one effective tool in getting these people is to cut off their money. And yesterday I made an announcement here about how we intend to do so'.
