    ISLAMABAD: President Asif Ali Zardari , in his inaugural address to the 6th South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (Saarc) conference in Islamabad, stated that Pakistan has been the victim of terrorism for far too long, having spent nearly $80 billion on the constant battle against militant groups.

    Zardari cited drug trafficking as the financial source of militancy.

    He called upon the Saarc countries to assist Pakistan in the fight against heroin and other drugs being smuggled into the country.

    “Heroin was developed as a war weapon,” said Zardari in his address.

    The president also called on the Saarc countries to help promote democracy in the region.

    Improvement of Pakistan-India relations

    The president met with Meira Kumar, speaker of Indian Lok Sabha – lower house of the Parliament, who called on him after the inauguration on Sunday.

    Briefing about the meeting, spokesperson to the president Senator Farhatullah Babar said that matters regarding further promoting Saarc role in various fields, increased contacts of parliamentarians, regional issues and Pakistan-India bilateral relations were discussed during the meeting.

    Zardari said that Pakistan was committed to a constructive, sustained and result oriented process of engagement with India and reiterated his call for the two countries to make determined efforts for friendly, cooperative and good neighbourly relations. He expressed satisfaction that the resumed dialogues between the two countries are progressing.

    The president further said that Pakistan was keen to promote greater interaction between the parliamentarians from both countries and noted that high level visits have significantly improved the atmosphere between the two countries.

    He expressed hope that bilateral parliamentary exchanges will continue in the future, which he said would help promote people to people contacts besides building mutual trust and understanding. He said the South Asia region has enormous potential and cooperation between the two countries was imperative to exploit this potential.

    The president recalled his recent two meetings with the Indian Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, one on the sidelines of 16th Summit of the Non Aligned Movement (NAM) at Tehran and second in New Delhi during his visit to Ajmer Sharif. He said that he was deeply touched by the warm hospitality extended to him at New Delhi and Ajmer Sharif. The president also recalled his meeting with ex-Prime Minister of India Rajiv Gandhi during the 4th Saarc Summit held in Islamabad in December, 1988.

    Kumar thanked Zardari for the meeting and conveyed best wishes of the Indian leadership and people for the government and the people of Pakistan. She said that her country desired good friendly relations with Pakistan and wanted to work together in coping with the common challenges and issues.

    The spokesperson said that Kumar lauded Zardari for his visionary leadership and sagacity in nourishing democracy in the country.

    Greater participation of women in SAARC

    Agendas for the Saarc’s female parliamentarians’ stability and economic development in the region were finalised at the conference.

    Dr Fehmida Mirza chaired a meeting in which a joint statement was finalized and it was agreed upon that the expansion of the Saarc platform would allow women to play a greater role in the association.

    Saarc speakers and parliamentarians visited the Parliament House in Islamabad and have declared Dr Mirza as the chairperson of the 6th Saarc conference.

    The vice chairperson has been selected as a representative from Maldives, where the speakers have agreed upon to hold the next annual Saarc conference.

    USA has given 200-400 million dollars monthly for the last 10 years along with Military and
    other aid separately this could easily be 35-50 billion+ dollars.

    How much will “victory” in Afghanistan cost? | A New Way Forward

    After eleven years, more than $570 billion, and no end in sight, it seems clear that the U.S. needs a new strategy for Afghanistan.

    http://csis.org/files/publication/120515_US_Spending_Afghan_War_SIGAR.pdf

    Sixty years of US aid to Pakistan: Get the data | Global development | guardian.co.uk

    Pakistan has historically been among the top recipients of US aid - since 1948, the US has sent more than £30bn in direct aid to the country. Nearly half of this has been for military assistance. However, since Osama bin Laden was discovered and killed in Abbottabad earlier this year, US president Barack Obama has come under increasing pressure to justify US aid spending in the country.

    US aid in Pakistan: Where's the money going? - How much US money is in Pakistan? - CSMonitor.com

    The US has provided $20.7 billion to Pakistan since 2002. A little more than two-thirds of that went to military use, the remainder to civilian.

    t $8.9 billion, is something called “Coalition Support Funds.” These are reimbursements for Pakistan’s military assistance in the war on terror.

    $4.8 billion, falls under “Economic Support Funds.” Most of this has gone to shore up the government’s budget,

    My math could be wrong?? 20 billion+8.9 billion+4.8 billion =34.7 billion

    more than 1 lack troops deployed sicne the past 8 years

    now recently monthly expenses reached 90billions PKR or roughly close to 1 billions USD per MONTH
    or 11 billions USD a year.


    and being an indian you should feel proud of getting 3.9billions USD aid per year..which equal to more than 200billions USD.

    ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s economy has been facing the loss of Rs3 billion every day and Rs93 billion every month due to the highly controversial US-led war on terror for the last 46 months of the Gilani regime.
    The State Bank of Pakistan had calculated a total loss of $68.9 billion till June 30, 2011 to the country’s economy due to the war on terror. However, after seven months of the current financial year this figure is estimated to have risen to almost $78 billion (Rs7020 billion=Rs7 trillion).
    In return, according to official sources, Pakistan directly or indirectly (through NGOs and USAID) received around $800 million to $900 million per year aid making the total around $11 billion (Rs990 billion).

    Pakistan lost Rs7,020 billion, got only Rs990 billion

    1) links to te "official" figures of money spent. The only thing Pak has done is to play double games and protect terrorists. Wonder when it fought the war on terror.

    2) India stopped accepting all aid from any country long back. India gives aid.
