Pak’s brave face over cancellation of contract by US lobbying firmNovember 14th, 2007 - 10:23 am ICT by admin
The embassy stated that the contract was in a “trial” stage and cancelled by mutual agreement.
However, the facts are otherwise. Cassidy acted honourably by saying that it was no longer in a position to deliver on the contract in an effective manner and hence it was pulling out.
Responding to questions related to the withdrawal of Cassidy and Associates from the contract, the Pakistan Embassy spokesman said that the contract for one year was still at the trial phase.
The statement further said that during the course of the first month of the contract, both the Pakistan Embassy and Cassidy and Associates came to the conclusion that the latter could not effectively implement the contract as lobbyist.
As a result, Cassidy and Associates asked for withdrawal from the contract that the Embassy has accepted, the Daily Times quoted spokesman, as saying. (ANI)
