ISLAMABAD - Pakistan is profoundly perturbed over failure of the Friends of Democratic Pakistan (FoDP) to realize its financial pledges and it has been conveyed to the US, the UK, Japan and other friendly nations that prolonged financial crunch could impact Islamabads efforts against terrorism, The Nation has learnt reliably. The FODP was launched in New York on September 26, 2008 on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly session. The initial meeting was co-chaired by the United States, the United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates and Pakistan. The founding members states of the FODP included Britain, France, Germany, the United States, China, the United Arab Emirates, Canada, Turkey, Australia and Italy plus the United Nations and the European Union. Other countries also joined and at the meeting held in Abu Dhabi, later, a total of 24 member states and international organizations attended. Pakistan has sent a team of financial experts and foreign policy managers to London to take up the issue of FODP failure to rescue Pakistan in the face of grave economic crises. In addition to the ongoing visit of this team to the UK, Pakistani authorities have also raised this issue with the US and other friendly states in the FODP group, said an official here on Thursday requesting anonymity. The FODP will hold its ministerial meeting in Istanbul by late August to ponder over Pakistans request for extending assistance worth $2 billion to Islamabad during the current fiscal year 2009-10. Pakistans budget 2009-10 is dependant heavily on the pledges made by the FoDP during the Tokyo conference held in 2008 in which those countries promised to provide $5.28 billion to Islamabad over two years period. Pakistan wants its friendly states to extend $ 3.5 billion for poverty alleviation, $ 1.2 billion for education and health and $ 1.7 billion for security related issues including fight against militancy. The response of friendly nations is poor, so far, barring few countries like the United States and we want them to realize how difficult it is for Pakistan to fight the menace of terror when it is confronting the unprecedented economic crisis, the official said. He said, If they failed to meet our expectations in Istanbul meeting as well as other interactions in the coming months, it definitely would impact the efforts of Pakistan against terrorism. Another official here when contacted said that Pakistan had also prepared a project plan worth millions of dollars for the rehabilitation of displaced people from Swat and other areas affected by war against the Taliban militants. This project plan will be presented before the friendly states in the forthcoming FODP meeting in Istanbul with hopes that the group will extend all possible help to Islamabad to carry out the vital project in a successful manner, the official said.
