US Assistant Secretary of State Richard Boucher has said on Wednesday that US will send additional civilian troops to Pakistan and Afghanistan following the new US strategy for Af-Pak to step up help for two neighboring countries in their combat against terrorism. But he vowed closely monitoring of aid this time for assurance of its proper usage. He said this in an interview with a British television channel. Boucher said these additional civilian troops will assist governments to launch development projects in the remote areas in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Projects like agricultural development, economic growth, energy and power generations will be established following US aid, he maintained. To a question, Boucher said, President Obama wishes to back up Pakistan and its people against the menace of terrorism but the US aid in this context will not go unchecked this time as US especial representative Richard Holbrooke will make sure the aid money be properly reached to deserving people.
