PAKISTAN'S MOST POPULOUS PROVINCE REJECTS U.S AID


LAHORE, Pakistan - Pakistan hailed Bin Laden's death as a big step against militancy but was incensed by the raid in a garrison town not far from the capital, saying it was a violation of sovereignty. As a result of this activity, Pakistan's most populous province has cancelled six aid agreements with the United States in protest over the US raid that killed Osama Bin Laden, its law minister said yesterday.
The operation severely strained already uneasy ties between the US and Pakistan, whose cooperation is needed to stabilize Afghanistan.
  • "We have cancelled six MoUs (memorandums of understanding) with the US in the fields of health, education and solid waste management," said Rana Sanaullah(right photo), Law Minister of Punjab, the country's political nerve centre.
  • "We have told their concerned departments about our decision. This is our protest against the Abbottabad incident."
The Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) opposition party, which rules Punjab, has called for a review of the country's ties with Washington, urging the central government to reduce reliance on foreign aid.
