ISLAMABAD Terming the public support in war against terror as vitally important, Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has said that this support can only be kept intact if the international community, particularly the donor countries, fulfil their pledges and help the Government of Pakistan undertake the emergent measures to provide relief to the ordinary people and undertake infrastructure and social sector projects in the affected areas. The Prime Minister rued the fact that while the time was fast running out for his Governments rehabilitation and reconstruction efforts in the areas cleared from militants, the committed assistance at the Tokyo Donors Conference held more than a year ago was yet to be delivered by the donor countries. This delay had further accentuated the economic and energy crises in Pakistan and the extremist elements were taking advantage of that situation. The Prime Minister said this while talking to Richard Holbrooke, Special US Representative for Pakistan and Afghanistan, who called on him here at the PMs House on Saturday. The Prime Minister appreciated the fact that the US and Japanese Governments had taken the initiative to make demarches to the donor countries for delivering on their promised economic assistance to Pakistan. He also thanked the US for its intersession with the European Union member states to approve grant of GSP Plus facilities to Pakistan. He called on the US Government to continue using its influence with some of the European countries, which were still hesitant in facilitating Pakistans case for greater market access. He also requested for redoubling of US administrations efforts to ensure that ROZ legislation be passed by the Congress in the near future. The Prime Minister called upon the US to, in the meanwhile, positively consider Pakistans request for expansion of its tariff lines for Pakistans textile items, for providing immediate relief to Pakistan for increasing its exports and generating new job opportunities. The Prime Minister noted that during the economy cluster track meetings between the two countries earlier this week, Pakistan side had sought the help of US for restructuring its public sector entities and hoped that Pakistans request in that regard would be assigned priority by the US to lessen the pressure on Pakistans Budget deficit. The Prime Minister expressed his satisfaction over the successful Fourth Round of Pakistan-US Strategic Dialogue held in Washington in March and over the sectoral track meetings presently being held in Islamabad for preparation of Fifth Round of Strategic Dialogue scheduled in the third week of July. He stated that his Government was looking forward to Secretary of State Hilary Clintons visit to Pakistan in July and was hopeful that the next Round of Strategic Dialogue between the two countries would produce some tangible and concrete results. The Prime Minister termed it as gratifying that intelligence sharing between Pakistan and US had substantially increased in the recent past and both sides were fully cooperating in war against terror and for restoration of peace and stability in Afghanistan. The Prime Minister while dilating upon the forthcoming visits of Indian Home Minister (to attend SAARC Interior Ministers Conference in Islamabad), Indian Foreign Secretary and later on of Indian External Minister to Pakistan, reaffirmed Pakistans keen desire to have good neighbourly relations with India through peaceful resolution of all the outstanding issues between the two countries including the core issue of Kashmir as well as the water dispute. He underlined the fact that Pakistan had all along strived for restoration of composite dialogue with India in the larger interest of peace in this region and world at large. Ambassador Richard Holbrooke, in his response, noted with satisfaction that meetings of seven out of eleven tracks had already successfully been held while the remaining track meetings were scheduled to be held before July 10, to prepare grounds for the Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and Foreign Minister of Pakistan led Fifth Round of Strategic Dialogue on July 19. He expressed his countrys complete understanding of the major security and economic challenges being faced by Pakistan and assured the Prime Minister of full US support to help it overcome them. Holbrooke commended that despite all the difficulties being faced by Pakistans economy, its growth had returned because of Government of Pakistans economic policies and it was now for the international community to come forward to help Pakistan sustain that economic growth. He informed the Prime Minister that FoDP meeting scheduled to be held in Islamabad on July 07 would be used by the US side to again impress upon the donor countries to fulfil their aid commitments to Pakistan without further delay. Holbrooke stated that President Obama and Secretary of State Hilary Clinton were personally pursuing Pakistans case for ROZ legislation at the Capitol Hill by interacting directly with the Congressional leaders. The US Government at the same time was continuing its lobbying efforts with the European and Far Eastern countries for grant of enhanced market access to Pakistani products. He acknowledged the fact that US side itself had lagged behind in timely reimbursement of Pakistans CSF claims but assured the Prime Minister that all the measures required were being taken by the US to expedite these payments to Pakistan for assuaging its economic difficulties. Holbrooke welcomed the restoration of dialogue between Pakistan and India and stated that US would watch the forthcoming meetings between the two countries with a sense of anticipation. He agreed with the Prime Minister that Pakistan and US should coordinate their positions and help the Government of Afghanistan in its peace process. He extolled the role of Pakistan Army and law enforcement agencies which had suffered more than 4,000 casualties in their quest to defeat the menace of terrorism and commended Pakistan for resolutely playing a pivotal role in the war against terror despite these unparalleled sacrifices. Minister for Foreign Affairs Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Senator Sughra Imam, Secretary Foreign Affairs and senior officers were also present in the meeting.
