Netherlands suspends aid to PakistanNovember 14th, 2007 - 8:31 am ICT by admin
The Netherlands had budgeted some 15 million euros (21.7 million dollars) in aid to Pakistan for 2007 and some 12 million euros has already been spent. The remainder is now suspended, Koenders’ spokesman Franceso Mascini said.
For next year the Netherlands had planned to give some 40 million euros in aid to Pakistan mostly for education. That is now under review, The News reported.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s spokesman has said that Britain wants Pakistan to restore the normal constitutional process and to hold elections as planned in January.
“From our point of view we would like to see elections on schedule in January and we do want to see the restoration of the normal democratic and constitutional process,” the spokesman said. (ANI)
