US to work with Pakistan to counter illegal trade


Islamabad: The United States government looks forward to continuing its robust cooperation with Pakistan to address the issues of illegal trade of drugs, narcotics and weapons to safeguard the region as well as the communities of the world.

“We have found Pakistan to be a great partner across the board and we have to rely even more on Pakistan since we are not in Afghanistan anymore to counter illegal trade of drugs, narcotics and weapons trafficking,” US Assistant Secretary of State for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs Todd D Robinson said in an exclusive interview. Robinson said that Pakistan had proven to be an able (not enabling) partner because they knew the issues and the territories.

“We can help them in training and equipment to do a really dangerous job,” he said. “I take my hat off to Pakistani partners. They are in many respects safeguarding the region and communities of the world.”
