NEW YORK - Pakistan would like the US to build its capacity by providing the necessary equipment and means to combat terrorists holed up in the Pak-Afghan border region, a Pakistani Embassy spokesman said on Friday. Responding to questions about the increasing unilateral US strikes inside Pak territory, he said such attacks were counter-productive. 'A better-equipped Pakistan would be able to deal with the insurgents on its own', he added.. The spokesman, who was briefing reporters at the end of President Asif Ali Zardari's visit here, said that the desired objectives in both bilateral and multilateral fields had been accomplished. 'It was a low-cost visit, with a very good yield', he stressed. The President arrived on Tuesday to lead the Pakistan delegation to the UN General Assembly's high level meeting on Culture of Peace. The two-day meeting ended Thursday night after unanimously adopting a declaration, sponsored by Pakistan and the Philippines, which rejected religious terrorism and killing of innocent civilians. Pakistan, he said, played a leading role in the interfaith conference and the President's speech, in which he outlined a five-point plan to address the root-causes of terrorism, had a positive impact. 'As a voice of the Muslim worl and a prominent member of the Organisation of Islamic Conference, Pakistan made a contribution in the success of the interfaith conference'. Apart from attending the interfaith dialogue, the President met various heads of states/govt attending the conference. He also participated in a tripartite summit involving King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia and Afghan President Hamid Karzai. The spokesman said during the deliberations on the situation in Afghanistan, the Afghan leader made it absolutely clear that he had full confidence in the govt of President Asif and that he no longer has any complaints. He said the relations between Pakistan and Afghanistan were now friendly and cordial, with the blessings of King Abdullah who is playing a key role in helping stabilise the situation in Afghanistan. On the bilateral front, the President made phone calls to some key US leaders and officials, including Senators John Kerry and Hillary Clinton, besides Madeline Albright, a former Secretary of State and President-elect Barak Obama's representative to the upcoming G-20 summit in Washington, and Christopher Van Holland, Chairman Democratic Congress Campaign Committee, he said. Asked whether the CIA chief Michael Hayden had met the President, as was being reported, the spokesman said he would not comment on intelligence matters. But he said there was good cooperation between Pakistan and the US on intelligence sharing and that contacts in this regard take place from time to time. Questioned about Hayden's statement that Osama bin Laden was in Pakistan, the spokesman said: 'we have no intelligence and if there is any actionable intelligence, the US should share it with us and we will act on it'. About US strikes inside Pakistani territory, he said the US should make available all means to deal with the terrorists so that Pakistan can itself take necessary action. Responding to questions, he said that Pakistan expected to have good relations with the incoming Obama administration, saying 'We have good friends in the new administration'. He cited Obama and Joseph Biden as friends of Pakistan as they have made efforts for the restoration of democracy in the country.
