ISLAMABAD The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), the military alliance of the western countries, is seeking to sign an agreement with Islamabad on secret information sharing, which is the part of plans to broaden its relations with Pakistan. The visiting NATO Deputy Assistant Secretary General, Robert Simmons stated this while talking reporters here on Thursday on conclusion of his three-day official visit. We also discussed the possibility of an agreement on the protection of classified information. It permits us to exchange classified information with the Pakistanis, he said. He said that the NATO was looking to broaden its ties with Pakistan at the highest political level and expand a training programme for Pakistani officers, civilians, police and counterterrorism officials. Answering a question, Simmons said that it was entirely up to Pakistan to set its strategy and the timings for military operation in the North Wazirsitan Agency. Overall we are satisfied and welcome the steps that Pakistan has taken against terrorist networks, Simmons said, adding that North Waziristan was the biggest concern but that NATO was satisfied with Pakistans military operations.
